aurora borealis: the northern lights
The Best way to see the Aurora Borealis is by seeking the Northern Lights in one of remote places in northern Europe, Canada, or the United States. Although there is an aurora borealis that occurs in both the northern and southern hemispheres, the southern hemisphere locations are much more challenging.
With that in mind, the best way to see the northern lights is by traveling to the Northern Hemisphere. The chances of experiencing the northern lights will increase as you approach the magnetic pole. The magnetic pole is presently found in the arctic islands of Canada.
- Abisko National Park, Denali National Park, and Voyageurs National Park are some of the many national parks that allow you to experience the aurora borealis while also engaging the splendid landscapes of the national parks as well.
If you are fortunate to find the aurora borealis, the best ways to experience them is to stand in amazement and watch them dance across the sky. Unfortunately, you cannot predict when the lights will appear no where, but it is worth the effort when you find yourself underneath them as this magnificent light festival covers the sky.
