Wrangell-St. Elias National Park
Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, the largest national park in the United States, is located in the eastern region of south-central Alaska (see map). In this 31,000 sq miles extensive area, the Chugach-, Wrangell- and St. Elias mountain ranges come together. In the park, with peaks rising to well over 16,000 feet, you find the largest and most active volcano in North America as well as the largest concentration of glaciers. Because of the untouched landscape, it is the least visited national park in America.There is only one road through the park to the settlements Kennicott and McCarthy, situated at the edge of the Kennicott Glacier. An alternative way to get here is by bush plane. The communities were established around 1900 when copper was found in this region. McCarthy and Kennicott are the two bases from which to explore this area further.Fly-in backpacking, rafting, ice climbing, glacier hiking and a visit to the copper mines are possible. The extreme vastness of unblemished nature makes a stay in the national park an unforgettable experience!
