Let’s see northern lights in Yurt Freya, Iceland!

Our yurts are end up in some amazing locations. Mainly, they are set in a beautiful, serene countryside, providing a calming space, to rejuvenate our body and soul. Wow, this location in Iceland, is just striking! Notably, hidden in the heart of Iceland’s Golden Circle, nestled among stunning views and the silence of the Icelandic countryside. It is an ideal place to see the northern lights, or auroras borealis, where the suns solar wind collides with molecules in the Earth’s upper atmosphere, which creates large areas of colour including pale green, pink, shades of red, yellow, blue and violet. The lights generally start from 50 miles, up to as high as 400 miles above the Earth’s surface.

The Mongolian Yurt ‘Freya’, is named after the Norse goddess of fate, love, beauty, gold, war and fertility. Black and white yurts are rare and in Mongolia. Rick and Jitka applied their artistic creation to the yurt, blending the colours of a northern lights theme into our Mongolian yurt, by painting the door and crown wheel. Yurt Freya also has an unconventional layout with a hanging bed. Which is suspended by rope from a wooden frame. It is the same frame supports chairs next to the beautiful wood burner. This amazing setting offers an unforgettable yurt experience, which is totally unique, in the wilds of Iceland.
