Emerging from a dramatic landscape of lava rocks and illuminated by the radiant Northern Lights, the ION Adventure Hotel is the last word on five-star adventure travel in Iceland. Around an hour’s drive from Reykjavik, the hotel is the perfect place to explore the country’s interior after a stay in the quirky capital.
The ION Adventure Hotel began life as an abandoned inn, that in the decades prior had served as a shelter for the workers of the nearby Nesjavellir Geothermal Power Plant. Since then, the imposing concrete structure has been radically transformed into a chic retreat that looks more like a crash-landed spaceship than a former watering hole for tired geothermal workers. Throughout the property, guests will find interiors comprised of driftwood and recycled materials, and an overall approach to design that seeks to amplify the gorgeous Icelandic surroundings. The main allure of the ION Adventure Hotel is its offerings of truly unforgettable adventure experiences, which range from cave exploring to kayaking and horse riding.
