15 of the best spots to catch the northern lights in Canada


Battle Harbour, Newfoundland &Labrador

This quaint, historic village is only open from June to September, but sky-watchers still flock here to catch the northern lights in action. The village operators hold nighttime tours that offer the perfect opportunity for photographers to snap shots of the lights with a picturesque village in the foreground. And if you’re looking for a little more adventure, just outside the town lies an expansive landscape, where you can explore fjords and icebergs as you continue your northern lights experience.
