See The Northern Lights In Complete Comfort At These Amazing Destinations

This time of year can be a little bit wearing, can't it? The clocks have changed, the nights are drawing in, we're just far enough away from Christmas for it to be a little bit annoying, rather than exciting.

With that in mind, why not look to give yourself a treat? Here's a load of hotels that you could get away to in order to take in one of the must-see natural wonders of the world: the Northern Lights.

What's more, if you want to, you can take this once-in-a-lifetime celestial show in from the comfort of your luxury accommodation.

Hell, even if you can't get out there this year, it's something to add to the bucket list and save up for.

Booking.com has compiled a list - with pictures for those of us who can only dream of such a holiday - detailing their best hotels to get the Northern Lights experience without freezing your goolies off.

It doesn't take a geographical mastermind to realise that you're going to have to head - well - north, to catch the Northern Lights.

Let's start in Finland.

The Arctic TreeHouse hotel in Finland allows you to kill two birds with one stone, given that it is located in Lapland, the spiritual home of Santa.

That makes this a perfect pre-Christmas warm-up, although don't expect it to be actually warm.

In fact, if you're trying to catch the Aurora Borealis, your best bet - according to this list, at least - is Finland.

There are a whole heap of lovely spots in the remote Finnish countryside. However, the list doesn't end there.

For an English-speaking experience, you could go for the classic log cabin in Canada and Alaska. They're both on offer, should you so desire.

All you'd have to do was look at the pictures for any of these places to get the itch to go. They're all great choices.

Slap bang in the middle of those other destinations, nestled away in the Atlantic Ocean, there is - of course - Iceland.

The volcanic island is small of population, but full of things to do. That is, if you can be bothered to do anything that isn't just staring at the bright colours dancing around the night sky.

Hey, if this is all a bit too much, there's always the option of heading up to the very north of Scotland.

Yep, the Scottish Highlands are also known to catch a bit of Aurora action. That's significantly cheaper than flying to Canada, although it's potentially less likely that you'll get a good look at the light show.

It'll still be bl***y beautiful, mind.

Either way, a few days in these destinations and the onset of winter suddenly won't seem so depressing.
