If you have never heard of the Aurora, Northern Lights, Polar Lights or even Southern Lights sef, We do not know if you will find this post interesting at all.
But Wikipedia can explain to you in the simplest of terms what exactly it means so that you can look out for ut if you ever find yourself in the North Pole, Fairbanks, Alaska, Arctic or Antarctica.
An Aurora, sometimes referred to as polar lights, northern lights, southern lights, is a natural light display in the Earth’s sky, predominantly seen in the high-latitude regions. Auroras are the result of disturbances in the magnetosphere caused by the solar wind.
If seeing the Northern Lights is something you’d like to cross off your list, there’s plenty of tours around the world that are happy to provide you with the first-hand experience to see this amazing natural phenomenon. So here are some of the best places to see Aurora Borealis herself.
- Aurora Borealis Lodge: This amazing 1,000-sq.ft lodge was specially made for seeing the lights! It’s located 20 miles outside of beautiful Clearly Summit, far away from the city lights of Fairbanks in the USA. The lodge was built facing the North and it sleeps 6 guests, so you don’t have to witness the awe-inspiring sight all alone.
- The Hotel Kakslauttanen: This hotel in Finland is also the perfect place for seeing the lights, as it’s just north of the Arctic Circle. The Kakslauttanen is as close to the Urho Kekkonen National Park and the best part is you will view the lights from a heated igloo with a glass ceiling.
- Alta-Can Aurora Tour: You might be interested in doing more as you see the light, the Alta-Can Aurora Tour is what you definitely need. Guests take part in wilderness experiences, make dream-catchers and even go skiing.
- Jukkasjavi aka Ice Hotel: The Ice Hotel is the worlds largest hotel built entirely from ice and snow. The Ice Hotel is one of the number one places in the world to spot the Northern Lights, with over 50,000 guests visit each winter.
- Aurora Borealis and the Nothern Lights Tour: Yukon is the smallest of Canada’s three federal territories and one of the most attractive places to view the Northern Lights thanks to the wide open skies and the absence of bright city lights. The tour takes you to all the best spots, while dog sledging, ice fishing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.
- Arctic Adventure Tundra Lodge: If you prefer to view the lights accompanied by polar bears, then you should jump aboard the Tundra Lodge, which is known as the world’s only moving hotel. This lodge travels across the tundra letting guests see wild polar bears in their natural habitat by day and the Aurora Borealis by night.
