Wrangell-St. Elias Day Hikes
We’ll head off from Nabesna, Wrangell – St. Elias National Park, and hike the north side of the mountains. Excellent dayhiking opportunities for the adventurer, from easy to strenuous hikes. We can take a 3 mile jaunt up a trail, or set off for a 10 mile round trip adventure across the tundra.
There are countless hikes available here, and we can discuss which one/s work best for you and your group. Most of the hikes will be on trail, with no real serious obstacles to encounter. This is very different hiking to the backpacking trips on the website. Some off-trail opportunities exist for hiking in the higher subalpine regions.
Available on a first come, first served basis. Accomodations are not provided but we will offer recommendations for nearby lodging/camping.
Cost: From $250.00
What’s included: lunch, dinner and guide service
What’s required: hiking clothes, solid footwear and raingear, a reasonable fitness level and an adventurous spirit

On a scale of 1 – 5, five being the most challenging, two hiking boots is at the easier end of the spectrum.
1 boot = basecamp/dayhike easy
2 boots = easier backpacking trip
3 boots = intermediate level trip
4 boots = intermediate to advanced backpacking
5 boots = ask yourself are you really ready for this?
Expect whatever level you think might best fit you to be one level LOWER on our scale. Hiking here in Alaska is generally a step or three above what you’ll find in the Lower 48 states.
Realize that backpacking is never “easy”. You’re carrying from 35-50+ pounds on your back day after day. You’ll be hiking for a number of hours each day (varies trip to trip, day to day), and that’s not “easy” for most people.
That said, our “2 hiking boots” level should meet the need for most novice backpackers, and are generally what I recommend for families with younger kids, etc as well. Terrain challenges aren’t usually a problem, and the walking is somewhat more orthodox. You won’t be traversing 1 mile of steep sidehill covered in slippery rocks, or snaking through dense thickets of alder and willow.
