1. Fairbanks: Northern Lights and Chena Hot Springs Tour
Start your evening off with a guided tour of the amazing sculptures and carvings at the Fairbanks Ice Museum. See champion ice carvers in action. Then, sit back and relax as you are transported the 60 scenic miles to the Chena Hot Springs Resort. Enjoy a meal at the restaurant that offers locally cultivated vegetables and wild caught Alaskan salmon (not included in price and dining is optional). Afterward, soak in the Chena Hot Springs' legendary healing mineral waters. Take a short stroll outside to watch the beautiful and breathtaking Aurora Borealis dance overhead in the dark nights (appearance of northern lights not guaranteed). The activity center is a great location to warm up while waiting for the northern lights. There will be plenty of time for photography to ensure you will not forget this experience. At the end of the night, you will regroup and head back to Fairbanks. If the lights are out, your guide may make multiple stops on the way back to let you view the lights. Approximate return time to hotels is between 2am and 3am, depending on location.
