Pair aurora borealis with spa treatments and you get a northern lights experience like no other. This night trip from Fairbanks takes you to Chena Hot Springs Resort for an exciting but relaxing array of activities. Discover eye-popping sculptures at the on-site Aurora Ice Museum, and then unwind in the resort’s legendary mineral water baths. When the conditions are right, a guide takes your small group to the best locations to watch for the ethereal northern lights, with warm beverages in hand.
During your visit to Alaska, view the Northern Lights from the comfort and warmth of an Aurora Lodge. With pickup from your hotel in Fairbanks, you’ll ride in a climate-controlled vehicle and enjoy commentary from your guide and a warm spot to wait for "Lady Aurora" to light up the sky. Since this is a small-group tour, you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions, too.
Head out of Fairbanks and away from the light pollution of the city for the chance to glimpse the magic of the Northern Lights at a wilderness lodge. In warmth and comfort, sip on a mug of hot chocolate or stay awake with coffee as you take in this enchanting far-north spectacle. The aurora viewing tour lasts about 6 hours.
Get picked up from your hotel in Fairbanks and head out of the city. Escape the city light pollution as you make your way to our secluded lodge. Our guide will bring you back to your hotel around three o’clock in the morning. Watch for shooting stars and chat with your guide about the science behind the Aurora Borealis. Set up your camera equipment to take photos of the aurora as it dances.
Discover Alaska’s natural hot springs and amazing ice sculptures on a full-day tour to Chena Hot Springs from Fairbanks. Enjoy a scenic 60-mile (95-km) drive from your Fairbanks hotel to Chena Hot Springs, where you can soak in the large outdoor pool of this legendary resort. You can also take a tour that showcases how Chena Hot Springs makes use of geothermal energy to power the resort, and check out the sculptures in the Aurora Ice Museum.
Less than an hour from the city of Fairbanks, Borealis Basecamp is not a destination, it is an experience. Stay overnight in exclusive igloos similar to those utilized by polar expeditions and research stations. Crafted exclusively to maximize Northern Lights viewing and comfort, these domes are intimate retreats in the midst of an Alaska winter. Clear, curved windows stretch 16 feet across each dome roof, allow you to lie in bed and view the dancing northern lights and scenery outdoors without leaving your cozy nest.
Is your group looking for a way to reach Chena Hot Springs Resort, 60 miles east of Fairbanks? Airlink Alaska can transport groups of any size to and from the hot springs. Our round-trip tour departs at 10 a.m. and returns at 5:00 p.m. Your group will have enough time to swim or soak in the hot springs, explore the year-round ice museum and even attend the free geothermal tour at 2 p.m.
The trip takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes each way. There is an excellent chance to see moose along the Chena Hot Springs road leading to the resort. Our chartered van is a great way to get two or three birds with one stone: see a moose, bathe in the therapeutic hot springs and see the northern lights (during the winter).
See the historical Fairbanks highlights without waiting around for other travelers during this private full-day tour that’s ideal for first-time visitors and those on a time budget. Learn more about each destination than you likely would alone, get up close and personal with caribou and muskox, and enjoy free time to learn about Alaskan history at the University of Alaska Museum of the North.
