In Fairbanks, AK, the sun never goes down in the summer and barely comes up in the winter. Fortunately, light or dark, warm or 40 below, it’s always a good time to visit Chena Hot Springs.
Located an hour northeast of downtown Fairbanks, Chena Hot Springs offers much more than its infamous boulder-ringed hot spring pool. This hot spring resort has ATV rentals, cabins and a campground, dog sled rides, a restaurant/bar, and an ice museum. There is space here for the comforts of home or to live on the wild side. Opt for a massage followed by happy hour at the bar or cook your own food at the all-night campfire in the adjacent campground. Up to you.
