One extraordinary ferry crossing. Two National Scenic Byways. Three remote mountain ranges. Four massive glaciers. Six wild rivers. Twenty hours of daylight. All this in eight days of wilderness exploration on the road less traveled in south-central Alaska. Under the midnight sun, wildlife and wildflowers abound. You’ll enjoy hiking through forests, meadows and over glaciers, encounter indigenous Alaskan cultures and learn about early exploitation of the area’s resources.

Join Big Round World on an excursion to the Wrangell-St.Elias National Park and Preserve, the largest national park in the country and one of the least visited. Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is part of an international world heritage site which contains some of the finest pristine wilderness in North America accessible by road.

Suited to the easy-moderate hiker with some more challenging sections. Group size 12.
