Alex Minnis, from Off the Map Travel states, “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. 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.”
Your Iceland experience takes full advantage of this dark setting. Hence, there is no light pollution and the igloos have panoramic glass walls for uninterrupted views north. Another point, the “igloo boats” are accessible only by boat or all-terrain vehicles. They actually float during the summer months and freeze into the ice as the temperatures fall. The igloos measure nine square meters. They come equipped with a cozy and generous double bed, bathroom and panoramic windows. Plus Wi-Fi and hot drinks. The igloos are warmed by central heating. Therefore, this ensures comfortable night sky viewing.
