Description

Discover the best of interior Alaska with a guided excursion to the splendid Chena Hot Springs Resort with an opportunity to relax in the invigorating waters. Venture to the Aurora Ice Museum to appreciate the works of art from resident ice artists.

Travel from Fairbanks to the Chena Hot Springs Resort and start your tour at the Aurora Ice Museum. Marvel at the ice sculptures, including a huge tower and jousting knights, crafted by local artists. If you need to refuel, stop in at the restaurant for a bite of wild Alaskan salmon and locally grown vegetables. (meal not included in price)

The next stop on the trip takes you to soothing waters where you can soak in the notable Chena Hot Springs, discovered by gold mining brothers in 1905. You can opt to relax in the resort's hot tub, the pool or outdoor Rock Lake.

Hangout in the Activity Center or lounge around until you head to the Aurorium for a chance to witness the unforgettable Aurora Borealis.

!! Note, we cannot guarantee the Northern Lights sighting. It is a natural phenomena and is difficult to predict and cannot be controlled by anyone. !!

Went on the Hot Springs/Aurora tour and had a great time. Had Ken as our tour guide and he was awesome! He was on time and was a great driver. He was super knowledgeable and answered every question. He did a great job making sure we all had everything we needed. He helped to break the ice between the different groups on the tour and made us feel like one cohesive group. If you can request Ken as your guide, you should do it! The tour itself was great! If you’re looking for a combination of Aurora hunting and relaxation, then this is the way to go!

It was cool and our guide Dave was amazing! Unfortunately we didn’t see lights but I still had a good time.

Such a great experience. Suzy, our guide/driver/photographer was outstanding. She was enthusiastic and entertaining. The Chena hot springs was wonderful and fun. We felt very lucky to have experienced the northern lights as the day was cloudy and the aurora index was low but luck and a great guide let us check another item off our bucket list. Many thanks!
