Bettles Lodge is located in one of the best places in Alaska to see the Aurora Borealis. Bettles has officially the most clear weather days in the state, meaning more cloud free nights and more opportunities to see the majestic lights dance in the sky. Located directly under the Auroral Band, Bettles has the highest aurora activity in the Northern hemisphere. The rustic Aurora viewing cabin is situated two miles from the lodge on a mile long lake. You can be dropped off and picked up, or the more adventurous can choose to ski or snowshoe the short journey, before enjoying hot chocolate, tea, or coffee in the warming cabin.

DAY 01
Choose to depart Fairbanks early morning or early afternoon on your flight to Bettles. The one hour flight takes you over the Yukon River and above the Arctic Circle. On arrival you are transferred to Bettles Lodge, where you are based for the next two nights.

DAY 02
Outdoor Adventure and Aurora Viewing
Your day starts with a guided tour around the village of Bettles. Isolated for most of the year, with only an ice road for two months of the winter, this is a self-sufficient town offering absolute serenity in the wilderness. Choose to take a guided snow shoe excursion or go cross country skiing, both included in your package, or opt for a dog sled voyage to Koyukuk River, go ice fishing or flightseeing, all of which can be arranged.
