Ice Alaska Location
Chena Hot Springs
56.5 miles northeast of Fairbanks, is the Chena Hot Springs Resort. This premier attraction was founded in 1905 and is famous for its natural hot springs which provide a welcome warm relief from the harsh cold temperatures of Alaska.
It is home of the world famous “Aurora Bar & Ice Museum” where you can have an Appletini cocktail in a glass made of ice, whilst sitting on a stool made of ice, at a bar made of ice, being surrounded by some amazing sculptures made of ice – truly amazing !
With over 80x winter accommodation options (& more in summer), winter outdoors activity tours and their outstanding restaurant that boasts partial “paddock-to-plate” principles, it’s worth the trip out to see for the day or to stay a night or 2 and spoil yourselves.
