Greetings from Wiseman, Alaska

Berni and Uta Hicker

We’re your hosts, Berni and Uta Hicker, longtime residents of Wiseman. We enjoy our life in this remote and beautiful region of Alaska, nestled among the foothills of the rugged Brooks Range mountains.

Our homestead or do-it-yourself lifestyle includes hunting for meat, berry picking, gardening, woodcutting, caring for our sled dogs, and the many varied aspects involved in living a rural lifestyle. Each season brings it’s own beauty and demands the corresponding chores to sustain life north of the Arctic Circle. We look forward to sharing our home and lifestyle with you.
