Northern Lights and illuminated Teepee in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories Why Go: Areas around pristine Lake Superior in Ontario and Northern Canada's tundra back-country are prime viewing spots. Head to the town of Whitehorse within the Yukon Territory to best see the swirling lights. Sometimes, the glowing sky can be seen as far south as the American border, but stick to Canada's vast wilderness for your front row seats.

Butchart Gardens in Canada. Especially love the first picture, love the colour blend, and the tall Arborvitae trees.
