Do you dream of an Alaskan adventure far removed from the hustle and bustle of Anchorage or the tourist-trodden Seward and Kenai Fjords? Then consider booking a private flight to a jet charter airport in Wrangell, Alaska.
When you land in Wrangell, Alaska, you’re removed from the cruise ship ports that cart tourists from one Alaskan town to another and instead transported to an authentic Alaskan experience. Tucked away in the heart of the Alaskan Panhandle on Wrangell Island, Wrangell, Alaska boasts a fascinating history that began with the Shtax’héen Kwáan Tlingit. The Tlingit people named themselves for the Stikine River that winds its way through the mountains just north of Wrangell.
Centuries after the Tlingit called the land home, the region was later claimed by the Russians, British and finally the Americans, but the local Tlingit heritage still remains in this breathtaking crossroads of culture and natural beauty. Located in Wrangell, visit the replica Chief Shakes Tribal House built in the 1930s one on of Wrangell’s harbors accessible by a pedestrian bridge. Owned by the local Tlingit, visitors are welcome to explore the building and the original totems that surround it. Looking for a guided experience of the local culture? Stop by the Wrangell Museum to learn about the Tlingit as well as the European fur traders and gold miners that called the region home.
