Wrangell-St Elias National Park

This Huge Alaskan State Park Is Also One Of The Most Underrated

By Mina Elwell


Alaska is home to an enormous chunk of wilderness that even many of the most adept national park visitors have missed: Wrangell-St Elias National Park & Preserve.
This park is about the size of the entire nation of Switzerland. The park's main attraction is probably also what keeps so many visitors away: Its true wilderness.
You can see grizzly, black, and polar bears, as well as lynx, bison, and moose, while traversing the rugged landscape and standing in the shadows of ancient mountains and glaciers.
You'll want to bring hiking gear, because many choose to hike across the land. You can also climb the icy mountains, kayak and raft on its rivers and along the shoreline.
