Ever changing the Aurora illuminates the night sky.

Jack London  " The Sundog Trail" 1905
"The northern lights flame in the sky, and the sun-dogs dance, and the air is filled with frost-dust." 
Aurora viewing in Bettles starts right outside our door. There are no mountains or hills that block the night sky in Bettles.
The Northern Lights are visible in Bettles, August 20 through April 10. We think the best time is September and March.
For those who want a "little more remoteness", we have a heated "Aurora Viewing" cabin that is completely free of any light pollution from the Village. The cabin is located 2 miles from the Lodge on a small hill over looking a mile long lake. There is a 360 degree view of the night sky from the cabin.

Bettles Lodge

Bettles, Alaska

A great place to vacation!

Bettles Lodge offers the ultimate experience for viewing the Northern Lights.   We are located at 66° 54' N Latitude putting Bettles directly under the the maximum viewing zone.

Why is the Maximum viewing zone of the Northern Lights important? 

Our location combined with the National Weather Service records indicating Bettles has the most "cloud free" days of any spot in Alaska, increases your chances of seeing the Aurora. Unlike other Alaskan destinations where you must pay to go to "some other spot" for good viewing, here you just step out the door!
