The Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, are a scintillating display of lights that can be viewed in the skies during the winter months at the Northern Pole. If you wish to witness the spectacle, consider visiting these 7 Aurora Borealis Observation Spots.

Visit between late September and April and on a night when the sky is clear, there is a high possibility of witnessing the aurora borealis. It's best to book accommodations far from the city and take a guided tour to increase your chances.
