There’s an amazing bubble hotel in a secret location in Iceland, which allows guests to watch the beautiful Northern Lights while being in bed.
The Buubble website calls itself ‘The Five Million Star Hotel’ and invites you to ‘let your childhood dream of sleeping in the nature become reality’.
Accommodation consists of five types of ‘bubble’, Una, Asta, Thorunn, Valdis, and Maria – each sleeping two adults.
Thanks so much Eric for the awesome video of your stay with us and your trip to Iceland!

The exact location of the bubbles is top-secret, with the website stating:
We take the privacy of our guests seriously, given the nature of our speciality lodge. Therefore we do not provide exact address of our bubbles until after you have booked.
We can however tell you it is a 70 minute drive / 93 km from Reykjavik in Iceland. It is close by Reykholt in Blaskogabyggd.
Prices vary from ISK 28.900 to 29.900 (approximately 217€ to 225€) for one night in a bubble with a double bed and also includes access to a ‘shared service house’ with two toilets, showers and a self-service kitchen.
The website says they’re ‘not like a normal hotel’ as there is ‘no food included’ in the price of your stay and you’ll need to bring your own amenities, such as towels, tissue, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner.
They also state the bubbles are located in a forest and are kept warm with air blowers.
Over in Lapland, you can also sleep under the Northern Lights.
Family business, Levin Iglut Golden Crown, has 24 individual glass igloos to offer you the chance to see the spectacular Aurora Borealis, surrounded by glistening white snow.
There are two types of accommodation – Premium and Superior – a Premium Igloo will set you back around $472 per night (£358), while the the Superior Igloo starts at $390 per night (£295).
The igloos feature electric heated ‘non-fogging glass’ and air conditioning, as well as a small kitchen, shower and a toilet.
They also have Wi-Fi, so you can upload photos and videos to your social media to make probably everybody on your friends list jealous!
Did I mention the motorised beds – which can be adjusted to the desired position for watching the Northern Lights?
The Premium igloos are situated in a ‘prime location’ on the side of the fell complete with an ‘unobstructed view of the valley’. Sounds incredible to me.
The Levin Iglut Golden Crown website says:
It was born from one man’s dream and began with four luxury-level glass igloos.
Now it boasts a total of 24 glass igloos that are supplemented by the services of a high-quality restaurant and the Northern Lights House, which can also host events.
Everything we do is still based on warm, personalised service.
The venue has received widespread praise on review site TripAdvisor, where is has a 4.5 average score out of five.
One guest, from London, wrote:
Stayed one night here on the 5th March and it was worth every penny.
The igloo itself is like the Tardis. Deceivingly small on the outside but very roomy on the inside. It was specified to a high standard and the electrically operated bed made star gassing [sic] a very comfortable experience indeed.
The igloo village is set out in such a way that you could get one that is on the second row and has views of other igloos. We were lucky and had one with an uninterrupted view of the land below. (It’s set half way up Levi fell).
We saw the lights and stayed awake long in to the early hours watching them. Something you just can’t do without the comfort and warmth of the igloo.
