Whether or not the Northern Lights decide to make their appearance during your stay, Panorama Glass Lodge offers a true ‘bucket list’ experience that rivals no other.
Imagine drifting off to sleep under the stars, or savouring all the charms of the spectacular midnight sun during summertime, all the while enjoying the blissful sensation of floating amongst an enormous sky. Picture indulging in a glass of bubbles in your very own private hot tub as the Northern Lights dance over the secluded horizon, before watching sunbathing seals and the occasional whale out in the glistening fjord beyond.
Located just 30 minutes from Reykjavik, discover Panorama Glass Lodge in Hvalfjörður, a remote location by the sea.
Resembling an igloo made from glass, you will experience complete seclusion here – so if you’re looking for the ideal honeymoon location, this is it! Inside, you’ll find everything you’ll need to immerse yourselves completely in this spectacular part of the world.
A small, fully-equipped kitchen houses two electric stoves, together with a water heater, fridge and toaster (and as much tea and coffee as you can drink!) You’ll find a dining table to enjoy those romantic meals, along with a luxurious rainfall shower – ideal after a long day exploring the local area, or simply doing nothing other than watching the ever-changing sky.
When it’s time to turn in, you’ll find a cosy double bed that’s completely surrounded by glass, perfectly situated to make the most of the awe-inspiring views all around. Here you’ll find the sky is wonderfully clear and dark at night, and with nobody else around, you can drift off to sleep in perfect seclusion – though there are roller blinds if you feel the need for a little more privacy.
Beware: the hot tub outside may become an addictive place to spend your time! Check the daily aurora forecast for the best chance of viewing the Northern Lights, and then why not time your dips accordingly? The weather conditions need to be exactly right, and when they are…well, let’s just say you’re in for a dazzling treat.Keep reading
