Flight Seeing


Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is so vast in size, there is no better way to see it than from a plane.  These are a few of the fine local companies we recommend.


Flying in to the back-country of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is, for many, a trip of a lifetime. McCarthy is the geographic center of this 13.2 million acre wilderness. The remote areas of this pristine world heritage site are accessible by bush plane, offering a variety of outdoor experiences unique to Alaska. Many visitors are finding that a fly-in guided day trip is a great way to experience the back-country, yet return to the comfort of a lodge or B&B in the evening. Exciting fly-in glacier trekking, alpine hiking and river rafting are all available in day, or multi-day trips. We use landing areas throughout Wrangell-St. Elias National Park that provide access to some of the most pristine mountain wilderness in North America.
