Not exactly glamping on a glacier, but spending the night on Juneau Icefiels was an incredible first. (Mendenhall Glacier, southeast Alaska)

First thing’s first

A little prep goes a long way: Sounds obvious, but before disappearing into the hinterlands, tell someone where you’re headed, determine what’s nearby (firewood, water and local regulations) and gauge the distance to civilization on a detailed map. Uber-remote camping may warrant investing in a satellite communicator to send and receive texts with GPS coordinates worldwide (e.g. inReach).

Tent TLC: Routinely protect your shelter with a waterproofing spray and air it out well after heavy rainfall to avoid moisture damage. Pack spare lanyard/guy lies, snow stakes and a repair kit.
