7 Cabins In BC Where You Can See The Northern Lights Put On A Spectacular Show

Seeing the northern lights is a dream come true for most people as beautiful colours light up the sky creating an amazing experience.

Of course, the best places to see them from are spots in northern B.C. or really dark areas away from the big cities and light pollution.

However, even parts of southern B.C. have had some great luck this year, with some incredible sightings of the aurora borealis, even in Vancouver.

The less light pollution the better when it comes to seeing them. That means it's time to get out of the city, and why not make it a little vacay by booking a cabin for the weekend. You'll increase your chances by searching for them over the course of two nights.

Here are some cabins to cozy up in while you wait for the show to (hopefully) start.
