If you hope to see the Northern Lights this winter, you may want to start making your plans ASAP – the city of Fairbanks is often cited as one the very best destinations to see them in the United States, but of course, to get the best glimpse, you’ll need to get away from city lights and into the vast wilderness.
At Chena Hot Springs Resort, guests can even enjoy watching the brilliant natural display from the warmth of the hot springs. The resort also alerts guests when the lights appear via an aurora alarm service and is home to the Aurora Ice Museum too.
