ION, Iceland’s newest Luxury Adventure Hotel
Located just less than an hour out of Reykjavik, amongst the mountainous lava fields, lies the ION Luxury Adventure Hotel. Suitable for guests looking for a quiet and peaceful getaway under the Northern Lights, fly-fishing in icy waters or treks across account glaciers, the beautiful setting can be home to many, at some time or another. Being near to Iceland’s ‘Golden Circle’ also makes the ION Luxury Hotel a fantastic base to explore culture and nature for an adventure that suits you most. Also being near to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Thingvellir National Park, guests will find themselves close to iconic attractions for convenient access. ION runs on the understanding of supporting its guests after a day’s exploring, especially to support those looking for a comfortable retreat for their adventurous trip. From the Silfra Restaurant to the Northern Lights bar, Lava Spa and luxurious rooms, find all you need to recharge and recoup after a day experiencing all that Iceland has to offer. At ION, the rooms are built for your comfort and luxury equally. Designed in Icelandic style with the added benefit of floor to ceiling windows for guests can enjoy views across the lava fields.

With sustainability being at the heart of all ION do, you’ll also find the bathrooms to be environmentally friendly with water and complimentary products from Sóley Organics. Food is at the heart of the Nordic countries with their strong regional food culture relying on four key components – fresh, seasonal, simple and pure. Combining traditional recipes with new ingredients and local spirits, liqueurs and beers, the Silfra Restaurant and Northern Lights Bar embrace Icelandic culture to the full. Whether you’re looking for something seasonal, traditional, modern or just a little out of your comfort zone, you’ll have the chance to try it at the Silfra Restaurant and Northern Lights Bar. Led by head chef Ágúst Már Garðarsson, the Silfra Restaurant, and Northern Lights Bar’s specialism is ‘slow food’, meaning food cooked from the freshest of ingredients found not too far away from the hotel itself, to truly bring you a taste of Iceland.
