Gaze up at the stars, or better still, the Northern Lights from a glass dome above your bed, cosy, snug and protected from the sub-zero temperatures and snow outside. This ethereal northern-hemisphere light show (from late August to April) is a mesmerising experience, as ever-changing streaks and funnels of vivid pinks and greens fill the sky.
