This is a long, difficult and challenging route but for the experienced and prepared adventurer, truly the trip of a lifetime.

Certificate of Excellence

We had a truly spectacular visit in Alaska but the highlight of our vacation was certainly our week-long backpacking trip in Wrangell-St. Elias. The flights in and out were awesome; we have great photos along with fond memories of the flight with Wrangell Mountain Air. Thanks again for getting us in and out safely and with good humor and conversation. We hope to fly with you again on our next Alaskan Trip. With memories of flightseeing in the Wrangell..
