Aurora Borealis, more commonly known as the Northern Lights, is one of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders. During the winter months the Aurora appears fleetingly in the skies above Finland, Sweden, Norway, Greenland, Iceland, Alaska and even Scotland. To witness this phenomenon is a bucket list experience. Sightings are not guaranteed, but these trips include locations away from the light pollution of big cities to maximise your chances.
