Top 8 hotels in the world where you can watch the Northern Lights right from the window of your room

The Northern Lights occur when charged particles from the sun collide with atoms in the Earth's atmosphere. This phenomenon most often occurs in the Arctic Circle. This means that intrepid travelers hoping to catch a glimpse of this fleeting, elusive natural wonder will have to travel to faraway places—and preferably in the dead of winter (though the northern lights can be seen as early as late August). Edition Travel and Leisure told which hotels offer the best views of this unforgettable sight.

The northern lights are best seen from Alaska, northern Canada, southern Greenland, Iceland, and northern Scandinavia. Luckily, visitors can enjoy the green and red northern lights from the comfort of luxury spas or secluded cabins in stunning hotels and resorts. Book your stay now between September and March to increase your chances of seeing this phenomenon.

Northern Lights Resort and Spa, Canada

This resort has three extravagant Aurora Glass chalets at the Northern Lights Resort and Spa ($1200 for three nights) in Canada's scenic Yukon Valley. Each chalet has large floor-to-ceiling windows to provide guests with an unrivaled view of the sky. Here you will find a spa, outdoor jacuzzi, lounge, bar and dining just a few steps from the hotel.

Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, Canada

Although the Northern Lights are located above the Arctic Circle, they sometimes reach southern Alberta in Canada from the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge ($399 per night). Located in Alberta's stunning Jasper National Park - the world's second largest Dark Sky Reserve - this luxurious mountain resort on the shores of Lake Beauver is an amateur astronomer's paradise with a range of exciting, inspiring and educational activities.

Inn on the Lake, Yukon, Canada

Grab a set of snowshoes and head out into the wilds of the Yukon, or stay in your room and watch the action from the comfort of your own home. The extensive grounds of this hotel offer not only the opportunity to see the Northern Lights, but also take part in classic winter activities such as snowmobiling, snowshoeing, sledding and ice fishing.

Blachford Lake Lodge, Yellowknife, Canada

Located in Yellowknife, Canada, this rustic, remote hotel is only accessible by seaplane. But that doesn't stop avid adventurers who head there to spend the night in the glow of the Northern Lights and dedicate the day to the hotel's jacuzzi, lounge observation deck, restaurant and sauna. The place even offers a wake-up service to watch the Northern Lights, so guests won't miss a moment.

The Hotel Arctic, Ilulissat, Greenland

Located 150 miles (241 km) north of the Arctic Circle on the west coast of Greenland, the Arctic Hotel is the northernmost four-star hotel in the world and the epicenter of the Northern Lights. When you're not watching the northern lights, you can look at icebergs (Ilulissat means "iceberg" in Greenlandic).

The Arctic TreeHouse, Finland

Watching the Northern Lights requires a lot of dedication and time spent outside in freezing temperatures, unless you can get a room at the Arctic TreeHouse (from $258 per night) in Finnish Lapland. Each room has a panoramic window overlooking the sky, so you can enjoy the frequent manifestations of the Northern Lights from your room. The rooms even have underfloor heating and specially positioned beds so you can feel cozy while waiting for the miracle to happen. It's better than standing outside in the snow.

Eliassen Rorbuer, Norway

If you're more into authenticity than luxury, consider spending a few days at the Norwegian resort of Eliassen Rorbuer (around $150 per night). It is located in the remote Lofoten Islands and offers guests the opportunity to stay in restored cabins that were once home to Norwegian fishermen. The now upscale cabins in the tiny village of Hamnøy are attracting specialist photographers looking to capture the Northern Lights over the water and mountains. You can even go on a Northern Lights photography tour or try one of the outdoor activities on offer.

Ice Hotel, Sweden

Since 1989, the Icehotel (from $250 per night) in Jukkasjärvi, Swedish Lapland has been built and rebuilt every year. Every winter it is skilfully carved from blocks of untouched ice of the nearby Torne River. The hotel is like a giant snow covered art exhibition and each room is created by a different artist. Capture the Northern Lights with a night photography class, or witness an incredible natural phenomenon on a snowmobile safari. The hotel can also be visited as part of an 11-day ski tour that will take you to Åre (Scandinavia's largest resort) and the Arctic wilderness for heli-skiing.
