The ION Luxury Adventure Hotel is hands down, the coolest place you can stay in Iceland. We experienced all sorts of hotels, guesthouses, cottages, and the ION was by far our favorite. You get the best of both worlds: rugged scenery, a feeling of solitude, both without sacrificing the comfort and amenities a sophisticated hotel like this can offer. It's nestled in Thingvellir and is a good place to get revitalized if you’re coming from the Westfjords as we were.
The ION is the perfect escape, with easy access to the plenty adventures of Iceland. While at the hotel, be sure to check out the restaurant Silfra, the award winning Northern Lights Bar, and the amazing Lava Spa and Pool, filled directly from the nearby hot springs. The ION oozes style and you don't have to take my word for it -- check the feature in Porter Magazine!
