Welcome to Bettles Lodge!

Bettles is located 35 miles north of the Arctic Circle in one of the last true pristine wilderness areas in the world. The small village of Bettles resides on the banks of the Koyukuk River, in the foothills of the Brooks Range - the northernmost mountain range in North America.  It is known as the "jumping off" point of adventure into the Brooks Mountain Range, Gates of the Arctic National Park & Preserve, Noatak National Preserve, and Kobuk Valley National Park.  Bettles Lodge and Air Service offers complete trip packages as well as those individual services you may require. We offer unguided or guided wilderness trips including fishing, backpacking, canoe & rafting, photography and flight-seeing. In the winter, come enjoy the Northern Lights viewing, dog mushing and cross country skiing. There are no limits to the possibilities that await you in the Last Frontier.
