I stayed here for two nights in July with two friends. We thoroughly enjoyed chatting with Bernie and Uta who shared with us their excitement of living with the nature. The family built and decorated each cabin with craftsman quality, elegance and attention to details. The bathroom is modern and clean. This is by far the best accommodation we had... More

If you're thinking of taking a trip Northern Alaska-- you owe it to yourself to stay at the Arctic Getaway Bed and Breakfast in Wiseman, Alaska. The cabins are adorable and comfortable; the town is quaint-- and the Northern lights beyond belief. Uta and Bernie Hickers are long time residents of the area and terrific hosts.

We enjoyed the hospitality and comfortable cabins at Arctic Getaway. The rooms and beds were comfortable. The bathroom modern and clean. Kitchen facilities allowed for preparing your own meals easily while we enjoyed a prepared breakfast each morning. We stayed here while attending a photography workshop specializing in the Northern Lights. We were fortunate to have 4 clear nights to... More

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
