Enjoy a van tour of the native culture and history of the Alaskan people. 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's 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.

Enjoy a personalized tour of Wrangell's most popular attractions in the comfort of a 7 or 14 passenger van, or a 40-passenger bus. This tour is fully narrated and gives you an orientation of the island and its attractions. Six sites are visited.

This tour requires a minimum of 4 persons per booking.

Petroglyph Beach - an Alaska State Historic Site. Wrangell's Petroglyph Beach Park is unique because of the number of petroglyphs at the site and the ease with which people can see them.

Guests will learn how the fish is prepared as well as what special wood is used to smoke this Alaskan delicacy. Smoking fish is a seasonal activity, live processing may not be included in the interpretation.

Chief Shakes Tribal House - unique because it is located on a beautiful island in the middle of Wrangell's Reliance Harbor. This is the site of the "Last Great Potlatch" of the local Tlingit people.

The history of the tribal house as well as a description of daily living and the type of tools that were used by early inhabitants will be shared at this time.
