Top 6 Amazing Places To Sleep Under The Stars

Would you think that there can be anything better than falling asleep under the stars? Some say: yes, sleeping under the stars in the world’s most luxurious places where you feel like you are in a billion-star accommodation.

Here are 6 amazing places where sleeping and stargazing merge into a spectacular experience that will stay in your memories forever:

1.      Kakslauttanen Glass Igloos, Finland

There is no better place to see the Northern Lights and have a spectacular stargazing experience than from a glass igloo placed into the white snow in Finland. Placed only 240 km north from the Arctic Circle, the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort is a very famous destination for Aurora Borealis-spotting enthusiasts.

The glass igloos are made out of thermal glass. So, you don’t have to worry about feeling cold during your under-the-stars experience. It is one of the best destinations where you can have a digital detox and reconnect with nature as there is no Wi-Fi connection in the igloos. So, you don’t have to worry that any unwanted text or social media will disrupt your stargazing experience.

2.      Icehotel, Sweden

Even though sleeping in the snow doesn’t sound like an appealing experience, the spectacular Icehotel in Sweden is known to offer an outstanding experience under the stars. Apart from the unique experience of sleeping on the Arctic glacier, the destination is one of the best stargazing places in the world where you can enjoy the amazing view of the Northern Lights.

Located 200 km inside the Arctic Circle, the Icehotel is rebuilt every year, in October, by some of the most reputable ice sculptors from all around the world. It is certainly a one-of-a-kind type of holiday for those who love to try uncommon, yet spectacular places that help them reconnect with nature.

3.      Attrap Reves Bubbles, France

If you think that there is nothing more romantic than a night in France, think twice. You may have not heard about the Attrap Reves Bubbles where you can fall asleep next to your loved one while admiring the night sky. Depending on how luxurious you want your experience to be or how genuine, you can choose between transparent inflatable spheres that have grass on the floor or one that looks exactly like a suite that even has its own bathroom.

Located in southeastern France, in Marseille, the climate-controlled bubbles provide a spectacular experience for couples who want to experience stargazing. Who said that immersing yourself in the woods can’t be done in a luxurious king-sized bed? The Attrap Reves Bubbles prove quite the opposite. You will be able to enjoy a soundproof pod that offers a 360-degree view of the surrounding nature, including the spectacular night sky.

4.      Waldseilgarten Höllschlucht, Germany

If you are looking for a more extreme under-the-stars experience, you can take your sleep to the next level at Waldseilgarten  Höllschlucht in Germany. If you aren’t scared of dreams of falling and wish to experience a floating sensation during your night’s sleep, you can enjoy extreme camping and become at one with nature in the forest.

Although you need to test your limits and your rock-climbing skills, the unobstructed views of the sky above your head that you will have once you reach the tent will be simply breathtaking. Waldseilgarten Höllschlucht isn’t for the faint-hearted but rather for those who love adventure when there is a little danger involved.

5.      Nkwichi Lodge, Africa

If you aren’t exactly a fan of neither adventure nor cold destinations from around the world, don’t worry, we got you covered. The ultimate way to savor the night sky and the best sunsets in the Lake Malawi is from a luxurious king-sized bed placed on a deserted beach or on a private rock island.  The Star-bed platform offers a unique experience on the beach from where you can admire the wonders of the African night sky.

Since the area is free from light pollution, you will be amazed by how beautiful and alive the sky looks during the night. You can start a campfire on the beach or lay down comfortably on your back on the comfortable bed and enjoy the night lights under your head.

Another spectacular way to admire the sky just before you fall asleep is on a sleep-out deck in the heart of the wild at the Malori Sleep Out Deck in Tswalu Kalahari. Not only that you get to enjoy the breathtaking view of the surrounding nature but you also get immersed in the calls of the nocturnal animals for a unique experience of a safari sleepout.

The platform is positioned in a way that you can admire the most beautiful sunsets in the area. Next, as the night sets in, you can lay down on your back in the comfortable king-sized bed and enjoy the night sky that can be viewed in its full glory.
