While it's true you can't drive here, there are several other transportation options! And beautiful lodging once you arrive.
Wrangell is served by Alaska Airlines with Boeing 737 jets. Flight 65 is northbound from Seattle and departs around 7am daily arriving around 9:30am after a stop in Ketchikan. Flight 64 departs Anchorage at 12:45 and Juneau at 3:15 pm, arriving in Wrangell at 5:15 after a stop in Petersburg. These flights are also available with their codeshare partners.
The 2020 summer ferry schedule was released on March 2nd--you can find the schedule here. Coming north from the Lower 48, the best places to catch the ferry are Bellingham, WA and (if you'd like to save some money and have a little driving adventure) Prince Rupert, BC. Wrangell is the first stop after Ketchikan. The ride is about 700 miles long and takes 48 hrs. Alternately, if driving north, catch us on your southbound leg by boarding the ferry in Haines or Skagway. We’re the stop after Petersburg.
Other options for getting to and from Wrangell include float planes and charter boats. Both are for shorter distances but are sometimes the best and certainly the most scenic way to get between smaller towns in Southeast Alaska. Contact us if we can give you recommendations for either float plane or water taxi services.
