If you have a taste for some outdoor adventure and find yourself in Iceland, you should check out the Ion – the first 4 star adventure hotel in “the land of fire and ice”.
Less than an hour’s drive from the city of Reykjavik, the hotel is perched upon the slopes of Mt. Hengill – as if suspended atop a series of high seat pillars – near lake Thingvallavatn and Thingvellir National Park.
This stylish hotel consists of 46 rooms, a restaurant, spa, and a softly lit lounge bar with floor to ceiling windows with lake views and the surrounding mountains – if you’re lucky you might even catch the mysteriously magical Northern Lights dancing across the sky.
Interiors boast walls of wood and smooth concrete, Scandinavian furniture, and inspiring photographic murals. Each room is sound-proofed with soft lighting, organic bed linen and down duvets, free WiFi, satellite TV, and more.
Set against a backdrop of majestic mountainous lava fields, the hotel is situated in a prime location to explore Iceland’s natural wonders… and this is where the adventure begins: snowmobile safaris, jeep tours, glacier walks, fly fishing in icy rivers, geysers, white water rafting, an ancient lava tunnel and snorkeling in frigid blue waters between continents, just to name a few.
