Discover the natural beauty of Alaska’s Wrangell St Elias National Park and Preserve, the largest national park in the USA. While two paved highways lead you inside the park, flightseeing tours afford excellent aerial vistas and access to remote areas. Lofty snow-capped mountain ranges, verdant valleys with glacier-fed rivers and waterfalls, volcanoes, deep canyons, sparkling lakes, and alpine forests make up the diverse landscapes of this vast wilderness destination. The Malaspina, Nebesna, and Hubbard Glaciers, as well as Bagley Icefield and Mount St Elias, are some of the popular natural highlights here. The 20th century copper mining town of Kennicott is one of the historical landmarks in the region. Small settlements of the native Alaskan Athabaskan people and the Tlingit communities are seen across the park. Myriad native wildlife including Dall sheep, bison and bear roam the region. Apart from winter activities, the park is a playground for adventure seekers with plenty of opportunity for hiking, mountain biking, sportfishing, kayaking, and mountaineering.
