Alaska Mountain Guides & Climbing School Inc. is based in Haines, Alaska, a small town located near the top of the Inside Passage. Haines borders Glacier Bay National Park. The park and the adjacent 27 million acres, including Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, comprise the largest protected wilderness area in the world. It is an extremely jagged and glaciated mountain landscape that includes the world's largest non-polar ice caps, pristine fjords, and wilderness rivers. Peak elevations in this region range up to 20,000 feet. The terrain is among the best in North America for learning climbing skills. The area also offers world class sea kayaking, rafting, trekking, and skiing. Our expedition center in Haines is an outstanding gateway for accessing this unparalleled wilderness area.
