“It’s wonderful what nature’s capable of. Sometimes I can't believe that this is real, what’s happening here in the sky. This crazy dance show in the sky is just above your head. It’s really unbelievable. Everyone should see it one day.”
We’re in great company with Sabrina Dedler, Co-Founder & CEO of Panorama Glass Lodge where guests can sleep under the stars, or gaze up at the northern lights and the midnight sun, right out of the comfort of a cozy bed or hot tub, nestled in the privacy of spectacular Icelandic scenery.
When Sabrina convinced her husband Andreas to move from Switzerland to Iceland after having a dream of creating a glass house to gaze at the sky, he didn’t hesitate to do just that. After opening their first location in 2017 on secluded land, the cabins became the most popular in all of Iceland. With the comforts of a personal sauna, hot tub, hammock and cozy bed, the Dedler’s soon realized this recipe was worth repeating.
To continue our celebration of our planet Earth this month, Sabrina paints us a picture of not only the auroras, but the stunning scenery that she and her family steward, hopeful that guests can enjoy it for generations to come.
[1:30] Always an artist, whether through baking, makeup, or now architecture and interior design, Sabrina shares how she took her talents from her homeland of Switzerland to her latest adventure in Iceland.
[2:30] It was love at first sight for Sabrina, both in visiting Iceland and in meeting her now husband and Co-Founder, Andreas.
[6:00] From dream to reality, how the idea of a glass cabin came to life in secluded Iceland.
[11:30] Attention is in the details…no matter where you look in the cabins, around the natural scenery, or up at the night sky.
[14:30] To this day, seeing the Northern Lights dance across the sky sparks joy for Sabrina and all she shares them with.
[17:20] Guests can expect to fully immerse themselves in a Nordic Viking storybook world surrounded by a curation of local artisan decor.
[25:50] Sustainability is at the core of the Panorama Glass Lodge experience, from renewable energy, to locally sourced organic toiletries and cosmetics, to the trees planted on the property every summer.
[28:40] With two locations of cabins currently, and more to come very soon, guests can experience West Iceland ocean views and South Iceland mountain views with no light pollution in sight.
