The Northern Lights

exampleThe Northern Lights (or the Aurora Borealis) are one of the prettiest and most intriguing natural phenomena on this planet Earth: the night sky comes alive with moving lights of varying shapes, intensity and colors. It's surreal, mesmerizing and it feels like you're on another planet. You absolutely need to see this natural wonder with your own eyes!

Be prepared

exampleSeeing the lights is not straightforward: you need to know where and when to go, and what to do to see the Aurora in its best light (so to speak). Or to see anything at all. Do your research and you'll stand a very good chance of enjoying the show; if you show up like the clueless tourist at a random date in some random Northern place, you'll just enjoy the cold and darkness.
