Being far away from civilization, Bettles lodge sits right beneath the aurora ring with no light pollution, great staff and amazing food. Half of the visitors are return visitors during my stay. Fairbanks is for average tourists, this place is reserved for the adventurous.

We live in Anchorage Alaska and decided we really wanted to experience the northern lights first hand so we found Bettles Lodge online and made a weekend getaway plan. Boy was that a good decision! Eric and the crew at the lodge were fantastic. Very welcoming and easy to settle in with. They took great care of us and made... More

Spent three amazing days at the lodge this January. From the welcoming to the departure, the hospitality was superb. Eric went out of his way to provide all sorts of activities from the wood fired dry sauna (needed with minus 40 temps) to use of skis and snow shoes. He even took us on a drive down their ice road,... More

Awesome place! Me and a friend were on a plane camping trip this September and happened to stop in at the Bettles Lodge. We had gotten a tip the previous day that if you let them know you are coming for dinner in advance they can usually accommodate. The Lodge has its own frequency so we called in and asked... More

This is our second visit to Bettles, the first with new owners. The new owners are improving Bettles quite well. A great place to visit. The staff are very friendly and can not help you enough, this includes staying up all night to drive you around for aurora viewing!

My three friends and I just got back from staying at the Bettles Lodge for four nights and we had the most incredible time. Eric and Heather, the Lodge owners, went above and beyond to make sure that we had a great time. If we even suggested we wanted to do something, they made sure it happened. One day, we... More

The staff and owners are warm, friendly, and very helpful! They quickly feel like family. The pace is such that they can take the time to stop and have a conversation with you. The food is substantial, well prepared, and very, very tasty! The lodge is rustic, but remember, you are going to get away from the light pollution and... More

Was traveling through Bettles for the second time in 2 years on my way to hunt camp in the Brooks Range. Met Heather one evening in the Lodge while having dinner. Found out her and her husband were the new owners and simple enjoyed our conversation and just how they found Bettles Lodge. I highly recommend anyone looking for the... More

Went to Bettles Lodge in March for the sole purpose of seeing the Northern Lights on a Mother-Daughter vacation. I was a little nervous - My Mom is afraid of small planes (the only way to get to the lodge), she doesn't like communal bathrooms (room with private bath was unavailable), she doesn't do well in cold temperatures, let alone...
