Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories is the closest you’ll find to an actual tourist destination for the Aurora Borealis. Sky gazers from around the world come to this frigid-but-welcoming spot specifically to stay up late and watch the Northern Lights from the comfort of a heated seat at the somewhat-primitive Aurora Village outside of town. The cost of a night viewing session, including transportation from your hotel, is $120.
