Northern Lights - What else to see

Jump to last reply

We are planning to travel from Asia, most likely in Feb, to see the Lights. In deciding between Iceland, Norway and Sweden, am wondering what can give most options to see at that time of the year? Given the long travel time and likely jet lag issues, we are thinking of 2/3 days for lights and 3/4 for sightseeing.
Obviously the top priority is to maximize the probability and quality of viewing the Lights, but would also like to combine with sightseeing and activities - open minded as to activities, although maybe nothing as vigorous as mountaineering !
Much appreciate views from the knowledgeable folks here.
