Chena Hot Springs Resort & Aurora

The Ultimate Chena Hot Springs Experience: 

Two person minimum. Pickup at your location by 5pm and head to Chena Hot Springs. Once at the resort, your tour guide will direct you to the activity center to hand out your ice museum tickets and hot springs passes. The last ice museum tour is at 7pm. Your guide will be by your side as there may be a lot of people. Check out the ice carvings and purchase a appletinni in an ice glass. The Ice Museum tour is about 45 minutes. After the museum, head over to the 104 degree hot springs and soak up until 11:45pm. Bring your towel and sandals! While you soak, your guide heads over to the activity center and starts monitoring the Aurora activity and the weather. While you enjoy the hot springs, if Aurora is spotted, your guide will inform you and you can head out to the vehicle – Enjoy the show! Your guide will visit the most weather appropriate viewing spots. If there is bad weather, we may leave earlier to see if there are any openings on the way back to Fairbanks.

Aurora Viewing or Chase

View the Aurora in Comfort and Style:

Two person minimum. Pick up at local hotel around 10pm or as Aurora comes out. If you opt for a chase, we search for the best spots to view and enjoy. If a viewing, we go to locations specifically selected for the best chance to see the Aurora.

*The Aurora is Natural. There is no guarantee it will show or when it will start. The aurora may be bright, may be gray and weak, or may not show up at all. Then our earth weather plays a roll on whether we have a chance to see the Aurora. **Guests are paying for the effort. There are no discounts or money back guarantees if guests don’t see the Aurora. Tours on average are from 10p-3a. The tour can be extended if an Aurora show is happening
