Dancing in the clear night sky, the incredible Northern Lights are nature’s very own dazzling display.

Is it any wonder that viewing them in all their glory is at the top of just about everybody’s bucket list?

With that in mind, how about checking in to a hotel that’s sculpted from glistening ice and snow, pitching up in an authentic igloo cottage, or relaxing in a breathtaking glass lodge – complete with a hot tub in prime sky-viewing position?
