Panorama Glass Lodge



Panorama Glass Lodge® has become by far the most popular accommodation in all Iceland and
established itself as one of the main attractions for an Iceland visit for many travelers. Our brand also
won the National Geographics Readers Award in 2019 for the most unique accommodation

We noticed a continued interest from landowners from different countries to start their own
Panorama Glass Lodge® accommodation business. That’s what made us go this further step and open up the possibility for franchising. Panorama Glass Lodge® is an established and international well-known brand, featured in more than 180 magazines and newspapers worldwide. We are thrilled to finally offering this interesting and versatile option for landowners, entrepreneurs and investors alike.

The shape of the Lodges is inspired by Scandinavian houses and combines wooden elements, steel
and glass which makes the Lodges so unique. The interior is custom made, accessories are hand-
picked and a high value is placed on the high-quality products. We respect nature and use only
materials that do no harm to our beautiful surroundings.

What we offer is more than an accommodation, our goal is that all our guests have an outstanding,
comfortable, and memorable once in a lifetime experience with enough privacy in a spectacular and scenery. Even though the cabins are out in the nature, the guests can still enjoy luxury, high quality standards and extraordinary design.

There are so many other stunning locations out there and we want to make them accessible for
guests so they can enjoy the beauty of the nature in combination with all the amenities that comes
along with the Panorama Glass Lodge®.
