Adventure By Day, Comfort By Night
Enjoy staying at Bear Glacier in our comfortable 16′ yurts. This glamorous camping experience is sure to delight travelers of ages 16+ and all ability levels. Yurts are outfitted with vented propane heaters and a single queen-sized bed.
Bear Glacier is truly a remarkable place and anyone who stays here will leave with a greater appreciation for the natural splendor of our beautiful state! Relax in our tranquil Alaskan environment and enjoy glacier and iceberg viewing.
Guests are asked to pack lightly and bring only what they need for the night due to limited space in the helicopter. There is an outhouse available but no showers.
Each yurt rents for $1600 a night and has a queen bed. Our overnight stay includes 30 minutes of scenic helicopter flight time to and from our remote location.
All stays include appetizers, dinner, breakfast and helicopter transportation.

Incredible Back Country Experience with Amenities
Depart the Seward Airport and fly out Resurrection Bay to Tonsina Beach. From there, follow beautiful Spruce creek back into a mountainous valley. Keep a sharp eye out for an old mining camp. You'll be impressed when Cathedral Falls comes into view. This incredible cascading waterfall is a sight to behold. Your helicopter will then ascend through an alpine meadow. Views of Calisto glacier are possible later on in the summer when the snow has melted. Soar over beautiful mountain peaks as Bear Glacier comes into view. This expansive glacier is over 7 miles long and 2 miles wide. Fly low and slow up the face of the glacier and zoom through icebergs. On the flight back, fly over Fort McGilvray, an old World War 2 installation or through Paradise valley if the weather allows.
