Hikers looking for a more family-friendly day in the great outdoors would be best suited to plan their flight to Kaltag for June, July, and August, when they can visit Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve and enjoy all that the park has to offer.
Most people head to the ski mountains during January, when the chance of fresh snow and ideal temperatures are most likely. Ski mountains such as Alyeska Ski Resort are very popular in Kaltag. Alternatively, Far North Bicentennial Park is also a very popular ski mountain in the Kaltag area.
Nulato Airport, Koyukuk Airport, Galena Airport, Unalakleet Airport or Shaktoolik Airport can be an alternative airport used for travel to Kaltag.
