First of all, I think some of the reviews here are referring to a different glacier so I'll include both. Bear Glacier is visible from the highway near Stewart. It's on Hwy 37-A. The one referred to in previous reviews as going on a bumpy...More

Not to be confused with Bear Glacier in Alaska near Seward and the more impressive, close-by Salmon Glacier that is further in and more of a (rough) drive to get to. This Bear Glacier (near BC's Stewart - not Alaska's Seward) can be seen from...More

The scenery along this route is so gorgeous. I'm glad there's a spot to pull out safely with lots of room to take pictures of the Glacier. Was a bit cloudy on our drive in. Ideal view on a clear day.

Beautiful drive. The weather was mostly sunny and the animals were out to see, bear and a marten. I would highly recommend it to my friends and family.

Gotta love this drive. Maybe not in the winter.... lol Had a good look at the Glacier on a clear sunny day. Saw goats high up on the nearby slopes too and a bear enjoying himself along the way too.

Do you want to feel like one of the ancient explorers? The highlights of this part of the our 19,000 km road trip were glaciers, waterfalls, jade, bears and utter wilderness. The scenery was sensational as soon as we drove on the side road to...More
