Iceland's ION Luxury Adventure Hotel Sits on Two Tectonic Plates

We recently named Reykjavik, Iceland one of the best cities to visit in Europe for multiple reasons including it’s incredible landscape and natural wonders.

Iceland’s Ion Hotel is positioned 45 minutes from Reykjavik on the edge of Þingvellir National Park which is one of the only two places on Earth where tectonic plates are visible above sea level. The entire area is an active lava field where the North American and Eurasian plates meet. The 45-room hotel used to be the home of workers of the near by geothermal power station but in 2011 it was bought and renovated with the the goal of creating the only hotel in this isolated and beautiful part of Iceland.

Whether you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing night beneath the Northern Lights, a thrilling trek across an ancient glacier or a day of fishing in icy rivers, the unique location of the ION makes it perfect for whatever adventure you set your mind to in Iceland.
