Soaking in a natural hot spring after a day of adventure is something nearly all travelers enjoy, and even pursue. But relaxation is a lot less soothing when there are half a dozen other people in a tiny hot spring pool with you. This luxurious lodge solves that problem. You’ll have your own private hot spring in which to chill as the northern lights (hopefully) pass overhead. And the lodge itself is noteworthy, too — a well-furnished artist’s haven with a private deck and lake views. The lodge is part of the gated Hvammsvik Estate, among the most desirable places to stay in all of Iceland.
