At 13.2 million acres of Alaskan wilderness, this, the largest U.S. park, is six times the size of Yellowstone and larger than nine U.S. states—yet it has only two roads, together barely totaling 105 miles. Combined with its contiguous neighbor parks, the 24 million acres form the world’s largest international protected area, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Cool Facts: The park has North America’s highest concentration of glaciers and encompasses nine of the 16 tallest mountains in the U.S. The park’s namesake, the 14,163-foot Mount Wrangell, is one of the world’s largest active volcanoes; on clear days, you can see it smoking.

Don’t Miss: A tour of the historic Kennecott copper mine buildings, followed by lunch at the New Golden Saloon in the funky former boomtown of McCarthy (pop: 42). Or, try rafting the Copper River or world-class fishing in Yakutat.
