We are going back to Iceland -- this time to the Golden Circle-- to chase northern lights, and experience all of the delights of the volcanic wonderland that is Iceland. This trip includes 7 nights split between Reykjavik and Nesjavellir, offering both city exploration and rugged Icelandic adventure.
We are planning on soaking in some of Iceland's famous hot springs-- and soaking under the Northern lights. If karma is kind, hopefully we can soak in the hot springs WHILE we soak up the northern lights.
The first three nights, we will stay at Ion City a luxury hotel in the heart of Reykjavik. Explore the famous rainbow road, visit Hallgrímskirkja, one of Iceland's most famous landmarks, dine, and shop in the Capital of Iceland.
Hallgrímskirkja is a Lutheran (Church of Iceland) parish church in Reykjavík, Iceland. At 74.5 metres (244 ft) tall, it is the largest church in Iceland.
Less than an hour’s drive from the hustle and bustle of Reykjavík and set against a backdrop of majestic mountainous lava fields, our home base at Ion Adventure Hotel on Mount Hengill will be an unforgettable experience.
Whether you are seeking a quiet, soulful soak beneath the Northern Lights, a challenging trek across an ancient glacier or a day of fly-fishing in plentiful icy rivers – at ION Adventure Hotel, these are only a wish away.
Our location by the “Golden Circle” route makes it the perfect base from which to explore Iceland’s rich heritage, hardy flora and fauna, and myriad opportunities for extreme adventure.
Close to Thingvellir National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), it provides easy access to all the essential attractions of “the land of fire and ice”.
And you know they will take good care of you upon your return after a day of adventures. The rooms, magnificent Restaurant, award-winning Northern Lights bar, the awesome Lava Spa and the magnificent landscape that stretches out to the horizon wherever you look provides calm and good service so you can recharge, reflect and rejoice.
