When considering an overseas honeymoon (or even a destination wedding), the venue selection can be rather harrowing with an entire world to consider. As part of our #honeymoonhumpday series, we're going to be bringing you a variety of venue profiles, honeymoon styles and tips every Wednesday to help you narrow your options down to somewhere truly amazing.
This weeks honeymoon venue is ION Luxury Adventure Hotel, just a 45 minute drive from the heart of the beautiful Reykjavik. Located against the magnificent backdrop of the rugged lava fields, ION is a truly remarkable experience for your honeymoon.
ION is made up of 45 lavish rooms, which have all been designed and decorated in unique Icelandic style with touches of nature, creating an earthy ambience. As ION heavily leans on sustainable practises, each room is provided with fair trade organic linens and towel, and Icelandic soaps and lotions from Sóley Organics. The expansive floor to ceiling windows allow guests to completely appreciate the picturesque views of the lava fields and Thingvellir National Park.
ION’s Silfra Restaurant and view-heavy, award winning, Northern lights Bar guarantee that guests have a true Icelandic experience before they even step outside. Enjoy traditional dishes with contemporary flare crafted from fresh and local ingredients, capturing the flavour and spirit of Iceland. Complement your dining experience and choose from a wide selection of beers, liqueurs and spirits sourced from Iceland’s microbreweries.
For the best chance and optimal viewing of seeing the infamous lights from the Northern Lights Bar, it is recommended to visit between September and April.
After soaking in the heated outdoor pool or warming in the sauna, take a visit to the ION Spa. The Icelandic treatments ranging from herbal massages to glowing facials are known to leaving you feeling tranquil and pure, helping to increase your personal energy and create a stimulated experience at ION.
If you are after something more adventurous, opt for one of ION’s many tour adventures. Embark on a 25 kilometre horseback riding expedition through the black sand south coast beach and admire the scenery of the undisturbed land. Or, take an ECO Super Jeep Tour of Iceland’s Golden Circle. Start at the geological wonder that is Þingvellir National Park, followed by Geyser and its 30 metre spouting hot spring, ending at the graceful Gullfoss waterfall.
