  1. a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping.
Glamping is becoming more and more popular as folks take their favorite forms of rest and relaxation and incorporate them into their outdoor experience. Glamping allows you to enjoy all the creature comforts and a wealth of adventure and exploration too. Picture yourself looking out the front door of your tentalow (a reinforced canvas tent-like structure) and seeing Matanuska Glacier with a beautiful Alaskan backdrop. That’s what it’s like with Alpenglow Luxury Camping. And, many glamping experiences come with gourmet dining experiences and an intimate connection with the outdoors.
Glamping in Alaska can have you situated close to the best fishing streams, camped out on Orca Island overlooking the ocean, or even in your own private igloo watching the Aurora Borealis in Fairbanks. There are many different choices and a great unique accommodation to explore.

Exclusive & Secluded

Lodges and Cabins

If you prefer a little more structure than yurts, tentalows, and domes offer, you should consider a lodge! If you’ve been dying to see a bear Brooks Lodge could be the place for you. Right next to Brooks River Falls. You can spot them straight from the lodge, or they offer bear-viewing trips inside Katmai National Park. You could also try Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge; the place Alaskan wilderness dreams are made of. Secluded on Fox Island, your stay here will feel like you are on a whole other planet. Stay in your own waterfront cabin, on a pebble beach watching the occasional whale or sea lion, with Resurrection Bay as your backdrop. Historic lodges like Sheep Mountain, offer remodeled log cabins to stay in with easy access to nearby recreation, in both the summer and winter.

Overnight on a Glacier

If none of those are hitting all the boxes of a unique accommodation then maybe consider an overnight glacier experience on the Matanuska Glacier. This trip flies you far away from the crowds to your own private camp, on the ice! A professional team will take you ice climbing and offer you gourmet food options in a luxury setting. A double walled canvas tent becomes your private luxury glacier oasis. The ride out in the helicopter is spectacular and the views from the ice offer some of the best glacier features you can experience. This unique accommodation is perfect for small groups, romantic getaways, and even an elopement.
