Best Place to try to see Aurora Borealis in Eastern North America?

Nature Forum - Animals, natural world, earth, life - City-Data Forum - www.city-data.com
Was curious if there are any places that experience it somewhat regularly that have:

1. Regular, and affordable (<$400 RT) Airfare

2. Some type of European-ish/walkable town as a center base to go to at beginning/end of trip (Candidates I've thought up so far that would seem to maybe be far north enough would be: Duluth, Montreal, Quebec City, Halifax (Lunenburg) and Saint John's. Are these far enough north to have a 50% or better chance of seeing it during the winter, though?

3. Some type of interesting nature nearby (mountains, gorges, etc.) within a few hours to do some winter hiking.

Is there anywhere that fits this billing?

If not, I may eventually save up for a Reykjavik or an Anchorage, but would prefer to do something closer in, and cheaper.
