Unique Alaska Accommodations
Looking for some place to stay while in Alaska, but don’t want to book a hotel? Why not try an unique Alaska accommodation instead?
First, we are going to suggest some “glamping” options, a glamorous camping experience if you will. 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. Imagine sleeping in a yurt (a circle reinforced tent-like structure), listening to the sounds of nature, on your very own island. That’s exactly what you’ll get at Orca Island Cabins about 9 miles southeast of Seward. Or how would you like to stay in a Dome, with clear curved windows, so that you can lay in bed and see the Aurora Borealis. There’s a spot outside of Fairbanks called Borealis Basecamp that can make that dream come true.
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.
A Unique Experience
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. So, if you’re feeling adventurous, you should try out a unique Alaska accommodation. You can do some luxury camping, or if you’d really prefer a real roof over your head a fun lodge is the spot for you!
