Tour description provided by Viator

Join us for an evening of adventure 225 miles north to the isolated community of Bettles, Alaska. Enjoy about 75 minutes of scenic flight time each way until you land at the remote airstrip in the Arctic Circle. We will explore the town of Bettles, located 35 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Don't miss your chance to experience the Alaskan lifestyle “off the grid.” Take off time is 5:00 pm with a return to your Denali area hotel around 9:30pm.
Located 35 miles north of the Arctic Circle in the foothills of the Brooks Range, Bettles was founded during Alaska’s last great gold rush in 1898, then grew into a strategic aviation hub during WWII. Now home to just a dozen year-round residents, Bettles is rich with history and surrounded by one of the last pristine wilderness areas in America. Every flight is fully interactive with voice activated headsets and large windows. Along the route there are lots of sight-seeing opportunities. Flown by expert Alaskan Bush Pilots. The historic Bettles Lodge serves amazing dinners and offers guided tours of the town and the neighboring native village of Evansville. While visiting the native village inside the Arctic Circle, take a tour of the village and choose between extra time to explore or a dinner at the historic lodge.
