Larger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Switzerland combined, Wrangell-St. Elias is the largest national park in the US and a place that defies superlatives.

McCarthy, Wangell St-Elias National ParkIt encompasses several mountain ranges and boasts nine of the sixteen highest peaks in North America, including the second and third highest.

The park is bordered by Canada’s Kluane National Park and together, they encompass a country-sized sprawl of canyons, valleys, towering mountains and ice-fields. Bagley Icefield is the largest non-polar ice sheet in North America, and the Malaspina Glacier alone is larger than Rhode Island state.

Wildlife here transcends all other Alaskan parks in its abundance and diversity, with healthy populations of moose, grizzly and black bears, Dall sheep, wolverines, mountain goats and three herds of caribou.
