There's something deeply romantic about the ethereal Northern Lights
According to Japanese folklore, making love under the aurora borealis will bestow good fortunes on the resulting child. While that may be hokum (and chilly), there's no doubting the romance of this celestial dance.
Scandinavia is a good option to see them. Board one of the Hurtigruten ferries that ply the Norwegian coast year round, and you can combine the lights with a wild winter cruise (www.hurtigruten.com).
Or try Finland: "Nellim is a tiny village by Lake Inari. At the Aurora Camp, a traditional Lapp tipi 20m from the frozen lake, you can sit on reindeer skins by a log fire and (hopefully) watch a display," advises Stephanie Eddy of Winter Weddings (winterweddingcompany.com).
In Sweden, you could get even closer to the action: Discover The World is launching flights (from Kiruna) in a nine-seater plane above the cloud cover and up close to the lights (www.discover-the-world.co.uk).
