A friend and I want to plan a trip to the north to view the aurora borealis. So I was wondering what time of the year would be best for viewing? And possible locations for vacationing to see the event.

Any information would be helpful.
Thank you in advance. :)

This Aurora FAQ page (http://www.pfrr.alaska.edu/aurora/faq.htm) should help. I particularily like the diagram showing % probabilities of seeing it in different locations.

See this aurora borealis page (http://personal.inet.fi/koti/tom.eklund/aurora.html), FAQ there gives some answers to your specific questions. Good luck with your trip!
