Kluane / Wrangell-St Elias / Glacier Bay / Tatshenshini-Alsek

Alaska, Yukon, British Columbia

Inscribed 1979, 1992, 1994

The Kluane / Wrangell-St. Elias / Glacier Bay / Tatshenshini-Alsek national parks and protected areas along the boundary of Canada and the United States of America contain examples of some of the world’s longest and most spectacular glaciers as well as the largest non-polar icefield in the world. The parks demonstrate some of the best examples of glaciation and modification of landscape by glacial action in a region still tectonically active, spectacularly beautiful, and where natural processes prevail.
