We were worried we might not be rewarded after the 66-mile drive out to Chena Hot Springs, but we were not disappointed. The spring totally hit the spot! Chena is a little more costly than the other hot springs we've visited ($15 pp), but it's a lovely resort with lots of great ways to spend the day, including touring the... More

We've gone a few times and it is pretty cool to be I the hot springs gs when it's negative degrees outside and snowing around you. There was also a regular indoor pool for my kids who we didn't want to go in the hot springs. Good visit overall and we will do it again for sure.

My wife and I rented a car and drove the 65 miles to the spa. Towel and admission cost $15 each and the car rented from Artic cost another $88. The local tour costs $259 per person. On your own it's worth it, with the tour no.

We spent most of our time in the outside pool, which was wonderful. It was large, with a stream of water peoples used for a neck massage. The water was 106 degrees, which was just right. The locker room had been refurbished since my last visit. There were flowers everywhere. It was a fun day out and about.

"5/6 of our energy needs are provided by our geothermal generators." Thermal pipes run through all buildings and insulated hot houses. They grow all their tomatoes, lettuce and herbs. Chickens in thermal coops provide all their eggs. Next season, a goat herd will deliver cheese & milk. It's a fascinating introduction to alternative energy. The on site restaurant/bar is above...

Definitely a great attraction for outdoor enthusiasts, but other fun stuff to do as well. Enjoy the hot springs with a backdrop of mountain range, as well as a nice restaurant. The ice museum is amazing to check out and you can enjoy a martini at the ice bar.

Tours the ice museum - interesting. The ice martini was different but a bit pricey. Toured the gardens and power plant - very interesting. Hot spring was good as was the indoor pool. Lunch was very good and nice little bar area too.

We took a ride to the hot springs from Fairbanks on our visit to Alaska from PA and got there and was unprepared. My son wanted to go in the pool but had no swim trunks. We were pleased to find out we could rent a towel and swim trunks. Very nice touch! I wish he could have gone in... More

My wife and I made the short drive on to Chena Hot Springs after a beautiful hike to Angel Rocks. While we enjoyed the hot soak, there is only one hot pool and a chlorinated conventional swimming pool of cooler water. There is not much else to recommend and we didn't think it would warrant a drive from Fairbanks, in... More
