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.
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..
