I believe I may have found one of the cheapest place in the world for me to witness a once in a life time phenomenal, the Northern Light (Aurora Borealis). People always mentioned places like Canada, Iceland, or Finland but those places are expensive to travel to and so I decided to write this article to suggest a country, often overlooked, for you to see the northern light on a budget, Murmansk, Russia.
In order to see the northern light, there are two prerequisites that need to be met. First, you have to be there in winter and secondly, you will need a clear dark. Winter in Russia is from November to February.
