Ah, the Northern Lights are the kind of magic that dreams are made of. Nature's greatest natural light show leaves every witness in awe, so it's no wonder that seeing the Aurora Borealis is at the top of so many bucket lists. Yellowknife in Canada's Northwest Territories is one of the best places on Earth to witness this awe-inspiring wonder. | @explorecanada
Though current solar activity cycle is the weakest in a century it has brought us some really amazing lights in the night sky these past years. I photographed these Northern lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, in Southern Ostrobothnia, Finland between years 2013 and 2015. More info: joniniemela.
Northern Lights and illuminated Teepee in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories Why Go: Areas around pristine Lake Superior in Ontario and Northern Canada's tundra back-country are prime viewing spots. Head to the town of Whitehorse within the Yukon Territory to best see the swirling lights. Sometimes, the glowing sky can be seen as far south as the American border, but stick to Canada's vast wilderness for your front row seats.
