Experience this essential aspect of Alaska on a fun, exciting, and unique adventure that drops you into a world unlike any other – Alaska in winter. Two of Alaska’s most stellar winter destinations await!
Fly into Fairbanks, and venture straight to the heart of the “Aurora Bubble.” Chena Hot Springs has it all – beginning with naturally-fed hot springs pools to warm you up when you need it most! An abundance of activities are yours for the taking by day – choose from ice skating, snowshoeing, horse-drawn sleigh rides, dog sledding, snowmobiling, and more. Each night, take the opportunity to head out in a comfortable over-snow vehicle to watch for the rippling, shimmering ribbons of fluorescent blues, greens, and reds in the night sky – also known as the Aurora Borealis.
Next stop – Alyeska! Board a quick flight from Fairbanks to Anchorage, then sit back and enjoy a beautiful drive along Turnagain Arm to the charming wintry enclave of Alyeska. Settle in to resort accommodations, a base for days of snowy fun in the great outdoors! A helicopter tour of Prince William Sound with a glacier landing puts this trip over the top, while opportunities to ski and snowshoe keep you grounded, and elated.
Alaska in winter – Magical!
