Off the Map Travel Offers “Glacier Lagoon Adventure” in Iceland

Off the Map Travel has launched a “Glacier Lagoon Adventure” program. The private, five-night tour is available for booking now for dates from mid-January through March 2023. 

Two new glass igloos frozen into a secluded lagoon are set to open to guests in Iceland, offering them with the opportunity to sleep next to a glacier. The “igloo boats,” which are accessible only by boat or all-terrain vehicles, float during the summer months and freeze into the ice in winter.

The new, fully guided “Glacier Lagoon Adventure” program by Off the Map allows guests to stay overnight on the lagoon by the Vatnajokull glacier for the first time and has been designed to optimize the possibility of experiencing the Northern Lights. Guests will have a guide at hand at all times for recommendations and excursions, including a private glacier hike and sightseeing.

From a hidden (and dark) part of the Fjallsarlon glacial lagoon on the southern coast of Iceland, the transparent igloos sit in a position where watching the stars and Icelandic Northern Lights becomes the focus of the evening. The new experience takes advantage of this dark setting as there is no light pollution and the igloos have panoramic glass walls for uninterrupted views north.

The igloos measure approximately 97 square feet and include a double bed, bathroom, panoramic windows, Wi-Fi and hot beverages. The igloos are warmed by central heating, ensuring comfortable night sky viewing.

The five-night “Glacier Lagoon Adventure” itinerary includes a night in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, followed by a guided road trip to Myrdalsjokull with views of the southern coastline. Guests will then enjoy a privately guided scenic tour and dinner at the Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon before spending a night beneath the sky in a private glass igloo overlooking the Vatnajokull glacier. During the day, guests can choose to marvel at the glacier up close or visit nearby Diamond Beach with its black sand and scattering of sparkling shards of ice. After the igloo night on the lagoon, guests will continue along the coast to Hotel Ranga for the final night of the program.

Rates for the “Glacier Lagoon Adventure” include all accommodations, a private boat tour to an island with champagne and lunch, a guided trip to a special location to be determined by weather and seasonal conditions, a private guide and driver for the duration of the itinerary, and daily breakfast.
