Iceland is known for its stunning landscapes, breathtaking views and natural wonders, so what better way to take everything in than sleep under the stars in a glass bubble? The new hotel named Buubble is situated around a 70-minute drive from the capital Reykjavik, close to Reykholt within the Golden Circle. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience and gives you the best possible chance at getting a glimpse of the illusive Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, all from the comfort of a cozy bed.
Many people heading over to Iceland go with the hope that they will witness this incredible part of nature. With the Aurora happening eight-months out of the year, from late August up until April, the chances of seeing it appear to be high, but they are not and many travelers leave disappointed. However, Buubble will give you the best possible chance of seeing the green lights with a full view of the sky all night long.
For those worrying about the logistics of the innovative hotel room, the structure of the Buubbles are composed of a ventilation system which keeps the structure inflated, all while ensuring that there is no build up of humidity and the air supply is consistently renewed. In addition, guests are able to set the temperature to their needs, making it cooler in the summer while cranking up the heat in the winter.
As for the other amenities, the experience includes a shared kitchen, toilet and shower with other guests while toiletries are restocked and given to each individual. The unique experience has resulted in travelers giving it the highest of reviews, leading the team behind Buubble looking to expand with new locations to build similar structures. This is one experience you don’t want to miss out on, so get booking before you miss the opportunity to witness the magical Aurora!
