Take trip to the ice hotel in Kiruna, Sweden. Apart from the fact that that alone will blow you away you can then take a skidoo or husky sled tour into the wilderness to see them. They're never guaranteed though but you will be guaranteed the experience of a lifetime whether you see them or not so worth the try!
