Alaska Cruisetours: Wrangell-St. Elias National Park
With its grand vistas and boundless landscapes, Alaska’s Wrangell-St. Elias National Park exceeds even the most imaginative expectations because of its distinction as being the nation's largest.
Stretching along the Canadian border in scenic south central Alaska, this robust land is quilted with wandering rivers, lakes, glaciers and some of the most dramatic mountain ranges to be found in North America. In fact, nine of the 16 highest peaks in the country are here, including the park's namesakes: Mount St. Elias and Mount Wrangell — the latter an active volcano that last erupted in 1911.
Adventure, History and Nature
With so much space — a whopping 13.2 million acres in all — there is a wide array of activities and opportunities to explore. River rafting, sport fishing, sea kayaking and flightseeing are just some of the options sure to appeal to the adventurer in you. For a more relaxed pace, take a stroll along one of the many meandering trails, or tour the historic Kennicott Copper Mine. You can even see a portion of the legendary Alaskan pipeline.
Sightseeing by Land or Air
Two main roads travel deep into the heart of the park and provide easy access to a number of remote points of interest. But if you've ever dreamed of soaring over treetops like an eagle, a “flightseeing” tour of the park may be your ticket. There's certainly no shortage of breathtaking sights to see, with more than 150 glaciers making their way down the slopes of the three mountain ranges that converge here.
