Best places to witness Northern Lights.
1. Organic Lights Cruise, Alaska
An Alaskan cruise with Queenard aboard Queen Elizabeth is the best way to see the Northern Lights, especially in August or September. Alaska is in the aurora oval - the light that is seen most often. A clear night at sea is the perfect place to stare, and being out on the water illuminates the northern lights, as there is no ambient light interference from the land. Specialists from the National Park Service are onboard to provide commentary, informing guests of what they are looking for. And another perk: Cunard is celebrating its 180th anniversary with special sales available on multiple trips, including Alaska, between July 2020 and May 2022. During other times of the year, Cunard also offers a special Northern Lights cruise in Norway.
