the adventure of travel
option #1: drive
The condition of the McCarthy Road has improved greatly over the past few years, so much so that many car rental companies are now willing to allow select vehicles on the McCarthy Road.
Here's a list of car rental companies with promotional codes that allow you access to their vehicles for travel on the McCarthy Road:
option #2: fly
Flying in to the back-country of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is, for many, a trip of a lifetime. The remote areas of this pristine world heritage site are accessible by bush plane, offering a variety of outdoor experiences unique to Alaska. Many visitors are finding that a fly-in guided day trip is a great way to experience the back-country, yet return to the comfort of Ma Johnson's Hotel.
option #3: shuttle
Whether you're wanting to do a day trip or multi-day stay and don't want to leave a rental car sitting, there are several shuttle options for you. Sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery as you are driven to us.
If you are in McCarthy, do not miss staying at Ma Johnon’s Hotel. It has remarkable atmosphere, it is super clean and inviting. The owner, Neil, went out of his way to help us plan. They serve great breakfast and the price is very reasonable. We are on our way back!
