Bear Glacier Heli/Kayaking Adventures

4-5 Hour

The most scenic experience in the Kenai Fjords! Enjoy sightseeing as you travel to the Bear Glacier area by helicopter.

Kenai Fjords National Park at its most scenic!

Enjoy an Alaska sightseeing tour by helicopter as you travel to the Bear Glacier area. Paddle from our cache located on the ice-filled lake, and listen to the ice crystals releasing compressed air that was trapped due to the weight of snow over time. View the intense blue colored icebergs as they float in the lake, and watch as they sometimes roll due to the melting that occurs.

Spot the harbor seals that are always present as we paddle through the glacial lake on this one-of-a-kind kayaking tour. Bear Glacier is simply one of the most dynamic and interesting areas in the Kenai Fjords National Park. Bear Glacier Lake is the result of Bear Glacier retreating from the terminal moraine which actually was the beach at the ocean. This site is a photographer’s dream! This area is home to some of the largest black bears, goats, harbor seals, wolves, wolverines, and a multitude of other wildlife. This area is also abundant with wildflowers and Alaskan berries.

We enjoy lunch near the glacier depending on the weather at the time.

This lake are is generally cooler than that of Seward and we encourage everyone that visits Bear Glacier to prepare for a cooler, sometimes wet experience.

You experience:

  • Wildlife viewing
  • Unmatched flight seeing opportunities
  • Very flexible schedules for your convenience

You must call or e-mail Miller’s Landing post date of cancelled stay in order for us to research whether or not your site booked. Sites that were booked of course qualify for the 50% refund, sites that were not unfortunately do not.
    • In some situations a raincheck worth 75% of your reservation may be issued at the discretion of Miller’s Landing management instead of the applicable cancellation charge. If this option appeals to you please suggest this at the time of cancellation. Rainchecks are good for one year and may be used for activities, camping or lodging owned by Miller’s Landing or towards the cost of hats, tee shirts, gifts, etc. sold in the Miller’s Landing store or items sold online. For items purchased online the customer is expected to pay for the cost of postage. Rainchecks may NOT be transferred to another person.
    • A 100% refund will be issued for any activity that was cancelled due to weather by Miller’s Landing. Miller’s Landing reserves the right to determine weather cancellations. Rain does not constitute cancellations.

    Please note:  Miller’s Landing encourages only guaranteed prepaid reservations. Unlike many other states, Alaska has  a very short tourist season which can make it  difficult for us to rebook when we have cancellations without ample notice.  

    If you are booking a charter and lodging and your charter , water taxi or kayaking is cancelled due to weather you are still responsible for the lodging or camping reservations and the normal cancellation policy applies. All of our activities are possible during rain, so rain does not constitute a cancellation.  Miller’s Landing is not responsible for vehicle break downs, personal emergencies, flight delays,  health issues or other unforeseen hardships.  We will try very hard to work with you but the cancellation policy will need to be applied  if we cannot issue a raincheck or find an alternative solution that appeals to both parties.

    Please understand that Miller’s Landing also incurs a hefty financial merchant fee from our bank  for the cost of charging your credit card and again for the cost of refunding it, and there is also a cost involved for the time involved in processing and refunding your reservation in employee costs. Our goal when taking your reservation is to have a solid, guaranteed prepaid reservation. We strongly discourage the practice of making reservations without having an airline ticket or making tentative reservations.  Thank you for your understanding.
