Tiny glass cabin offers the ultimate Northern Lights show

Why leave bed when you’ve got a view this good?

The trouble with viewing the Northern Lights is that the countries where they’re most visible tend to be awfully cold. The unfortunate truth is: To get an unobstructed view of Aurora Borealis, your best bet is to be outside and look up. Or is it?

For the same effect but from the comfort of a cozy bed, meet the Panorama Glass Lodge in Hvalfjörðu, Iceland, a luxury rental cabin whose bedroom is built with floor-to-ceiling windows (read: the ceiling is a window). It’s a stunning visual effect that’s doubled by the fact that the cabin sits on the shores of the sea, creating a reflection pool for nature’s prettiest show.

The secluded tiny house comes equipped with everything you’d need to survive the Icelandic wilderness—a fully-stocked kitchen, rainforest shower head, and a terrace with a wood-clad hot tub. But if it were up to us, we’d suggest crawling into bed, looking up, and never leaving.
