Fantastic way to end an Alaskan Trip

When we planned our Alaskan trip we found that we had ten hours to kill after checking out of our hotel. Our travel agent booked this trip. Glad she did. The Van came on time... read more

Chena Hot Springs Resort takes you back in time. The rustic looking buildings are decorated perfect for this wilderness resort. The food was good and the salads and vegetables were outstanding. The veggies are grown on the property and have a superior taste. The Hot Springs has a gravel bottom with some cooler water added in places. The indoor pool... More

First of all, Chena is not a luxury resort, or a quick tourist stop. It is a rustic place, with authentic mineral hot springs that smell like sulfur, and old rooms. Expect magnificent beauty of Northern lights in the winter, and spectacular flowers and wildlife in the summer on the 60 mile drive from Fairbanks. You don't get good cell... More

When we planned our Alaskan trip we found that we had ten hours to kill after checking out of our hotel. Our travel agent booked this trip. Glad she did. The Van came on time, our guide, Cori was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We are gardeners and spent most of the time going through the green houses.... More

We camped and enjoyed the hots springs. The cost of camping was only $20 per night. Although we didn't have any hook ups it had trees and we found a pretty quiet spot. They did offer a dump and water fill up station so that was nice. The hot springs were a good value at $13 for seniors. The pool... More

We went and spent the day at Chena Hot Springs and it was really fun. The pool and hot springs are so relaxing and then the Ice Museum was beautiful. They had so many carvings and the ice bar was unbelievable. I don't think I'd like to try to spend the night in it but it was very interesting place... More

I went during the winter when it was -24 out with my fiancée before she left back to the lower 48. It was a fantastic last minute trip. It was cool when you dipped your hair under the spurting water and it would frost over! And the snow on the outskirts of the hot spring looked gorgeous!

We rented a car in Fairbanks for the day and drove to the Hot Springs. We had a lovely drive through a rural area and even saw a Moose in a pool along side the rode. We took the ice museum tour which was OK but then took a dip in the Hot Springs. This was our first experience with... More

Absolutely loved our visit to Chena Hot Springs. I wish I lived close enough to go frequently. The rock lake pool is wonderful. The renewable energy and gardens tour was very interesting. The Ice Museum is unique; very beautiful sculptures. The 56 mile drive out the Chena Hot Springs Road was beautiful. This is a great place!

Hot springs are amazing! My husband and I had not been there in years. This is where we got engaged. It was even better this time. The restaurant was very good with a wonderful server! The hot apple pie with ice cream was fabulous to.

From Fairbanks it takes an hour to drive out there. We saw one moose and beautiful scenery, though. After you get there, it's about $15 per person for everything. They do have a lot of activites, but if you have a small family you are going to spend a few hundred dollars. Just to do the hot springs it was... More
