Add To Plan

Enjoy a hike that focuses on a mix of local life, history and of course, exercise. Meeting your guide on the pier, you'll receive a short safety briefing and then head to the starting point of the trail.

Mt. Dewey is the hill directly behind the cruise ship dock and it has historical ties to John Muir. It was here that the famous naturalist built a fire so big that the people of the town believed it to be St. Elmo's Fire. A short walk up through a local neighborhood leads to the trail constructed in part by the local high school students as part of their hands-on education program. As you climb this hill, your guide will point out a variety of local plants and share some of the colorful history of Wrangell, one of the oldest frontier towns of Alaska. Arriving at the top, there is an overlook that peeks between the trees down upon the town and your cruise ship.

After having a chance to absorb the beauty of the forest and the wonderful scenery, your guide will escort you back down the hill and to your waiting ship.

Please note: This tour includes moderate hiking over a mostly natural trail which may be wet. It is not available to guests who utilize a wheelchair or those guests with mobility concerns. Participants should be in good physical condition, dress warmly in layers and have a water-proof jacket. Sturdy, water-proof closed-toe shoes or hiking boots are mandatory. Bottled water is provided.
