Leave The Driving To Us
60 scenic miles away from Fairbanks
Chena Hot Springs Resort is located at milepost 56.5 which is at the very end of Chena Hot Springs Road. The paved road is called “Chena Hot Springs Road” because it ends at the resort!

Transportation is for guests that stay in our lodging, or for guests that book a package with us.
We need a minimum of 72 hour notice to guarantee transportation.
One way service: $65 per person
