Where is the best place to see the Northern Lights?

We suggest Iceland or Scandinavia for a short northern lights holiday. This is because Iceland is one of the best locations in the world to see the Northern Lights due to its strong position in the Aurora Oval - which surrounds the North Pole and represents the places where the Aurora Borealis occur the most and with the greatest intensity. If you want to see the Northern Lights without a long-haul flight you should consider Scandinavia. We have a wide range of cruises and land-based Northern Lights breaks in the region including winter breaks at the ICEHOTEL® in Sweden.  Find out where is the best place to see the Northern Lights.
