How do you feel about minus 60 degree weather?

Be aware: I went in January - so minus 60 windchill is insane. Went with a group of 11 to see the Northern Lights, and stayed at Chena Hot Springs Resort. You are captive, and it... read more

Be aware: I went in January - so minus 60 windchill is insane. Went with a group of 11 to see the Northern Lights, and stayed at Chena Hot Springs Resort. You are captive, and it is slightly rustic - but charming. All meals are eaten in the lodge dining room, and they are good. The rooms are very nice,... More

Even our tour guide indicated the management doesn't really care. The cafe just has frozen food you can microwave. The restaurant was very good tho as was bartendress and her drinks. The springs were very dangerous to enter, a long slippery walk. Very dark, hotspots where volcano heat was piped in. Not recommended unless u just wanna say you've been... More

This is the best experience that hotel have to offer. It's free and you can dive in as many times as you want in the hotel stay. They gave you free tickets with hotel check in. When you give them a ticket, they provide you a towel. You have to pay for a locker room. It's only 25 cents, not... More

Short ride outside of Fairbanks Alaska. On the way we had a chance to stop off and see the pipeline running through Fairbanks. The ride to the he hot Springs is very scenic, you can view the wild life. Good roads leading to the springs. Hotel on grounds, R.V. parking or camp sites. We chose to stay in the hotel.... More

We highly recommend Chema hot spring for the spring itself. It is truly a wonderful experience in the winter. The waters are very clear with very little sulphur smell and the temperature is perfect. While we were there we had a good dinner in the restaurant (not a great dinner). We did not stay in the hotel itself because it... More

We visited here as two couples. Upon check in, I asked if I could use the phone to let someone know I had arrived safely. It was treacherous out and I had never driven the road alone before. I was told I had to use the phone in the room. The phone in the room didn't work. I asked if... More

What an amazing experience we had here in Chena hot spring resort. We did the tour at the Ice museum first and then we did the hot spring last which is the best idea. We didnt book in one of their places so its better if you do the hot spring last. They have indoor pool which is good for... More

We drove up and visited the ice museum, wandered over to the reindeer, went in the hot springs and then visited their restaurant on our single day up there. I had originally been looking to stay here overnight but so glad we didn't. It is a resort out in the middle of nowhere so while it is a nice drive... More

Had a very great time out at Chena Hot Springs last night. We stayed in the cabins they were prefect, truly a taste of rustic Alaska life with some of the comforts of home. Would suggest to everyone if you want a great experience call and reserve a cabin for a overnight or a long weekend
