A great variation that is surprisingly seldom done. Instead of basecamping at Wolverine, try this interesting circumnavigation of the mesa. See this interesting feature from every angle as you travel all the way around it. You’ll be surprised how different it looks on the back side. The route takes you through quite a variety of terrain and keeps you up in the high country for the whole trip.

A quick message to say thanks. We flew from Chitina to McCarthy on Friday, June 20 and then returned to Chitina on Sunday, June 22. This was our first flight on a small plane. Our pilots, Don and Martin (as well as Natalie), made us feel at ease and made our flights enjoyable. We especially appreciate your pilots' expertise as well as them describing various points of interest as we flew. Overall, we definitely enjoyed our experience and would recommend Wrangell Mountain Air to others. We hope to return to the area again. Thanks again for making our trip to Alaska safe and memorable..
