Wrangell-St. Elias National Park
Welcome to the nation’s largest national park, the beautiful stretch of land where you'll encounter some of the tallest mountains, largest glaciers, and most important Alaskan history. Sitting on 13.2 million acres, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park can hold Switzerland, Yellowstone National Park, and Yosemite National Park all within its boundaries! Known for its incredible mountains, the park is also home to nine of 16 of the tallest mountain peaks in the United States. Near the confluence of the area's four major mountain ranges, your group will also find the Wrangell Mountain, an active volcano that last erupted in the early 1900s.
During your visit to this World Heritage Site national park and preserve your group will get a taste of true Alaskan wildlife and history, with the winning mix of rugged yet inviting outdoor adventure. The few roads connecting through the park give you a sense of discovery. Some of the many exciting things you will be able to see up-close and personal during this trip include views of Bagley Icefield, the largest sub-polar ice field on the continent, the Malaspina Glaciers which is larger than the state of Rhode Island, Copper River as a very successful copper, ore, and gold mining site, and tons of native Athabaskan Indian villages perfect for watching the abundant caribou or moose wildlife.
