GLAMPING: WHERE GLAMOUR
MEETS CAMPING

The Orca Island Cabins experience is often referred to in the adventure travel industry as an example of “glamping”, a shortcut for “glamorous camping”, where comfortable lodgings are nestled in a unique and beautiful wilderness setting. Our “glamping” accommodations in Alaska allow nature lovers the intimacy and privacy of appreciating true wilderness in total comfort.

All yurts at Orca Island Cabins have living and dining areas, fully-equipped kitchens, private bathrooms (and running water) and private decks for watching the sunset. Our yurts are aesthetically pleasing with lattice walls, a circular design and overhead domes that let in abundant natural light.

And not only are our yurts comfortable and stylish, they are also eco-friendly, utilizing solar power for electricity and propane for their cabin heaters, hot water heaters and kitchen ranges. Hey, we might as well call this “eco-glamping”! Our guests at Orca Island Cabins love to go kayaking, fishing, tide pooling, wildlife viewing, bird watching and beach combing or just sit back and relax. So, join the “eco-glamping” club and experience a very special wilderness setting in Alaska in safety, comfort and style.
