5 of the Best Places to See the Northern Lights

By Manish Choudhary

1. Tromsø, Norway

In the Arctic Circle, it's easy to see the Northern Lights because there's not much light around. 

2. Yellowknife, Canada

Up in the Northwest Territories, it's really dark and cold in winter, so you can see the Northern Lights well. 

3. Abisko, Sweden

This national park has dark skies and not many clouds, so it's perfect for seeing the Northern Lights. 

4. Iceland

With its wild landscapes and few people, Iceland's a great place to catch the Northern Lights, especially in spots like Thingvellir National Park and the Reykjanes Peninsula. 

5. Fairbanks, Alaska

It's in the middle of Alaska, where it's cold and dark, so you can often see the Northern Lights, especially in winter.
