Luxury in the Far North sums it up! Our time at the Arrigetch Cabin and the Iniakuk Lodge was inspiring and rewarding on many levels. We had just the right combination of adventure on the river/hiking near the cabin combined with a stay at the lodge to round out the trip. Late summer in Alaska is beautiful - changing colors,...

Wow, what an Alaskan experience north of the Arctic Circle. It exceeded our expectations. We visited all 3 locations - Iniakuk Lodge, Caribou Cabin and Arrigetch-Alatna River Cabin. We were glad we had the chance to visit all 3. Pat Gaedeke's personalized email communications in helping to plan the trip and leading right up to our arrival were perfect! Pat's... More

This was our second visit to Iniakuk Lake Wilderness Lodge and our best holiday ever. Our first visit was in the summer of 2008 when we stayed in the Main Lodge and the Caribou Cabin with our three children aged 5-11. That was such a wonderful once in a lifetime experience that we decided to make it twice in a... More

The fact that all ten reviewers give Iniakuk Lodge five stars says it all. The setting is awe-inspiring. The Lodge is comfortable and suited to the setting - several log buildings with remarkable views, exceptional food and remarkable amenities given the remoteness of the area and the difficulties and expense of travel. Pat and her son John are perceptive hosts,... More

We had a splendid time at Iniakuk Lodge and Caribou Cabin. The remote setting makes it a very special place. Pat and John are the epitome of good hosts and made sure everything was perfect for us. Pat’s meals are delicious, the setting on Iniakuk Lake is beautiful and the guest suite cabin is private, well-appointed and comfortable with a... More

We enjoyed the best remote outdoor vacation we have ever experienced at Iniakuk Lake. First of all, the lodge is located in one of the most beautiful places in Alaska. The only buildings on the north end of this five mile long lake is the lodge. Only two other cabins are on this lake and they are on the other... More

This review is more specific to Caribou Cabin, rather than to the lodge itself. Caribou Cabin is a bit lighter on amenities than Iniakuk Lodge, but other than not having a chance to check out the lodge, I have no regrets about not staying there. The reality is that Caribou Cabin isn't about the cabin, it's about Alaska. The cabin... More

The tremendous fun and adventure begins if you check in for you flight with a 12 passenger plane from Fairbanks to Bettles. At the air field of Bettles you feel like in a movie from 1950 about tough aviation heroes and their passion for small planes. (Don`t miss the Visitor Center ) The floatplane that we took to Iniakuk Lake... More

The adventure began by hopping into a 4 person snow plane for our 2 hour flight to the Brooks Range (this my dream getting to sit up front, ready to take over at any stage!!). To say the scenery was stunning belies the beauty of the snow capped mountains and sheer remoteness. Our arrival was on a winter snow capped... More

Iniakuk Lodge and the remote Caribou Cabin in the Gates of the Arctic National Park in the Brooks Range were truly a “once in a lifetime” travel experience. At Iniakuk Lodge, we enjoyed reading on our balcony overlooking the lake and mountains while watching Common and Pacific Loons (first sighting for us of a Pacific Loon!). Pat’s meals were delicious... More
