Forget the tents, the sleeping bags, and the foamies. There’ll soon be a much cooler and more comfortable way to trek and stay overnight in the Icelandic wilderness: Skýli.
Skýli is a unique mountain cabin designed by Swedish architecture firm Utopia that is so stunning that it should make its way into your “cabin porn” Pinterest board right this minute. It’s made of four A-framed structures, each covered with a glass panel for guests to enjoy the view after a long day of hiking. The pointed triangles are reminiscent of the mountains where the cabin will be set up and of the basic ridge tent you will have left at home. The bright blue of the cabin’s steel roof is a nod to Reykjavik’s bright, colorful houses.
