see nature's ultimate light show from your bedroom window

this panoramic lodge in iceland overlooks the northern lights. it’s the perfect place to check this illusive box off your bucket list. sure we’ve all seen photos of the beautiful northern lights on the discovery channel or in national geographic magazine, but still it’s hard to imagine going to see them on vacation — at least the same way we think of planning a trip to maui. gladly this place exists, this little lodge is available for rent in the town of hvalfjörður, directly by the sea and only a 30 minute drive from reykjavík. the family owned cabin is described as a once in a lifetime luxury experience.

half classic wooden lodge and half glass observatory, you can enjoy a cozy meal in one room and experience the vast beauty of earth’s most stunning display. you sleep in a glass ‘igloo’ where you will have the best chance to see the northern lights, which are bright and visible due to the remote location. the kitchen includes the basics in home appliances. it’s more for the adventurous type and is possibly the perfect location for a honeymoon or romantic getaway. you can learn more about the rental here.
