My husband and I are planning a trip either in Late October or Late November (we're still deciding on what the best time is) to see the Northern Lights. While I was researching I noticed that the Fairbanks Visitors Bureau says that I have an 80% of seeing the lights if I were to stay 3 nights.
For those that live there, or have been, is this generally true? We have the option (budget-wise) of either doing 4 nights in Fairbanks or Whitehorse, Yukon. Which do you think is better for viewing the Northern lights, and which month do you feel has better chances (October or November)?
Your help would be very much appreciated!
