To begin with, visiting Alaska to see Aurora can be a wonderful experience especially from August to mid- April.

Canada is definitely an expensive destination to consider to view the Northern Lights as opposed to the other destinations. If you factor in the long-haul flight, it’s going to cost a considerable chunk of money. However, people still regard it as an attractive destination to witness the Aurora Borealis owing to the unmatchable experience it promises. Canada covers a wide range of cities to witness the Polar Lights including the provinces of Newfoundland, British Columbia, and Yukon. If you are in Northern Canada, it’s highly likely that you will get to see this miracle and an exceptional scientific phenomenon of a lifetime. Northern Canada also offers other kinds of action if you crave for something other than the Aurora. You can indulge in some whale watching or bask in the freshness of the plethora of waterfalls in the South of Vancouver.
#3 – Greenland
You can visit Greenland for an incredible aurora experience between the months of August to April. You can travel to the south of Greenland that is endowed with elegant auroras and some other attractions too. Even if you visit the place in summer, you can find small floating icebergs that look spectacular. The Qaleraliq Glacier is also one of the most lauded attractions in that area.
