Northern Lights | Ingenious TravelIf you have only marveled at the many stunning pictures captured of the great Northern Lights but have always wanted to experience it first hand, it may be time to start planning your trip. Though the overall visibility of the lights tends to shift from time to time, there are a handful of consistently great places to experience them. Consider heading to these following destinations and watch as this natural wonder appears before your eyes…

Jokulsarlon – Iceland

Although Iceland has dozens of fantastic spots to get a view of the Northern Lights, near the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon is said to be the absolute best of them all. Being within the Arctic Circle will allow you to gain the best chance of a clear sky and once the lights hit the icebergs that cover the lagoon, you are in for an experience of a lifetime. So, make your way to Iceland and head about 250 kilometers outside of Reyjavik and get ready for a spectacular show.

Fairbanks – Alaska

Often referred to as undoubtedly the best place within the United States to capture a great glimpse of the Northern Lights, Fairbanks, Alaska makes for an incredible trip. One of the best pieces of advice if you do decide to head this way is to view them whilst in a hot spring.
