Visit the amazing Aurora Ice Museum at Chena Hot Springs Resort for the glistening, magical Aurora Ice Bar. The entire Aurora Ice Museum is filled with phenomenal ice sculptures hand-carved on site.
The Aurora Ice Museum is an incredible feat of engineering that stays at a chilly 25 degrees Fahrenheit all year round. In the bitterly cold interior Alaskan winters, this can feel quite comfortable for enjoying a drink.
The bar is expertly crafted and only has one option: the classic Aurora Ice Bar Appletini. Order yours when you book your tour.
The friendly bartenders make the moment thoroughly enjoyable as everyone marvels at the unique setting and perfectly chilled beverages.
There is seating available all over the area with ice seats and ice tables. You can spend hours adoring the gorgeous details you find all around you in this ice wonderland.
Each Appletini is shaken and poured into an individually crafted ice glass.
The glasses are created fresh daily for the tours and used only once. The ice is harvested from pure local Alaskan sources for crystal clear ice.
All the ice sculptures are created on site using the workshop of tools in the front of the building. World champions Steve & Heather Brice are the resident ice sculptures who continually refresh the space with amazing works of ice art.
Spend a day at the resort enjoying the Aurora Ice Museum and the Ice Bar. You may also want to take a dip in the hot springs or watch the aurora borealis dance across the sky, other popular activities at the resort.
Aurora Ice Museum tours are available every day of the year with tours at 11 AM, 1 PM, 3 PM, 5 PM and 7 PM.
