Alaska is our home, and we’ve been committed to providing the highest quality trips from the beginning, over 40 years ago. We were among the first to offer raft explorations of the Kenai River into the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, and we pioneered small-group explorations from the protected areas of Kenai Fjords National Park and the Kenai Peninsula to Denali National Park and Preserve. We know all the areas we visit intimately. Today, we are proud to continue this tradition as Alaska’s leader in soft adventure trips. We believe smaller groups mean bigger experiences, better memories and more smiles.
Bear Paw Adventure’s four uniquely Alaska log vacation homes are situated on an original Alaska homestead site on the west side of the Kenai Peninsula near historic Anchor Point. The property has been kept as natural as possible providing habitat for wildlife such as moose and eagles that will be seen among the spruce, alders, willows and wildflowers. The buildings have been constructed primarily using simple hand tools from beetle-killed spruce taken off the property or nearby forests. Guests will enjoy the craftsmanship used in joining the logs and the unique log stairways, handrails and hand carvings. Be prepared to enjoy a sample of real Alaska with the comfort of warm and cozy energy-efficient heating, modern appliances, leather furniture and generous supplies. Located away from the busy commercial tourism centers, this is the place to get close to nature and enjoy real Alaska. Restaurants, shops, tour agencies and activities are just minutes away. Free on-site activities include wildlife viewing, horseshoes, beach volley ball, badminton, lawn croquet, miniature disc golf and picnicking. Bear Paw also provides free adventure planning and booking assistance for lodging guests and offers a variety of packages that can be customized to your interests.
Our passion is making our guests feel comfortable and connected in the northern Alaskan forest that we call home. We are a small-scale, family-run business focused on providing authentic experiences for our guests. We offer single or multi-day adventures dog sledding, skiing, and snowshoeing. We take only private groups of 1-4 people and customize the experience to each group’s desires to create unforgettable adventures.
We strive to live as close as we can to the place we’re in. We hunt, fish and grow much of our food for us and our dog family. We feed our guests healthy, homemade and local food. We do our best to use technology that doesn’t insulate us from a direct experience with our environment. On a trip with us, you will travel on trails we have cut, stay in tents we have sewn or cabins we have built and use gear that is made from and indigenous to the area we’re traveling in. We live in the place we guide, and we want to make sure that it is still just as beautiful and bountiful when we’re in the ground and future generations are tromping around.
Camp Denali & North Face Lodge’s longstanding family ownership is committed to preserving and refining the fundamental elements of our mission: excellence, community, and place. Your Camp Denali or North Face Lodge experience is personal. It is a unique blend of camaraderie among fellow adventurers and staff in a wilderness environment without parallel. At the core of our guest experience is a chance to live close to the land and, in exploring Denali’s wilderness, to learn about its ecology and history. More than facts and figures about Denali, we hope our guests return home with new ways of seeing, understanding, and taking care of the natural world in their own backyards. In addition, we hope that our continual improvements to the environmental sustainability of our operation will provide an opportunity for our guests, staff, and other small business owners in Alaska to learn about viable alternatives to the status quo. For us, providing excellent hospitality is not about attending to every luxury or amenity; instead we strive to ensure our guests’ comfort, meet their needs, and surpass their expectations. At Camp Denali and North Face Lodge you are welcomed as personal houseguests into our community of 50 staff. Our summertime staff live, work, and play together. Maintaining a healthy, supportive community is a major part of our daily work.
