Hi, can anyone provide any advice on how we should get to see the Northern Lights in Dec/ Jan. we are travelling from Australia and spending about 8 weeks in Northern America in total.
Is it best to fly to Fairbanks from Vancouver?
How long should we spend in Fairbanks?
Is there much else to do there in winter? We are travelling with our 2 daughters.
From what I understand, we need a clear night to see the Northern Lights. How often does this occur at this time of year. If it is not often, perhaps we will re-consider.
Any advice would be appreciated.
