Enjoy 24-hours of daylight during the summer season June through August, or come up in March and run your own team of Alaskan huskies under the blazing northern lights. This is an Alaskan getaway like no other. Travel links: By Bush prop plane two hours from Fairbanks, Alaska. Utilities: 24-hour solar-powered electricity, running water, satellite internet and valet dog team parking. All meals are home cooked and served at a communal dining table near the crackling wood stove. Finish off your day of hiking in the range with a hot sauna and dive into Iniakuk Lake or roll in the snow after a day of mushing into Gates of the Arctic National Park. Suggestions: Mush your own team on a multi-day expedition into Gates of the Arctic National Park in March (www.brooksrangewintertours.com) or come watch caribou migrate across the tundra from the comfort of the front porch in August at one of Iniakuk Lodge’s private cabins.
