Buuble Hotel

Last updated: 03 May, 2023

Now here’s something different – a glass-walled, bubble-shaped sleeping pod, giving you a truly 360˚ view of Iceland’s incredible landscapes – and, fingers crossed, the chance to see the Northern Lights while you’re tucked up in bed.

It’s essentially off-grid glamping – the bubble pods include a comfy bed and, well, not a great deal else. Bathroom facilities and showers are provided in a nearby service house. Thankfully, they are fully heated in winter.

Surrounded by nature, they’re designed as a place for you to unplug and unwind.

Surrounding area

There are two ‘clusters’ of bubbles: one along the south coast near Olvisholt, and one near Reykholt, a handy location for the Golden Circle.

Both locations are about an hour’s drive from Reykjavik, and very rural: several of the pods are hidden away in secluded pine forest, a rarity in Iceland. You need to organise your own transport to get there.
