If you haven‘t seen the Northern Lights then, as spectacles go, you ain‘t seen nothin‘ yet! But, worry not as help is at hand.

Only problem is, you have to be up north to see the lights and the good periods are between late September and late March. So, what‘s a good place to see the Northern Lights from?

Tromsø and Finnmark in Norway are good bets. Ease of access and a milder winter climate are what go for them. You can even go on a cruise of the Norwegian fjords and get wake-up calls to head out on the deck when the lights appear.

The area around Abisko in Swedish Lapland is an ideal viewing spot due to a unique micro-climate. The Torneträsk Lake helps create a patch of sky that remains clear regardless of the surrounding weather patterns.

If you choose Finland, stay in the Aurora Chalet in Lusto where you get an “Aurora Alarm” that beeps once the Northern Lights appear. Or, go to Nellim that sits by a large lake, so that there is always something else to do should you miss the lights.

While Iceland is always top of the list you may want to consider Alaska which too is within the zone. Stay away from city lights of Fairbanks and get into the region‘s vast wilderness areas of Denali and the Yukon Territory for the aurora.
