    Default Share flight costs

    I'm looking to do a week long trip to Lake Clark NP (or anywhere scenic and remote) the first week in August. I'm looking to share the flight costs and have a hiking partner. I'm an experienced backpacker, first time in Alaska. I have hiked in Grizzly country before and know how to avoid them.

    Alternatively if there are any weeklong 7-8 day, remote hiking loops anyone could help me with within driving distance from Anchorage that would be cool as well, it would save me the nearly $2k to get into Lake Clark.

    Flights are booked to Anchorage and I'm ready for the backcountry
    Thanks,
    Dave

    Default Wrangells

    I would go to the Wrangells. You could proabably fly in for less than 1000 and be in a remote place with no one else or you could drive there and still enjoy solitude for less.
