After we fly you from Fairbanks to Bettles, our float plane takes us to to a small lake 150 miles north of the Arctic Circle. From there, we paddle across the water to the source of the John River, which is known as one of the best floating-rivers in the Brooks Range. Each year, this river attracts 50 to 60 canoeists, making it one of the most popular backcountry routes in the Gates of the Arctic National Park. There is good reason for its popularity. The John River flows from mountainous highlands down to the lush valley-bottom, offering some of the most diverse ecology of all river drainages. If the water is clear, the John river also offers some of the best fishing in the region. The river trip ends at the abandoned village of Old Bettles. There, we leave our assistants to collect the gear, and hike to the new Bettles townsite. We will return to Fairbanks by air from Bettles.
