Iceland has become an increasingly popular destination choice in the past few years. The air is clean, its foods completely pure, and its landscapes absolutely breathtaking. Less than an hour away from Reykjavík, is the ION Luxury Adventure Hotel.Resting among a backdrop of majestic mountains and lava fields, the ION Hotel was granted the acclaimed Boutique Hotel Awards in the sustainability category. It doesn’t fall short in the design category either.


The hotel is surrounded by the awe-inspiring nature that is Iceland’s main draw and was designed to blend into the landscape. The 45 rooms are sleek and feature concrete walls and minimalistic furniture. The utilitarian design aspect is quite fitting with the heartiness that is Iceland’s rich culture. From organic toiletries to craft beers and a restaurant that highlights locally sourced products, the finer details are all appreciated; everything is of the purest quality, which is what you’d hope to find in such a beautiful place. The Northern Lights, a trek across an ancient glacier or a day of fly-fishing in plentiful icy rivers – will distinguish this experience from your average beach vacation.
