Overview

The Trip

Spend a week in a spectacular and rarely visited park. Wrangell St. Elias is the United States' largest National Park. Its 13.2 million acres cover every conceivable Alaskan highlight. The park contains 18,000-foot peaks; 14 of the tallest mountains on the continent; countless glaciers; historical artifacts from Alaska's mining boom; and teeming wildlife. The Copper River, running along the park’s western edge, is an important Salmon fishery. The high country is home to bears, wolves, and a large population of Dall sheep.

Our days will be packed with adventure, and the end of each will be in a comfortable bed in a historical, family-owned lodge.
