Hotel Ion Thingvellir
This adventure hotel opens tomorrow on the outskirts of Thingvellir National Park. In tribute to the landscape, rooms feature graphics of pure-bred Icelandic horses and sidetables carved from chunks of wood. The Silfra Restaurant specialises in Nordic cuisine, while the Northern Lights Bar flaunts floor-to-ceiling windows in the hope of glimpsing the Arctic's seasonal spectacular. Activities range from glacier tours and white-water rafting to fishing in glistening fjords.
