This brief but very enjoyable tour gives you a personalized look at some of Wrangell's most popular attractions, all in the comfort of a van.
Wrangell is the only community in Alaska to have been ruled by four nations, the Tlingit, Russian, British and United States. The community is rich in Alaska Native history. Your fully guided tour will give you a glimpse into the world of the Tlingit People. Once a great nation, the Tlingit territory spread from Dixon Entrance in the south, near the city of Ketchikan, to the small village of Yakutat, the northern most community on the Inside Passage. The territory that the Tlingits ruled is comparable to that of the country of Norway.
