One-Day Tours to McCarthy-Kennicott

Book Now

If you only have one day to visit Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, you can see the glaciers and historic copper mining town of Kennicott, near the center of the park, on our full day, 12.5 hour tour to McCarthy from Chitina. 

The 12.5 hour tour from Chitina gives you eight hours of free time at McCarthy and Kennicott, so you can hike or enjoy additional tours. And our Full-Day Trip with Root Glacier Hike makes it easy to add the popular guided glacier hike to your one-day trip.

Travel by van on a narrow gravel road, built on the old railway of the Copper River and Northwestern Railroad. Watch for wildlife and observe relics from the historic railroad on the 2.5 hour drive from Chitina to McCarthy. Travel on the McCarthy Road is an adventure into the heart of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park.
