Unless you're any good at monitoring solar storm forecasts and live in the northern reaches of the United States, there's a good chance you won't see the northern lights any time soon. There is, however, at least one surefire way to increase the likelihood of witnessing the stunning natural wonder: take a trip to Iceland. And thanks to an airline's new fare sale on Friday, you can get there for cheap sometime this fall.
WOW Air, the Reykjavik, Iceland-based budget airline known for its low fares to European cities, is now offering $99 one-way flights to Iceland from several US cities -- NYC, Boston, Chicago, St. Louis, and more -- for travel this September and October. In some cases (it depends on your city), you'll be able to score $99 returns flights as well, meaning there's a chance you can get round-trip flights to Iceland for around $200. This was the case with round-trip flights between Chicago and Iceland from October 8-11 (shown below) as of Friday afternoon, but there's a chance these seats and others will sell out quickly.
