“This is a magical way to experience the Northern Lights and the quiet beauty of the Scandinavian winter wilderness. It’s pretty amazing to sleep secluded in an igloo that’s been frozen into a lagoon of glacial meltwater,” said Alex Minnis, chief operations officer, Off the Map Travel. “You get a true feeling of the imposing glacier framed by the vast star-filled arctic sky. And, if you’re lucky, you’ll see the dancing Aurora Borealis.”

 

The guided, five-night/six-day Private Glacier Lagoon Adventure includes the overnight by the Vatnajokull glacier, designed to optimize experiencing the Northern Lights. With no light pollution in the area, the igloos also include panoramic glass walls for uninterrupted views. The igloos measure nine square meters with a double bed, bathroom, WiFi, central heating and hot drinks.
