A glass ceiling lets you sleep under the Northern lights in this Icelandic tiny house

Sleeping under the stars doesn’t have to be something you only see in movies. It can also be your reality if you book a stay at the Panorama Glass Lodge in Hvalfjordur, Iceland. This Icelandic tiny house not only offers panoramic views over a beautifully isolated landscape but an opportunity to spot the Northern Lights.

The tiny home is the labour of love of a young family in Reykjavik, who is originally from Germany and Switzerland. They wanted to offer guests the first tiny home in Iceland where you could sleep under a glass ceiling. So, after much planning and designing, Panorama Glass Lodge was born and took its first booking in December 2017.

The lodge is truly something special as it draws inspiration from Scandinavian homes with wood, steel, and glass elements. It’s just 23 square metres and comfortably caters for two people. You can enjoy full privacy thanks to its remote location around half an hour from Reykjavik, and it’s positioned directly by the sea on the west side of the island.

During your stay, you can lounge in the outdoor tub in temperatures of 40°c, and stay warm with full heating indoors. There is also a quaint terrace with two chairs and a small table.

While viewing the northern lights is not guaranteed, you can make use of the host’s aurora and cloud cover forecasts to see if you’re in for a treat.

Even if you miss them, you can still enjoy the midnight suns in summer, and views of sunbathing seals and whales in the fjord from the beach. Whatever time of year you arrive, you will not leave disappointed.
