Visit Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve

Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the world’s largest international protected wilderness, as it joins two of Canada’s national parks. As America’s largest national park, it rises from sea level all the way up to 18,008 feet at the highest peak. Within the 13.2 million acres of the park, the Wrangell, Saint Elias, Chugach and Alaska mountain ranges merge to create an alpine paradise that is home to nine of the country’s 16 highest peaks and some of its largest glaciers. The towns of Kennicott and McCarthy are located in the heart of the park and are a great basecamp for excursions. Guided hiking tours range from easy day trips to extreme multi-day adventures. For a different perspective, hop in the car and drive the McCarthy Road. Keep an eye out for historical sites and places to pull off the road for views of the Copper and Chitina Rivers.
