Wrangell is a close-knit community and has small town charm. Mother Nature provides excellent outdoor activities throughout the year. Wrangell boasts clean air, water, streets, and safe neighborhoods for the 2300 people calling it home. It is a full-service community with great health care facilities, modern communication systems as well as dependable transportation by air and water to and from the island. Wrangell is rural and remote but is easily accessible. Winters in Southeast Alaska are considered mild with temperatures that seldom drop below freezing. Spring and Fall are cleansing with plenty of fresh rain. Summer has the perfect mix of warmth and light summer breezes with Fireweed and Forget-Me-Nots painting the beautiful landscape.
Wildlife abounds in the area. Eagles, shorebirds, herons and songbirds dot the trees on Mt. Dewey overlooking downtown and along the Zimovia Highway bike path. A variety of boat excursions take you to scenic areas to view black and brown bears, migratory birds, eagles, sea lions, harbor seals, and whales. Go fishing for the tasty salmon and halibut. During July and August, Anan Bear and Wildlife Observatory, managed by the US Forest Service, is a favorite spot to view brown and black bears feasting on salmon. The Stikine River, a designated wilderness area is abundant with wildlife that lured the Hudson Bay Company to establish a settlement here.
Outdoor adventure and activities await you. The protected waters in Southeast Alaska are filled with Islands and bays and harbors rich with wildlife just waiting to be explored. The waterways provide excellent sea kayaking and opportunity for exploration by wildlife charter tours. Fishing is spectacular. Halibut and all 5 species of salmon are key targets by visiting fishermen. Nearby lakes and streams provide excellent opportunities for both spin cast and fly fishing.
