Iceland offers plenty of great glamping sites, as well as varied landscapes and adventures. Both the southern and northern regions of Iceland offer different experiences, from the famous Northern Lights to impressive volcanoes.
If you want to feel the immersion in nature of camping, but the thought of staying in a tent is dissuading, then glamping in Iceland is the solution. Get the best of both worlds; a total connection to the natural world around you, as well as a comfy bed and a room over your head – it can be as rustic or as glamorous as you like!
Glamping Yurt Outside Akureyri
The private location of this Mongolian yurt has stunning views of a mammoth mountain, and across the fjord. You’d also be in prime position for watching the Northern Lights meander through the unpolluted skies.
The traditional yurt structure is maintained, with a queen, a double, and a single bed sharing the cozy space together. The wood stove in the yurt doubles as a fireplace to warm up on cooler nights. Mountain hikes are easily accessed, and if in season, you can go berry or mushroom picking.

An additional kitchen area and bathroom complete the cabin. This comfortable, compact, and secluded cabin and the awesome views that it boasts form a real home-away-from-home.
Camp Boutique Glamping Tent in Árnessýs
These luxury tents sit on land that once used to be a part of a generational working farm, and are the products of a recent redevelopment. Each decorated in a unique style, the tents are sophisticated, romantic, and private.

If sleeping al fresco (with a boutique tent to help) doesn’t immerse you in Icelandic nature enough, the tents are within short walking distance of a black beach. Not only is this a decidedly elite way to experience Iceland, but it is also a truly unique one.
