Admiring the Northern Lights while lounging in bed.

Built in a remote area in western Iceland, only a 30 minutes drive from Reykjavík, Panorama Glass Lodge offers a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience. Nestled on a sloped site by the sea, this retreat provides incredible views of the natural landscape. Mountains rise in the distance, meeting the blue sky with their snowy peaks. The bedroom features all-glass walls, offering a clear panorama of the surrounding beauty as well as perfect views of the night’s sky. It’s the ultimate log cabin stay in Iceland adventure. Guests can gaze at the Northern Lights while enjoying the comfort of the plush, king-size bed. Side curtains are also available, but this glass retreat stands in an almost secluded area with only a few holiday houses some 300 meters away.

Outside, there’s a hot tub for two as well as a separate bathroom with a rain shower. A kitchen with a dining table, two chairs, and an electric stove, fridge, and other basic appliances provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy a tasty meal before the night’s breathtaking light show begins. If you want to see the Northern Lights, keep in mind that they’re visible from late August to late April on a clear sky. Even if it’s cloudy, the view more than makes up for it.

Those who wish to explore the area will have plenty of choices. They can visit a tiny lighthouse located nearby, reach a waterfall after a 1.5-hour hike, or drive 10minutes to get to Staupasteinn and admire the fjord while breathing in the crisp cool mountain air. Find out more about this log cabin stay in Iceland experience and how to book on the retreat’s official website. Photographs© Panorama Glass Lodge.
