Buubble Lodge in Iceland has a small camp with a few of these adorabubble (ow yes, I went there) little dome cabins nestled in the Icelandic woods. It look like the perfect winter getaway to watch the Aurora and count shooting stars from your cozy bed.

It might also be worth mentioning that you can only book your Buubble through their own website. The 15% commission that normally goes to travel agents is put towards local community projects instead.
