This lodge in the middle of Wrangell St Elias National park is the crown jewel. If you go to Alaska and miss this national park, you have missed the most beautiful place in Alaska. Kennicott is easy to access by Wrangel Air Service or a 3 hr ride on a dirt road. It is on the site of an old copper mine, and a beautiful glacier. Your room has a panoramic view of the Chugach Range, and the Wrangell Mountains. The food plan here is reasonable, and the finest I've eaten in a long time. The portions are huge, and you will gain weight. The service is fabulous. It is pristine clean. If you do not explore this area, you've missed something very special.
