Entering the village of Wiseman is like entering in a museum. It feels like time stoot still here. Old machinery, some old cars, and abandoned cottages , this is the setting of our stay here in this magical place . The Arctic Getaway B&B, called Igloo#8, is a fantistic place to stay. Owners Bernie and Uta are the perfect hosts.... More

On the trip to Deadhorse we decide to stay overnight in the middle of the Dalton. After checking out all the - limited - options we decided go for the Arctic Getaway and we were super happy about the selection. The owners - who came from Germany several years ago - are very nice, service oriented and willing to share... More

We stayed twice on our trip up north to Prudhoe bay. The Aurora cabin reminded me of a Swiss chalet with nice wood inside and comfy! This is the place to stay versus the inductrial truck stop hotels in Coldfoot nearby! Enjoyed playing in the stream nearby with my sons. P&Y California

We really enjoyed our stay at the Artic Getaway. The daily breakfast was really good and you can't beat the location for viewing the northern lights. The cabin was very comfortable and well stocked. The family owners were very entertaining. Definitely recommend.

Article Getaway is a magical place in Wiseman, 70 miles north of the Arctic circle. Your Hosts are Bernie and Uta, and their 2 children, Leo and Julia. They are absolutely marvelous hosts. The cabins are cozy and appealing and well kept...pristine. Nice beds, down comforters, nice kitchenettes. Very nice shared baths, with hot shower. Uta makes the best sourdough... More

I loved every minute of this trip. The entire experience of heading out on the Dalton Highway to be met by Uta and shown into the cabin was perfect. I've never felt both so isolated and so comfortable at the same time. I loved just sitting by the fire and reading during the day and heading out for the aurora... More

An excellent place to stay on the way to or from Deadhorse. Very secluded, quiet and definitely off the grid. We stayed in Wolverine cabin with shared bath. Plenty of hot water and great down duvets. Delicious sourdough pancakes for breakfast. Delightful hosts

The breakfasts were excellent, Uta ever gave us her sourdough pancake recipe, which we tried since we have been home, great... More

After stopping in Coldfoot for the required tank of gas that cost an arm and a leg, we were very glad we didn't stay in Coldfoot (basically a truck stop). To get to Wiseman, you actually turn off the Dalton Highway, go across a bridge over the river and drive about 3 miles to Wiseman. We stayed in the Wolverine... More

I was recently there as a part of a photography workshop group. I admit I am a city girl but i was really happy staying this place. Shared a cabin with a fellow participant. The place has our basic comfort and really a nice place to stay to "get away from it all." I hope to come back. Bernie and... More
