Visit Wrangell-St. Elias National Park | A Designated World Heritage Site in Alaska and Canada !
Even in a state like Alaska which is famous for its size, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park stands out. It is by far the largest of our national parks - almost six times the size of Yellowstone. You fly over it and see mountains beyond mountains, glaciers after glaciers, rivers upon rivers. You float a river and watch the moods and mountains change by the minute. As you walk the tundra, you find Dall's sheep and mountain goats grazing.Four major mountain ranges converge here: the volcanic Wrangells, the Alaska, the Chugach, and the St. Elias - tallest coastal mountains in the world. Together they contain 9 of the 16 highest peaks in the United States, 4 of them above 16,000 feet. There are more than 150 glaciers; one, the Malaspina, is larger than Rhode Island. In 1980 Wrangell-St. Elias and adjoining Kluane National Park Reserve in Canada, along with Glacier Bay NP and Tatshenshini in British Columbia, were designated a United Nations World Heritage site. Vast and rugged as it is, the park is not a fortress. Two roads lead into small communities, remnants of the gold- and copper-mining towns that thrived in the early days of the 20th century. Today not mining but the nearly limitless hiking, rafting, kayaking, and climbing opportunities beckon. Explore Alaska's wonders with our breathtaking Alaska driving tours and railroad/road combo tours that include a visit to Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Whether by road or rail, our expeditions promise awe-inspiring views of Alaska's wilderness. Join us for an unforgettable adventure, seamlessly combining the thrill of the open road or the comfort of rail travel with the stunning landscapes of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park.
