This trip focuses on two great wintertime experiences: Northern Lights viewing and ice sculpting! Because Fairbanks is closer to the highly active area over the Arctic—and because winter nights here are longer than they are to the south—the light show is often much brighter and more reliable than over other areas of Alaska. And with three nights based out of the Chena Hot Springs Resort, you’ll have three different opportunities to watch “the show”—beautiful and mysterious curtains of color ranging from green to red to purple (intensity varies from night to night). Other trip highlights include visiting a sled dog kennel and learning all about mushing, visiting the Aurora Ice Museum (and Ice Bar!), and attending the World Ice Art Championships. At night, relax in natural hot springs or in front of a roaring fire.
*Note: The World Ice Art Championships are held during the first three weeks of March, annually.
