Glacier & Tundra Backpack Trip

Snowy peaks, living glaciers, & lush tundra

Come experience the wild beauty of Alaska while backpacking with us on the Glacier and Tundra Exploration trip. At 13.2 million acres, Alaska’s Wrangell St. Elias National Park is the largest national park in the United States. It is home to massive glaciers, lofty mountain peaks, and lush, tundra-carpeted valleys. This trip gives you a great sampling of the variety of terrain found in the Park as you travel through one of its most breathtaking glacial valleys.
