Enjoy the flight in to the mouth of the Chitistone Canyon and land at the Glacier Creek airstrip. Surrounded by jagged peaks, glaciers and rivers, take advantage of the National Park Service public use cabin or camp on the dryas bars of the Chitistone River.
From the airstrip you can hike the Chitistone canyon, climb to alpine meadows or access the Twaharpie Glacier. The awesome scenery of this secluded place will astound you.
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..
