Winter conditions add more challenges to those wanting to explore this gorgeous and diverse landscape, but as you can see, the backcountry scenes are worth the cold.

Now is the perfect time to start planning your summer trip to Wrangell-St. Elias National Park in Alaska. Hike through stunning scenes of wildflowers and #waterfalls, climb mountain peaks and glaciers or kayak along 155 miles of breathtaking coastline.
