Wrangell Mountain Air’s base of operations, in McCarthy, Alaska, is positioned deep within Wrangell-St. Elias National Park – America’s largest national park at 13.2 million acres and part of the world’s largest preserved wilderness. Guests enjoy daily scheduled air service between McCarthy and Chitina, fly-in day tour packages with guided glacier hiking or tours of the historic Kennecott mill building, charter air taxi service from many towns in Alaska, and world-class flightseeing. For the adventurous, fly-in hiking and backpacking trips, rafting, glacier trekking, and wilderness camping are highly recommended as day, or multi-day adventures. Visitors cannot grasp the scale and grandeur of Wrangell-St. Elias until they fly above it in a small aircraft. We believe that Wrangell-St. Elias offers the best scenery in all of Alaska and, combined with our competitive rates and 30+ years experience, is the best flightseeing opportunity in Alaska!
We at Wrangell Mountain Air consider ourselves very fortunate to share these amazing glacial surroundings with our passengers. At the same time, we’re quite aware that the aircraft so necessary to this task do contribute to climate change – and environmental shifts we see as we fly through the Alaskan wilderness. As a company, we seek and contribute to projects which help offset the carbon dioxide that our airplanes produce. Our goal is to be carbon neutral in our air operations and we gladly match passengers‘ collective contributions up to $1,500, each year. We hope you will join us in aiming for a carbon-neutral footprint in the sky this summer!
