Arrigetch Cabin

Arrigetch Cabin

Located 85 miles above the Arctic Circle, this is the perfect destination for a couple or family of four. This remote location is not for everyone, but it is perfect for those interested in a truly adventurous, independent wilderness experience knowing a warm cabin and hot meal await at the end of each day’s adventure.

The cabin was hand built with local logs on the edge of the National Wild and Scenic Alatna River. The murmuring of the Alatna River will lull you to sleep as a fire crackles in the wood stove. There are no indoor plumbing facilities – a nice privy is out back and wash water is heated in the cabin. Separate accommodations for your guide nearby ensure your safety and privacy. Each night your guide prepares home-cooked meals served family-style at the dining table beneath a large picture window offering a spectacular view of the river and mountains.

Reservations here are increasingly popular among couples wanting to combine comfort and privacy with their wilderness trip. Black and grizzly bears, wolves, caribou and moose roam the land, and if you don’t spot them from the dinner table, you will see their tracks along the riverbanks and sandbars.

The location is ideal for exploring the heart of the Brooks Range. Your guide will take you high into the surrounding mountains, deep into lush forests, or merely keep the fire stoked as you relax with a good book in the unbroken silence of Gates of the Arctic National Park. The local peaks take 2-3 hours to summit but offer stunning views within 20-30 minutes once above tree line. Bring your camera, plenty of film, watercolors and sketchbook.

The approach to the cabin is along the river. You’ll be flown ten miles upriver of the cabin, then spend a leisurely four hours floating down the Alatna River to the Arrigetch Peaks Cabin in inflatable canoes. The Alatna River is calm and peaceful and requires no paddling experience, you can relax and let the current do the work. Spend one or two nights at the cabin, then float downriver another five miles to a pick-up site for the return flight to Iniakuk Lake Lodge or Bettles depending on itineraries.
