**Applies to most of our trips.  Our Alaska Multi-Sport Tours are spent along Alaska's spectacular network of roads and highways.  Our backpacking trip into the North Wrangells in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park does require a 6-hour drive to get to our air taxi operator in Nabesna.  Of course transportation is included on both of these trips.
