Tour Iceland and Stay in a Glass Lodge

Sit on Your Bed and Take in the Beautiful Scenery from a Glass Lodge

Off the Map Travel introduces a new tour of Iceland including panoramic vistas from accommodations in a glass lodge. The four-day Panorama Glass Lodge Escape is set in the country’s Southern highlands, just 1.5 hours from Reykjavik, and features the lodges in a first-ever, privately  guided program.

Available year-round, the luxury tour includes two nights in one of four eco-friendly glass-fronted lodges, allowing for stunning views of the Northern Lights or the midnight sun, plus a tour of Southern Iceland via private jeep with a private guide. With its glass luxury accommodations, the Panorama Glass Lodge Escape offers a distinctive full-time “outdoor” experience, bringing the outdoor views indoors with panoramic views of the arctic tundra, the Hekla volcano, and crystal-clear rivers.

Each lodge is named after Norse mythology characters and sleeps two guests with a custom-made, king-sized bed and includes a fully equipped kitchen with basic provisions, an en suite bathroom with a rain head shower, and sustainable toiletries from Iceland’s SÓLEY organics.  Lodges are heated with sustainable electricity, always maintaining a cozy interior no matter what the weather. Guests also have access to a private sauna and hot tub where they can relax and unwind, surrounded by nature. The nearby spring supplies the lodges with fresh water.

Leaving from Reykjavik’s Keflavik Airport, a luxury jeep transports participants on a guided visit to the famous Golden Circle visiting Thingvellir National Park, The Geysir Geothermal Area and Gullfoss Waterfall. Over the course of the four-day experience, guests will also visit ice caves on the South Coast, have a snowmobile adventure at a glacier, take a dip in the Blue Lagoon, and explore Iceland’s capital city Reykjavik.

“These lodges are the epitome of escapism. The area is remote, meaning there is no light pollution so it is the perfect spot for star gazing and appreciating the incredible midnight sun in summer and northern lights in winter,” noted Jonny Cooper, founder of Off the Map Travel. “This is the first time the lodges have been included in a travel experience that brings together everything the guest needs from transfers to locally guided activities.”
