    Chena Lake Recreation Area
    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    Come on out and meet us on the Chena Lakes for an unforgettable experience. Combine 2 of the most famous things to do in Alaska during the Winter time. Watching the Northern Lights and Ice fishing.  Ice fishing is more than just a way to fill a long winter night. It’s wonderful to breath the cold, clean winter air, to spend quite time outside and to relax away from the hustle and bustle of our normal days. Let our experienced fishing guides help you, to make this adventure memorable. After drilling through the ice with an auger to reach the lake water, you will be able to warm up in our cozy ice fishing hut. After a short "how to" briefing, you are ready to start fishing and get your chance to catch your midnight snack.   You will have the opportunity to ask questions about Alaska and subsistence living, the Northern Lights and anything you would like to know. Enjoy some hot chocolate/tea or coffee and get some great chances to see the breathtaking Northern Lights dance across the sky.  Our guides are all experienced and licensed, local and absolutely love what they are doing and love sharing their knowledge with the world.

Tyler knows the tricks
I came with my partner not sure what to expect but had a blast. It’s very similar to regular fishing but of course on a frozen lake. Layer up and drop a line.

Best tour yet!
Jan 2020 • Friends
Our tour guide Jake was the absolute best! There where four of us, my grandmother, mom, sister and I, and he was the most accommodating, entertaining, patient instructor that we could have ended up with. This was our first time ice fishing as we are from Texas, and Jake did an amazing job of making it the best experience! I would definitely Recommend taking this tour with Jake! He makes sure to make your night the best!

Also at the end of the night we did get a sneak peak of the northern lights!!
