Chena Hot Springs Resort

Welcome to Alaska’s only year round 100+ year old hot springs resort! Chena Hot Springs Resort is the most accessible and developed hot spring resort in Alaska’s Interior. Chena Hot Springs was discovered in August 1905 and became famous for curing crippled prospectors of their aches and pains.

Today, many local, state, national and international visitors enjoy Chena’s natural outdoor hot springs, adult rock lake (ages 18+) or indoor family pool.

Lodging, Dinning, Bar, and Gift Shop are available.

Summer activities include: dog cart rides, dog kennel tours, ATV tours,  bike rentals, horseback tours, guided rafting, and hiking.

Winter activities include: Aurora viewing, dogsled rides, dog kennel tours, Chena dog mushing school, snow coach tours, snow machine tours, ski, snowshoe, and skate rentals

Year-around activities include: hot springs, swimming, flightseeing, therapeutical massage, and Ice Museum.

Chena Hot Springs Resort is home to the world’s largest year-round ice museum in the world, the Aurora Ice Museum! It was completed in January 2005 and stays a cool 20 degrees Fahrenheit inside year round. Keeping the museum icy cold in the heat of summer comes from the patented absorption chiller, the first of its kind in the world used for this purpose!
