For a truly magical sight, nothing comes closer than the exquisite Northern lights phenomena. There are now numerous adventure travel companies that offer organized trips to experience the Northern Lights in both Lapland and the arctic wastes of Canada. By incorporating this magical experience into a holiday, you will have an experience like no other.
The Northern lights have astounded the Smi people for many centuries and it is thanks to this curiosity that there is now up to 20 folk tales regarding the existence of the lights. Of course, due to the advances in science we are aware of the reason behind the phenomenal lights, which is by electrically charged particles in space hitting the earths atmosphere. However, regardless of this, the Northern lights are still a view worth experiencing and are guaranteed to leave you feeling breathless. There are many spots where you can view the lights for yourself, such as various areas within the UK, but for a truly exciting experience, an organized trip to Lapland or Canada will provide you with the experience of a lifetime.
For example, in Whitehorse, Canada, known as the wilderness city, you will be spoilt for choice with masses of beautiful landscapes such as the Yukon River which runs through the town. With a fantastic backdrop for various adventure activities and a fantastic history behind it, this is the ideal location in which to combine fun with the Northern lights in all of their glory.
Whitehorse has it all for a truly magical holiday with its combination of modern conveniences and natural wilderness which makes it the perfect place in which to kick back and relax or embark on some adventure! The town is home to the famous Yukon Quest Trail dogsled race every single year - something which is sure to put a cherry on your trip.
