Has Anyone Gone to AK in Winter? I'm interested in seeing the northern lights

by floyd »

I've read that the area near Fairbanks is fun. There's apparently some hot springs resorts, but I can't seem to find the name of the town where they are and its not in Fairbanks itself. AAnybody know?

You want to go to Chena Hot Springs Resort. A wonderful place, not too far from Fairbanks, and yes, you can sit outdoors, in your bathing suit, in the dead of winter, in one of the hot springs, and watch the northern lights. It's a magical experience. A lot of Japanese honeymooners come in winter because it's considered good luck, in their culture, to conceive a child under the northern lights.

Is early March a good time to see the Northern Lights up there?
