Went there for the various activities held at the resort but did not stay there. I visited the aurora ice museum, and later on joined my family for the chena hot springs and the free geothermal tour. There were of course other activities such as horseback riding and souvenir shops to visit, and you can also stroll around the area... More

The hot springs it's pretty hot on the day I went, but I managed to find a spot it's right temperature, so I got to soak in the hot springs and enjoyed the beautiful flowers/view around the hot springs. This is my first time dipped into hot springs, it's kind of interesting to know that the hot springs has natural... More

The Chena hot springs were beautiful! I unfortunately did not bring my bathing suit, so I walked around to see the dog mushers in training & went horseback riding. Cassie was my tour guide & was great!

Nice drive up. Ice museum unique. Good food in restaurant. Had to stay in one of the "dorm rooms"(signature room) only rooms available..clean and bed was comfortable but very basic..nothing special. Don't know what Lodge rooms are like. In Aug. flowers blooming everywhere..very pretty.

What an unusual place! The ice hotel and bar was very beautiful. We were able to speak with the ice carvers and that was very interesting! If it weren't so cold we would have spent more time inside! The rest of the resort was just very unusual. The hot springs were nice but had a Sulphur smell. The greenhouses and... More

If you have some time to kill and you are in Fairbanks, this is a great evening. The people are super nice and accommodating. The hot spring is affordable. You are an hour away from town so it is a nice retreat. Massages are offered but are expensive.

We went to the hot springs and then we went to have lunch at the restaurant. The food was great and the service was amazing. There was also a wedding going on in the side room which was unique to see. I would defiantly recommend having lunch or dinner at the resort restaurant.

About 60 miles east from Fairbanks at the end of the paved road, there is a wooden gate, behind which is the parking lot, buildings and hotels. And signs to the pools. Following the signs, I found the green building where I bought the ticket (13usd). The lockers (25 cents), showers and dressing rooms are right behind the corner. There... More
