Welcome, Home, to Chisana.

“Shushanna” (Shoo-shan-na)

Chisana is located in the remote South Wrangell St. Elias National Park & Preserve.

This is some of the most beautiful and majestic scenery anywhere on Earth.

For someone who wants to get off the beaten path and away from the mainstream of tourism, this is the place for you.

Our facilities are located on 80 acres of private land and are totally surrounded by magnificent wilderness on all sides.

There are no roads into Chisana at all. The only way in is to fly in.

We are truly one of the most remote and scenic areas in Alaska. You will be right in the middle of it.

Although secluded, as we are, the facilities here at Pioneer Outfitters are very comfortable, clean and with a relaxed atmosphere.

Pioneer Outfitters has been owned and operated by the same family for over nine decades.

We treat you like family here because when you are with Pioneer Outfitters, you are family.


~ Guest cabins in Chisana are always ready to welcome guests.

Comfortable cabins await you in Chisana, when you arrive for the first time and when you return from your adventure.

Home cooked meals and snacks taken family style and the showers are always hot and ready. If you are coming with your wife or honey, or brought a young one, we have couples and family accommodations as well.

We are located in the Wrangell St.-Elias National Park and preserve, surrounded by the Wrangell Mountains and the Nutzotin Mountains. Chisana is accessible only by aircraft and is home.

To find us on a map, Chisana is at 62*4 min 3 sec  North (Latitude), 142*2 min 7 sec West (Longitude).

CAMP Accommodations

Our camps vary from small cabins with propane cook stoves and wood heat stoves to very comfortable wall tent camps.

We use high quality nylon sleeping tents and wall tents with stoves on the last hunt in certain camps.
** Even though we have an extensive inventory of tents, camp gear, horse tack and that we strive for perfection and comfort on all of our hunts, it is good to note that we hunt the wild and wooly interior of the South Wrangell Mountains.


Our Adventures and Excursions are true wilderness adventures.

We cook over an open fire or on camp stoves, sit around campfires, sleep on the ground, in tents. We’ll spend our days living an adventure, exposed to sunshine, wind, thunderstorms and whatever else Mother Nature throws at us!

We’ll see spectacular sunrises (if you are so inclined) and even better, sunsets. It never really gets dark during the summer, if that is when you visit, but the sky changes so beautifully, you wont forget one.

This area is, once again, only accessed by aircraft is game rich, remote and surely one of the most spectacularly beautiful places in the world. We promise you, to do everything to ensure that you have the experience of a lifetime.

When you are in Chisana, coming or going, or even only staying awhile, here at our ranch… the shower is always hot and full, the sauna waiting to be fired up for those that would like that, instead.
