This architectural stunner is located in the picturesque north of Iceland, the villa claims spectacular views over the countryside, as well as the aurora borealis (if you’re lucky) and midnight sun (if visiting in Summer). As for the apartment itself, it sleeps up to four and is kitted out with oodles of modern luxuries. Very nice stuff.
Other than the fact it should really swap names with Greenland (because it’s green and Greenland is, erm, icy), Iceland is nothing short of wondrous. This place looks incredible, it was the site of the first European Parliament and is home to not one, but two tectonic plates – you can actually see them moving apart (at 2cm per year). Plus, it’s 80 percent powered by geothermal and hydro power, so that's pretty damn cool. Plus it’s one of the very best places to catch the Northern Lights, resplendent in all their majesterial, trippy glory.
