What brings people to Wrangell, and what makes them stay? Find out from the comfort of a spacious van as you explore the concept of "out the road." To get away from the daily grind, Southeast Alaskans go out the road. You'll do your own out the road journey today, joining a local guide to learn about life in Wrangell.
The road runs along the waterfront as you travel 16 miles south of Wrangell. Watch for wildlife such as eagles, herons and deer. The houses become fewer and farther between and you'll find yourself surrounded by cedar, hemlock, spruce and alder, with a carpet of blueberries, dogwood, and moss. You're traveling through the Tongass National Forest, covering history, botany and Native legends -- essential aspects of life on the Inside Passage.
A short, easy walk to the Three Sisters Overlook, 500 feet above sea level, affords a spectacular view of the water of the Inside Passage and the peaked mountains of Etolin Island. Enjoy a light snack of local fare beside a warming fire. Take this opportunity to ask your guide any additional questions and to take photos before returning to the ship.
Please note: Dress warmly in layers with a wind- and waterproof outer layer; bring gloves, a scarf and a warm hat.
