An enchanting solar-powered symphony of lights, there’s nothing quite as magical and awe-inspiring as the Northern Lights. A natural phenomenon that occurs when electrically-charged particles from the sun enter the earth's atmosphere, the Aurora Borealis, better known as the Northern Lights, has been captivating travellers for hundreds of years. Reminiscent of Van Gogh’s piece, Starry Night, the celestial lights have inspired local myths and legends for centuries. Whether you’re partial to the ancient Greek theory that the lights are a multicoloured chariot racing across the sky, or the Chinese’s interpretation of the lights as fire-breathing dragons, you’ll be left star-struck after seeing this magical site first-hand.
