From USD$1,216 per person
View map

Bettles is located in one of the best places to see the Aurora Borealis in all of Alaska. Bettles officially has the most clear weather days in the entire state, which means more cloud free nights of opportunity to see the majestic Lights dance in the sky. Bettles is located directly under the Auroral Band, the highest aurora activity in the Northern hemisphere. For the best viewing of the Northern Lights come to the sunniest spot in Alaska!

Many photographers visit the Aurora Viewing cabin each winter. The rustic Aurora viewing cabin is 2.7 miles from the lodge on a mile long lake. The Lodge staff can arrange a drop off and pick up time at the cabin or if you like to ski or snowshoe one way and they will pick you up or drop you off. Enjoy hot chocolate, tea, or coffee in the warming cabin. There is absolutely no light pollution at the cabin and the lake offers a great 360 degree view of the night sky. See how the rest of Alaska used to be and only a small part still continue to live. Find some peace away from cell phone service as you imagine life 100 years ago.
