Do you dream of sleeping under the stars? The Buubble Hotel in Iceland is offering guests the opportunity to do just that—plus an up-close view of the Northern Lights—in all four seasons. The hotel's 18 rooms are clear, heated domes nestled into two remote forest locations. Guests can choose the forest location on the south coast of Iceland or the pods along the Golden Circle further north. Those lucky enough for an overnight stay at the hotel will discover why the Buubble Hotel is the “5 Million Star Hotel.”
Both hotel locations offer privacy, enviable interior design, and stunning views. Well-suited for couples or friends, each pair of two guests can choose their pod from the nine provided at each location. However, the locations themselves are kept secret. Only with their reservation do guests receive instructions on where to find the hotel. Each Buubble room is equipped with a double bed, beautiful bedding, and plenty of extra blankets. Guests can recline in comfort while observing the Milky Way above. The remote location of the hotel also provides a starry view unencumbered by light pollution. If guests are lucky, they may also observe the aurora borealis—the celestial phenomenon also known as the Northern Lights.
Although guests may not ever want to leave their Buubble hotel room, a short walk is required to access the shared hotel bathrooms and kitchen. The hotel locations are within easy driving distance of towns with plenty of dining options to try the local fare. The colorful capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, is also under two hours’ drive from both Buubble hotel locations. To further entertain their guests, the hotel offers driving tours of nearby natural wonders including waterfalls, geysers, and National Parks.
A stay at the Buubble Hotel encourages relaxation, exploration, and spending time in nature. Rooms start at $172 a night with extra activities and amenities available. You can learn more about the hotel and get started planning your dream trip on Buubble's website.
