Flying out to Bear glacier is always a real treat. One of the best parts of our scenic flights is that they show an unprecedented and intimate view of Kenai Fjords National Park. The ever shifting nature of this scenery continually astounds us.
Landing at Bear is different each time we go there. The lagoon that bear glacier terminates in prevents the large calving pieces of ice from escaping. What results are enormous icebergs that have been trapped. They shift around due to weather and wind. We name the different icebergs and watch as they evolve.
The procession of wild flowers also continually changes what we see. This time of year we are blessed with blooming fire weed and lupine as well as a myriad of number other beautiful blossoms that liven up the shoreline.
We love Bear Glacier and flights there are only $309 per person. It’s well worth the incredible views and calming scenery.
