Chena Hot Springs + Ice Museum: Treat yourself to a relaxing sightseeing day or evening on your Alaska vacation.
Your Chena Hot Springs and Ice Museum Tour begins right at your Fairbanks accommodation, so you don’t need to plan how to get to us and you will save additional taxi costs. Only 60 miles from Fairbanks, this world renowned resort offers a time of rest and relaxation in the historical location discovered by natives and early miners.
Enjoy the mineral hot springs in a beautiful natural setting. The world’s largest year-round ice museum is your first stop at Chena Resort. Created from over 1,000 tons of ice and snow the ice museum contains spectacular ice carvings for your enjoyment. Along the way we almost always spot Moose.
