Where the Sky is.
Panorama Glass Lodge
Under the Stars
Amazing sunsets, sunrises and stargazing and with a bit of luck watching northern lights dancing above you all from the comfort of your warm bed, no need to go outside and freeze.
Scandinavian glass cabin igloo in viking style with that little extra bit of luxury. Wonderful scenery and panorama views out of your super comfortable bed or private hot tub.
They're all the same style of House and on the same property in Hella, south Iceland. All of them do have a private hot tub and hammock nets. Alva is closest to the parking lot and on the upper part of the property. The Alva Lodge is super nice for the scenery to view at from the upper platform and a great panorama is visible. If you have reduced mobility, Alva is your best choice. Freya is more secluded and closer down at the river. It is perfect for taking photos and feel more isolated, the Lodge is closer to the river and has view on the Hekla volcano. Freya Lodge is more away from the parking lot to walk and has some stairs to walk up and a pathway to walk down to get there. It is approximately a 250m walk. Odin Lodge is on the left side of the property, with a beautiful view on volcano Hekla and on the river. It is also rather easily accessible and a bit closer to the parking lot. Thor Lodge is the one on the outermost left side, more secluded with great privacy and with view on Mount Burfell and Bjolfell and the highlands. The river is of course also visible. It is a bit down the hill, if you have reduced mobility we recommend booking the Odin or the Alva Lodge. All cabins have good privacy and are not visible to eachother at the glass parts. There is a Viking Swing down at the river and it is accessible for the guests of all Lodges on the property.
We do not have a waiting list. The best is to book at least 7-9 months in advance. In case we get cancellations, we will always announce it In our Instagram stories and also In our FB posts at the same time. This way we can reach the most people and there are always a lot of people waiting for something becoming available. It is first come, first serve. Many cancellations reach us around 30 days prior to the event, as this is the timeframe where guests can cancel without paying a fee.
Yes we do have pull up rollerblinds on the side around the bed for that extra little bit privacy in case someone feels uncomfortable :). But there are no curtains on the rooftop windows, means there will be light from the sun or moon if it's fullmoon and we recommend to bring your sleeping masks with you if you are light sensitive. During summer months we provide sleeping masks for our guests (from May to August).
Our kitchens do all have two stoves, a fridge with little freezer, a toaster, a nespresso coffee machine and a kettle plus a microwave. We do have basic food supplies like: Pasta / Rice / Cereals / Herbs and spices / Salt, Pepper and Sugar / Tea assortment / Coffee / Vinegar and Oil / Jam / Ketchup / We have pans, pots, dishes and cutlery and glasses for champagne and wine of course. Also a bottle opener is provided. If you however want to use fresh products (such as vegetables, fruits, bred, milk etc) we ask you to bring them yourself and buy on your way to the Lodges.
