It can be hard to find accommodation in southeast Iceland during the months of June, July, and August. Scrolling through guesthouses and hotels with no luck can take its toll. You may start thinking about buying a tent and finding the next camping area or sleeping in your rental car. If that is not your style maybe it is time to think outside the box when it comes to finding a place to stay. That’s it! How does overnighting in a boat next to a glacier and icebergs sound? Some might think, now why did I not think of this sooner? Maybe because the only possible place on earth to experience this unique stay is on Fjallsarlon Glacier Lagoon.
At Fjallsarlon we offer a special tour called Fjallsarlon Overnight Adventure. During this exclusive tour you are transported by a zodiac boat to a AuroraHut, a secluded getaway, a boat that some would call a floating hotel room with one of the best views in Iceland. With its big windows from floor to ceiling nothing gets in the way of your amazing mountain and glacier view. Even the ceiling has glass, so you can enjoy the stars and aurora lights during spring and autumn.
If you are planning to do a tour on a glacier lagoon and considering staying overnight in the area, why not do both at the same time by booking this adventurous retreat? Why pay a high price for a hotel room when you can have an off-the-beat-track tour? The tour offers a distinctive place to rest, providing a special room with a view, tranquility, and peace at the heart of unspoiled nature, each aspect uniquely crafted for your experience. It is certain that it is hard to find such a picturesque, authentic and unique stay anywhere else in the world.
Fjallsarlon has a total of three Aurora huts, each capable of accommodating two people. You cannot see the other huts and the distance between the huts offers good privacy. The high-tech boat has all the necessities needed: a double bed, heating, wi-fi, toilet and small kitchen. The tour offers a light dinner and breakfast included.
If you book the overnight adventure, you can book it solo or in the company of two, never more as the accommodation fits perfectly for two people in a double bed. There is also an age limit so for families an adult has to stay with a younger teenager/adult if more than one hut is booked. You need to arrive at a specific time to check in for the tour like any other tour since there is a schedule where up to three pairs of two are transported to the Aurora Huts in the afternoon. The guests share a zodiac boat and will have the opportunity to explore the icebergs and the glacier on their way to their accommodation, overnight stay. The guide then drops guests off to each hut for their adventure of a lifetime! In the morning at check out, guests are picked up by boat and brought back to land.

We are top rated on www.booking.com with 9.8 out of 10 rating. Michelle wrote “Absolutely incredible experience- our Aurorahut / Glacier Lagoon Igloo was wonderful, we had stunning views of the glacier, and the whole lagoon to ourselves overnight. The hut is very compact but extremely comfortable, and a real once in a lifetime experience! The staff were brilliant, very knowledgeable, super friendly and helpful – Norb took us on our own private tour of the glacial lagoon and to the foot of the glacier on route to the accommodation, which despite the rain was breathtaking. It’s 100% worth the price – we’d love to stay on the lagoon again, or on the ice once Julian moves it there for the winter! An unforgettable experience!!
