If you had to choose between Reykjavik, Kirkenes, and Barrow as a travel location to see the Aurora Borealis, which would you choose and why?
And pretty easy to please accommodation wise so not terribly worried about creature comforts but I realize other people value different things so just thought I'd ask.
Whichever, you're going to want to get away from the city and city lights for the best viewing.
And try to time your trip around the new moon, the full moon can wash ut the display.
Finally got to see an aurora in Iceland -- I asked the desk clerk who would be overnight at the hotel I was in to ring my room if a display started.
It is well worth seeing.
