Chena Hot Springs Resort Review

People come in droves to soak in the hot springs—in the hot tubs, the indoor family swimming pool, or the outdoor natural-rock lake (ages 18-plus). Just as many, if not more, flock to see the magnificent aurora that so often lights up in the skies above the resort. Miles from the nearest town, in winter you can snowmobile, dogsled, and take a 4½-mi snow-coach tour to a hilltop yurt with a 360-degree panorama. Summer activities include therapeutic massages, sled-dog cart rides, horseback riding, ice-sculpting classes, and guided ATV tours. Don't miss the world's only year-round Aurora Ice Museum complete with an ice bar, ice bedrooms, and a multitude of ice carvings created by world-class carvers. Tours of the Ice Museum are $15. There are also sports-equipment rentals, camping sites, and yurts ($65 and up) for rent.
