In looking for new, exciting travel destinations I’m turning to the sky. TravelSort posted a pretty awesome Northern Lights video that caught my eye (below), that has made me determined to finally see the Northern Lights.
I’ve done a bit of research, though I’m hoping y’all have some ideas too. It seems the best time to see the Northern Lights is in March and September, and obviously the further North you go, the better. But does anyone have any firsthand experience with trying to catch a “show?” In other words, are they frequent enough so that one could conceivably take a trip to somewhere in Alaska, Russia, Norway, etc., in order to see the lights, or is that a waste of time? I’d hate to fly to some icy, dark place for a week, only to not see them and realize they’re a lot less common than I had expected.
Anyone else have this as a travel goal, or has recently seen them? I’d love to hear some experiences!
