While it's true you can't get here by driving, Wrangell is served by several efficient transportation options:
Alaska Marine Highways System: Coming north from the Lower 48, the best places to catch the ferry are Bellingham, WA and (if you'd like to save some money and have a little driving adventure) Prince Rupert, BC. Wrangell is the first stop after Ketchikan. The ride is about 700 miles long and takes 48 hrs. Alternately, if driving north catch us on your southbound leg by boarding the ferry in Haines or Skagway. We’re the stop after Petersburg.
Alaska Airlines: Wrangell is served by Alaska Airlines with Boeing 737 jets. Flight 65 is northbound from Seattle and departs around 7am daily arriving around 9:30am after a stop in Ketchikan. Flight 64 departs Anchorage at 12:45 and Juneau at 3:15 pm arriving in Wrangell at 5:15 after a stop in Petersburg. These flights are also available with their codeshare partners.
