We went to Bettles with friends and had one of the best experiences ever. We took the train from Anchorage to Fairbanks which was incredibly scenic - saw Mt. Denali very clearly as well as other beautiful mountains and amazing animals. Flew on Warbelows to...更多
My husband and I travel quite a bit, have been to beautiful Mediterranean areas, Germany, Jamaica, etc etc. Our 4 day vacation at the Bettles beats all of them. The natural beauty of the place is unreal and the lodge is peaceful and rustic-comfortable. Eric,...更多

I have been reading through all the reviews of Bettle's Lodge and thought you might offer some additional insight as my wife and I are looking at a visit this Sep.
We are looking at visiting either before or after a Princess land tour in Sep. If we visit prior to the tour we were looking at around 5-7 Sep and if we visit after it would be around 20-22 Sep. For anyone who has been there in the Sep timeframe I would be interested in thoughts about earlier vs later in the month, even though I realize the wx can vary greatly in any given month.
One other thing we are debating is whether to spend 3 or 4 nights - any thoughts about whether we would have plenty to do if we spend 4 nights vs just 3. I realize they offer numerous flying trips or fishing trips at an extra cost but didn't know if there was plenty to do in the Bettles area itself even if we didn't take advantage of those trips that cost extra.
Any other tips anyone could offer that might help two 64 year old geezers plan for this undoubtedly once in our lifetime trip would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much for your time!

We were at Bettles Lodge in December--we went specifically to see the Northern Lights. It was cold (-20 to -30 degrees) and snowy. Eric and Heather are awesome. Eric gave us a tour of Bettles--took about an hour and it was very interesting. We hiked around the frozen area. We went to the Gates of the Arctic Visitor Center--right across from Bettles Lodge. That was VERY interesting. I would suggest later if you want to see the Northern Lights. Our main purpose of being there in December was to see the Northern Lights. So, because we were up for most of the night, we took it easy in the day. There is no guarantee, but the darker the better. Bettles is a small town--about 13 people live there. You are out in the "bush". Check on any side trips you are thinking about from Bettles--make sure they are still doing the trips in September. Bettles is a fly in town--that is the only way you can get in and out. Chat with Eric he will guide you in the right direction.
What basic amenities are provided if any? Hair dryer? Shampoo? Conditioner? Soap? Towels?

We stayed in the Aurora Lodge (on the property of Bettles lodge and part of the same complex) and in our room there was a jacuzzi, soap, plenty pf towels, robes, slippers, shampoo, cream rinse, hairdryer. The Aurora Lodge has its own living room complete with TV and videos to watch, coffee, puzzles and games. Its a short walk to Bettles Lodge where meals and cocktails are served. We really enjoyed our stay.
