Catching a glimpse of the Northern Lights is practically on everybody’s bucket list and with good reason. The magnificent colorful dancing lights is a sight to behold and while the full details is not fully understood, we know that the Northern Lights happen when the sun’s electrically charged particles enters the earth’s atmosphere.
If you are wondering where the best place to see the Northern Lights is, the answer is quite known. In North America, the best place is northwest Canada (Yukon, Nunavut and Northwest Territories) and Alaska. It can also be seen in Greenland, Iceland, Finland and Norway.
While you can pretty much plan to catch the Northern Lights annually (especially during winter) but researchers have actually determined that the aurora activity is cyclic and peaks roughly every 11 years. The next predicted peak period is in 2024.
