Travel to see the Northern Lights and gain a new perspective
Seeing the aurora borealis is considered the Holy Grail of sky watching. Gazing at the Northern Lights offers a great escape. Most people don’t put much thought into how watching nature’s ever-changing celestial display curve and flicker can greatly affect their mood, but viewing the lights can provide a relaxing respite from the hustle and bustle of the real world.
If you’re lucky enough to take a trip to witness the Northern Lights, which are visible in the winter months in the northern hemisphere, be completely still as you watch the light ribbons dance across the sky. Put down your camera, silence your smartphone, take a deep breath and take it all in. This is one show you won’t want to miss.
