Route Description

Gold was discovered in the hills and this log cabin town sprang up nearly overnight. The year was 1913 yet today this town still exists and offers the rare experience of a frontier town in a rugged mountain setting. From Chisana you can day hike or hike a loop through the hills where gold was discovered, or head off across the tundra to another airstrip for a later pickup.

In Chisana you can stay at a log cabin the National Park Service renovated or at a local B&B. Enjoy the friendly atmosphere and clean mountain air at this fly in only, remote Alaskan town.

Certificate of Excellence

Your flight (from Chitina) into McCarthy to tour the Kennicott Mines was an awesome flight. Even though I don’t like to fly, you pilot Jason did such a good job of making me feel comfortable and relaxed. Thank you so very much for the opportunity to have such a great experience of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. It is truly and experience I will never forget..
