Fabulous time at the Bettles Lodge this week. Extremely friendly and helpful, great food and well organised outdoor activities / support. Included rental of clothing for very cold weather.
Would highly recommend staying there during the winter. We are thinking about returning during the summer and using the lodge as a stepping off point for the National Park.
