I've been thinking a bit about taking a trip to see the aurora and solar maximum in 2012 seems like a good time. I live in the southern US, so I can't really see the aurora at home.
Are there tours/packages for this type of event? I'm thinking one of the northern European countries and getting in a little exploration beyond the aurora as well.
As a second question: if you've done a aurora trip (either in a tour or just on your own) any advice?
