Explore Iceland from a ‘Floating’ Aurora Camp

A first-of-its-kind experience, exclusive to Cookson Adventures

  • A next-level luxury camping experience, off grid in one of the world's most breathtaking natural locations
  • From glass igloos with Northern Lights views to saunas on skis and ice plunges, it's entirely custom built from the ground up
  • Cookson Adventures to organise a personalised itinerary of experiences to immerse guests into the other-worldly Icelandic landscapes

Luxury travel company, Cookson Adventures, specialises in pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in private luxury travel, designing ultra-personalised adventures in some of the planet’s furthest reaches. A world-first for Iceland, this exclusive-use ‘floating’ aurora camp was recently created at Fjallsárlón, on a glacial lagoon, but can be moved to other spectacular remote locations in Iceland and Greenland for a next-level camping experience with friends and family.

During the winter months, Fjallsárlón is a vast frozen glacier in the far south-eastern reaches of the country. This towering glacier glistens over the mobile camp by day and is lit up by the Northern Lights at night. Guests sleep on the ice in spacious ‘floating’ huts, which come with luxury amenities and floor-to-ceiling windows to bring in the expansive views. Heated and powered by solar and biofuel cells, the huts bring a slice of comfort to the extreme surroundings and don’t leave a trace on the landscape when removed.

Alongside this unique camping experience, Cookson Adventures will further immerse guests into Iceland’s other-worldly scenery through designing a tailored set of outdoor experiences. Drawing on a global network of expert guides, guests can try their hand at everything from ice climbing to remote canyoning. Along the way, Cookson Adventures will surprise with remote gourmet picnics and personal touches, from creating a full-size ice-hockey rink to lighting up an ice bar to create a unique sundowner moment.
