Interested In Seeing The Northern Lights? Here Are 10 Places To Visit

If you long to see the aurora borealis, famous as the Northern Lights, then there are 10 amazing places for you to visit.

This breath-taking natural phenomenon happens because of charged particles coming from the sun and colliding with gasses in the atmosphere.

Can you imagine of anything most beautiful than this experience?

Here are 10 places that can offer it to you:

1. Fairbanks, Alaska

Alaska, the biggest and coldest state in the US, has plenty of spots to view the breath-taking sky of the Northern Lights. The best place to see the aurora sky is in Fairbanks; according to locals, if you stay there for three days, there's a possibility of 80% that you will see the Aurora Borealis.

2. Tromsø, Norway

This spectacular city can give you a wonderful view of the Northern Lights for the most months of the year. Due to the Gulf Stream, the climate in Tromsø is milder, which helps the 'aurora' sky to be more easily visible. Additionally, there's nothing better than the Northern Lights Festival, where tourists can enjoy the aurora view while listening to various types of music. Is there a better combination?

3. Salekhard, Russia

It's not surprising that Russia's North can offer amazing views of the Northern Lights. However, it's not the most popular destination for travelers, although the Russian city of Salekhard is the only one located in the Arctic Circle. Anyone who gets there can enjoy the Aurora Borealis while seeing the special green glow that is also called as 'the light of the dead'.

4. Kakslauttanen, Finland

Kiruna is a tiny city in Swedish Lapland which is also very close to Abisko National Park. The park is a great place to see the Northern Lights since it's located in the so-called 'aurora oval'. If you visit the Aurora Sky Station, you can be advised by experts about this magical phenomenon.

6. Tórshavn, Faroe Islands

Even if they belong in Denmark, the Faroe Islands also have an 'independent' identity. Although it's not a really popular destination, everyone will agree that the view of the Northern Lights there is breath-taking. If you ever visit the Faroe Islands, make sure you stay in the capital city, Tórshavn. You can even see the Aurora phenomenon from there, or visit a less crowded spot, outside of the town.

7. Greenland

8. Yellowknife, Canada

This Northwest Territories capital on the shores of Great Slave Lake boasts its own Aurora Village and special activities for northern lights tourism. The best time to visit Canada is from Mid August to late April when you can enjoy the Aurora Borealis the most. Low light pollution is one of the country's most important advantages since it allows viewing the Northern Lights more easily.

9. Reykjavik, Iceland
