They occur as a result of collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun entering the earth’s atmosphere. Pale green and pink are the most common colours however, shades of violet, green, blue, yellow and red have also been reported. Taking many forms, they vary from streamers, arcs, or rippling curtains to scattered or patchy clouds which beautifully illuminate the sky with an eerie glow. Iceland features amongst one of the best places in the Northern Hemisphere to witness this stunning natural phenomenon.
2) Waitomo Glowworm Caves – New Zealand
The Waitomo Glowworm Caves are located on the North Island of New Zealand. The cave forms part of the Waitomo Caves system which also includes the Ruakuri Cave and the Aranui Cave. As the name indicates, the Glowworm Caves are indeed home to thousands of these little creatures. In what is known as the Glowworm Grotto, they can be identified by the myriad of tiny bright lights dotting the ceiling providing a twinkling glow which reflects off the water. In addition to the glowworms, the caves feature spectacular limestone formations including stalactites and stalagmites produced as a result of water dripping through the ceiling, or flowing over the walls, and leaving limestone deposits behind.
3) Marble Cathedral – Chile
Chile’s Marble Cathedral comprises an intricate system of water-filled caverns located in the second largest freshwater lake in South America, General Carerra, Patagonia. It is considered the most beautiful cave network in the world and, as the name indicates, the walls are of marble whilst the surrounding azure water boasts a breathtaking blue owing to finely ground glacial silt. The unique shape of the walls have been formed by the water itself and many will travel hundreds of miles to see the incredible light show caused by the reflection of the crystal clear waters on the marble walls.

The Zhangjiajie National Forest Park comprises a unique national park located in Southern Hunan, China. It’s most notable feature comprises the pillar-like formations which have emerged as a result of many years of erosion. One of the most famous comprises the Southern Sky Column. This tower of quartz-sandstone stands 3,544 feet high and a small oasis of trees graces its peak. It became the inspiration for James Cameron’s “Avatar” and was consequently renamed “Avatar Hallelujah Mountain” in honour of the film.
