Wrangell is located in Southeast Alaska in the heart of the Tongass National Forest. Surrounded by craggy mountain peaks, lush temperate rainforest, and glaciers; we are home to both black and brown bears. Our history is entwined with the geology of this land, the arrival of the Tlingit down the mighty Stikine River, and the discovery of the island by Russians exploring the Inside Passage. We live with the rhythm of nature, the ebb and flood of tides, the return of salmon to streams and the gathering of bears feeding to withstand the next winter. Bearfest is our tribute to our surroundings and the nature of what makes Wrangell so special. Please join us in celebrating the Bears of Alaska and more, each year during the last week of July.
