The globe is full with magnificent sites that are a feast for the eyes. One thing better than looking out your aeroplane window and seeing yourself float over a soufflé of clouds is witnessing some breathtaking scenery. Imagine being able to see the most spectacular sights from above by taking scenic flights from across the world. It might be gorgeous mountains, beautiful islands, big oceans, waterfalls, or forestlands.
Is it better to sit in the aisle or beside the window? This is one of the most contentious flyer questions. While most people choose aisle seats for the extra room, certain beautiful flights require you to get a window seat and be prepared with your cameras to capture the spectacular sights. But, before you go on these greatest airline routes, start by looking for affordable flight tickets online.
These are some of the most breathtaking flights from across the world that will take your breath away:
Northern Canada To Greenland, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland

So, if you are flying through any of these places and the night is clear, there are high chances you can witness the Northern Lights in the sky.
