What if “staying in the bubble” meant a completely new and unique experience. The phrase got reconsidered when Iceland got a new, one-of-a-kind, bubble hotel. Accommodations at this bubble hotel in Iceland entails what the name expresses. The stay options include living in an actual, inflatable bubble that is fastened to a tree and a 5 million star hotel.
WHAT TO PACK IF YOU ARE STAYING AT THE BUBBLE HOTEL?
Dubbed as the 5 million star hotel in Iceland owing to the expansive canopy of a million stars, the Buubble by Airmango could be one of the ways of attaining the fantasy of sleeping under the mystical Northern Lights. One can truly unplug and get away from the chaotic humdrum of life.
There is a common house that is equipped to fulfil necessities like restroom facilities, kitchen, etc. But one needs to note that this Iceland’s tree bubble hotel is not like a regular hotel. It is simply a way of getting away from the hustle and bustle and experiencing life in the wilderness. So one has to carry their toiletries, food, and towels but one can confirm the same before booking the stay. One also needs to carry their utensils and camp spork. Do not forget to keep a flashlight handy during your stay.
WITNESSING THE NORTHERN LIGHTS FROM THE BUBBLE HOTEL
Gazing at the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis is normally on the bucket lists of many travelers. It is crucial to pick the right time of the year to catch the Northern Lights in Iceland. They occur commonly during the winter months when the sunlight lasts for a few hours in a day. The shorter the day, the more likely it is to see the Northern Lights.
Also, the Northern Lights do not always linger in the sky for long periods. One has to keep a check by going outside during the night and early mornings. But at the tree bubble hotel you need not go outside at all, since the inflatable bubble is completely transparent.
HOW TO GET THERE?
The bubble hotel is deep into the forests near the town of Selfoss. It is located an hour’s drive from Reykjavik. There are two bubble hotels on the South Coast of Iceland. One will receive a detailed driving guide and a map after booking the stay.
