St. Elias Alpine Guides have been leading adventures in the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park since 1978! We are the local experts for backpacking, hiking, mountaineering and river rafting in the country’s largest national park.  We are located in McCarthy-Kennecott, Alaska – out in the middle of nowhere – for a reason.  Denali is just way too crowded! Folks who come to Wrangell St. Elias National Park really have to want to be here and that makes the experience even better!

St. Elias Alpine Guides has been guiding backpacking, climbing, skiing and rafting trips in the Wrangell and St. Elias Mountains for over 35 years. We are proud to continue our long legacy as explorers and leaders in this wild land and invite you to join us on that mission!
