Selfoss, Iceland

ION, Selfoss, Iceland | wow! | Get in touch with your wild side at a formerly abandoned inn located in the desolate planet landscape bordering Thingvellir National Park. This is where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. You can snorkel in crystal-clear waters along Silfra fissure, hike Langjökull glacier, or cozy up and admire the Aurora Borealis through floor-to-ceiling windows.:

Where else in the world besides Iceland can you scuba dive at the fault line between two tectonic plates? Nowhere. That unique activity is far from the only exciting reason to visit the Nordic nation of fire and ice. The former comes in the way of secret hot springs (found while hiking Reykjadalur Valley) and trekking through lava fields, tubes, caves and a desert of black ash. The latter is experienced via snowmobile or riverjet, ice cave exploration or glacier hiking. The otherworldly possibilities are endless at Ion Luxury Adventure Hotel, especially the wintertime grand finale: the Northern Lights spectacle.
