Seeing the Aurora Borealis' vibrant shades of green, pink, and yellow dance across the sky is just breathtaking. If you haven't already seen the northern lights, you need to add it to your bucket list.

It's important to note that while these accommodations are fantastic for seeing the northern lights, it isn't guaranteed that you'll see any colourful skies during your stay. It's a good idea to book a visit for a few days to increase your chances of seeing the northern lights.

Also, websites like Aurora Watch or Aurora Forecast can help you predict the activity levels of the northern lights. For the best chances of seeing the Aurora Borealis, you'll want to book your vacation between December to April, which is the best viewing period because of the long nights.
