Despite having a small population, Seward is one of Alaska’s oldest towns. The name itself comes from William H. Seward, who was the American statesman responsible for negotiating the purchase of Alaska from Russia. The city is located on the water and is also home to a train terminus, so tourism thrives in the city for people looking to fish, people coming from cruises, and people just looking to explore some Alaskan wilderness. Must-visit attractions include Alaska SeaLife Center, the picturesque Seward Boat Harbor, and the nearby Bear Lake. Skip the hotels and stay somewhere more immersed in nature. Check out these top yurts in Seward, Alaska.
Overlooking the beautiful Resurrection Bay, this yurt accommodation is for the adventurous travelers out there. The yurt is relatively remote so make sure to come packed with what you need! The accommodation has several amenities included such as a little kitchenette space with a stove, cookery, and essentials. Guests will have access to the cove nearby where you can kayak or hike the trails. Electricity is not available on-site but there is a power generator and several battery-powered flashlights in case you need to get around at night.

This brand new yurt is one of the biggest ones around and seems more like a small cabin than a traditional yurt. Sleeping up to six people, the yurt has a ground floor space as well as a loft area accessible by a small set of stairs. There are two queen beds as well as a full bathroom and a kitchenette space. There are plenty of windows and even a skylight so you can watch the stars at night and get plenty of sun during the day.
