Bear Glacier is one of the longest glaciers in the Kenai Fjords National Park. The Bear Glacier Tour is a 30-minute flight with one of the best pilots in Seward, Alaska. The Glacial ice descends in a long sweeping highway of ice to the sea and then ends at a large glacial vivid blue lake filled with icebergs up to 100 ft. High. The lake is separated from the Gulf of Alaska by a long beach where local surfers frolic, as much as frolicking is possible in heavy wetsuits and 50-degree water! The flight tour takes in the landscape all around Bear Glacier before working its way over the edge of the Harding Icefield.
