In a National Park that is six (yes, six!) times the size of Yellowstone, very little of the landscape is accessible by foot. One of the best, and most exciting ways to experience Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is to float it via the braided rivers. In this way, guests become one with the very veins of this fabulous wilderness.
