5 Cities To See The Northern Lights (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

With so many wonders of the world, it is hard to keep up with natural phenomenons that are always changing. Natural sights are unique in their nature, but so hard to catch at the right moment. Aurora Borealis, otherwise known as The Northern Lights are one of those mystical, jaw dropping sights that you must see. Even an Asian belief says anyone who spots the Northern Lights will live happily ever after.

If you're brave enough to bare the cold arctic temperatures, you'll be rewarded with one spectacular light show. The best time to make your trip is between late autumn and early spring. Sometime between September 21st and March 21st the arctic area is dark from 6pm to 1am; prime times to spot the lights. As long as the weather cooperates, you should be able to catch the show.

Our friends at CheapOAir put together a list of the 5 cities around the world that make great spots to see the Northern Lights.
