What is there to do if you don't take flights?
Hi sorry I just saw question, if you go in summer there is fishing there are hikes they can take you on also but mainly this place is about seeing the grandeur of Wrangell St Elias National Park by air and stopping many places you won’t believe are possible until you see it for yourself.
