Glass Igloo - Finland
With underwater hotels already a reality and plans in the works to send tourists into outer space, it sometimes feels impossible to find a truly adventure-worthy destination. But planet Earth still has plenty for the intrepid traveller, and we are here to prove just the same. From glass igloos in far-flung Iceland to guest rooms within a volcano, each accommodation immerses its guests in a unique experience. Whether you scuba dive to your front door or reach it by way of a hanging bridge, we think you'll be impressed by the ingenuity, originality and yes, even luxury, offered by these singular properties.

Whitepod

For the ultimate outdoor retreat, Whitepod delivers. Situated in the Swiss Alps at an altitude of 1,400 meters, the camp consists of 15 pods. With the look of giant boulders, these dome-shaped tents are pitched on raised wooden platforms surrounding a refurbished alpine chalet.

Each mountain-chic lodging is heated by a wood-burning stove and has its own private front terrace overlooking the valley. The chalet features a Swedish sauna, massage area and communal space, where guests gather for breakfast and evening drinks around the fireplace.

But these bubbles offer more than just a unique experience. Made from recycled materials, they are eco-friendly, and are deflated at the end of the season, ensuring minimal impact on the surrounding pine forest. Although the bubbles are sheer, privacy is ensured, from individual bathrooms to secluded locales within the property.

Packages heighten the experience, with extras such as organic wine, gourmet dinner, massages and a telescope and star chart for the ultimate in bedtime stargazing.

La Montana Magica Lodge

Magic Mountain Lodge

This volcano-shaped hotel in Chile features water cascading down its sides rather than lava. Visitors can choose standard rooms or suites (on the ground level), all built by local craftsmen, with walls, floors and ceilings made of native wood.

Jules' Undersea Lodge

Conrad Maldives

Named in honor of the fantastical world created by author Jules Verne, Jules' Undersea Lodge began life as an authentic research habitat, and today it is a hotel for up to six people. Guests with dive certificates are invited to enjoy unlimited diving. As for novices, a three-hour course is required in order to reach the hotel, but this also allows newbies to enjoy dive excursions in the lagoon with an instructor.
