Number and scale loom large here, magnified by splendid isolation. The largest U.S. national park, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve equals six Yellowstones, with peaks upon peaks and glaciers after glaciers. Follow any braided river or stream to its source and you will find either a receding, advancing, or tidewater glacier. The park lets you sample representative Alaska wildlife as well as historic mining sites.

Join Outdoor Recreation on this unique, 4-day expedition into the heart of the park. Spend quality time around the campfire with your family under the midnight sun, then take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks and glaciers that practically hang off of the mountainsides, as we paddle on a glacier-made lake and complete a day-hike on an actual glacier.
