    Welcome to the community of Yakutat, gateway to the Hubbard Glacier, location of the historic Mallott’s General Store and home of the St. Elias Dancers, a Tlingit dance group. 

Located on the scenic Gulf Coast of Alaska, and surrounded by Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Tongass National Forest, Yakutat attracts a wide variety of outdoor enthusiasts to hike beaches, float rivers, explore bays and passages, climb mountains, view glaciers, and surf remote breaks. Yakutat Bay provides the finest saltwater sport fishing in Alaska. A variety of visitor services are available in Yakutat, and Alaska Airlines provides daily jet service from Seattle, Juneau, and Anchorage. Additionally, the Alaska State Ferry Kennicott now stops in Yakutat several times each month during the spring, summer, and early fall seasons. Mount St. Elias stands like a perfect pyramid soaring 18,008 feet into the heavens on the Yakutat skyline, the second tallest peak in the United States. The Tlingit name is Was-eiti-shaa, meaning "Mountain in Icy Bay". Danish explorer Vitus Bering watched the mountain emerge as the mist cleared following days of fog-bound drifting while exploring for the Czar of Russia in 1741. The discovery was made on, and named in honor of a Danish holiday, St. Elias Day. Mount St. Elias rests at the head of Malaspina Glacier, the largest piedmont glacier in North America. Hubbard Glacier is the largest tidewater glacier in North America and is located just 30 miles by air or water from Yakutat. Each spring and fall, major migrations of waterfowl, raptors, and shorebirds pass along the Yakutat Coast providing outstanding viewing and photography opportunities. Hundreds of thousands of salmon spawn in Area Rivers and streams each fall, attracting concentrations of foraging eagles and brown bears. Home Page | About | Rates | Links |  Contact
