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.
The Glacier and Tundra Exploration trip is a perfect backpacking trip for people interested in pushing their own personal limits, learning new skills, and spending some quality time in the splendid Alaskan wilderness.
