Let’s just say that sleeping under the Northern Lights is nothing less than magical. Those stunning green lights dancing in waves with a million stars dotting the sky– it’s just sooo dreamy. Well, the 5 Million Star Hotel (we love the name already!) in Iceland has these magical see-through Bubbles that let you sleep under the Northern Lights!
Wilderness With Some Comfort
Witnessing the Northern Lights from Iceland is certainly somewhere on the top of our bucket lists. What we know is that usually, you have to either camp in the wilderness, or stay in a hotel. And while we’re not against camping there, there are some who’d want to reel in the starry sky in luxury. So, if you want to really disconnect, and just soak in the marvel of the Northern Lights, the Bubbles are just what you’re looking for!

The Best Time To See Northern Lights From Iceland’s Bubbles
Mind you, one cannot guarantee that you’ll be able to see the Northern Lights at a particular time, because they’re a natural phenomenon. But what you can expect, is some adventure, luxury, and that connectivity with nature. Also, the Northern Lights are best visible on a clear sky, especially in winters. In summers though, you can bask in the beautiful natural surroundings of the Land of Fire & Ice: Iceland!
