Kate L and Victoria are here to help give you the inside track.

Dubbed Iceland's first adventure hotel, the property is designed with simple wooden interiors, wildlife images and floor-to-ceiling glass windows to show off the surrounding landscapes of snow covered mountains, lakes and lava fields to the max.

All 46 bedrooms are designed for comfort and kitted out with fair-trade linen and organic products used in the en suite bathrooms. Each bedroom has views over the thermal power plant and lava fields.

There are activities galore at ION, including rafting, hiking and glacier tours to name a few. For a more relaxed option there is a Lava Spa which offers a variety of beauty treatments and massages, or guests can visit hot springs.

The Silfra restaurant creates seasonal and contemporary dishes with Nordic flavours in a modern dining room. The views and food blend wonderfully and are further complemented by a cocktail in the Ion Northern Light Bar. This is a great spot to enjoy panoramic views of Lake Thingvellir and, in the winter, the Northern Lights. More importantly, they have a wide variety of Icelandic beers to sample.
