If you’ve ever dreamt of sitting beneath the stars, bundled up with a cup of hot chocolate, watching the aurora borealis dance across the sky -- this next year may be your best chance to make this dream a reality for quite some time. The northern lights rotate on an 11-year cycle, and after 2016, they’ll dim (but not disappear) for the next 10 years. So you know what that means: time to book your flight to Iceland, Finland, Greenland, or Norway to see the natural wonder ASAP.
Now this is how I would like to see the Northern Lights! - The Igloo Village of Hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland boasts 20 thermal glass igloos that allow visitors to enjoy incredible views of the Aurora Borealis from the warmth and comfort of their own geodesic hut.
