This Luxe New Glass Lodge in Iceland Offers Travelers Scenic Sights of the Arctic Tundra
The roof is connected to the Tufa Arctic Ice Hotel and guests will have a good view of the tundra from their windows.
The adventure specialists have just released a new luxury tour that includes accommodation in an incredible glass lodge in the Southern Highlands. This is the perfect opportunity for exploring the majestic mountains up north.
The aptly-named Panorama Glass Lodge Escape brings the magic of nature into your living room. On this four-day experience, you’ll be staying in one of four glass lodges just 1.5 hours from Reykjavik and will also get guided visits to a hot spring or waterfall via your choice of bus or helicopter tours.
Named after Norse mythology characters, the lodges can each sleep 2 in custom-made, king-sized beds and come fitted with a fully equipped kitchen & an ensuite with a rainfall shower. The Northern Lights can be seen while inside the house.
They’re just one of the natural wonders to see when staying here in this remote area free from light pollution, but there’s also a lot of stargazing too! You’ll have everything you need to relax and unwind on-site – including your own private sauna and hot tub. There’s also no shortage of things to do, see, or eat in the area. Lodges are heated with sustainable electricity and a nearby spring feeds your drinking water, which means there are no disruptions in service.
The American star is the smallest of the constellations, with a few bright stars and many fainter ones. Its name comes from the old practice of marking a location in the sky by drawing an imaginary line that starts at one end of a straight horizontal line and extends to its other end at a position on a circle centered on the horizon. This is called the “pole star” because it lies directly over the point at the North Pole. The term “north star” is also used. In American and Canadian English, it is known simply as “the Star”. The constellation’s brightest stars are Altair, Deneb, Vega, and Polaris.
“Jonny Cooper, the founder of Off the Map Travel, said in a statement.” These lodges are the epitome of escapism. They’re your chance to turn off and relax. Lodges included in this experience have all been designed to allow you to forget about everything else but what’s right here.”
The Golden Circle is one of Iceland’s most popular tourist attractions. We’ll travel 186 miles to showcase some of the most interesting places in the country: Thingvellir National Park, Geysir Geothermal Area, and Gullfoss Waterfall. It’s an exciting program for inquisitive visitors designed to offer a broad range of Icelandic experiences. At the earlier half of the week, you’ll explore vast glaciers and visit blue lakes like the Blue Lagoon. The final two days will be spent in Reykjavik, with a stay in a luxury hotel.
The Panorama Glass Lodge is available year-round for $4,225 per person (based on a self-catering basis with two travelers) and an additional price for flights. With an extended or customized stay, you can choose to add more nights.
