ION AD­VEN­TURE HO­TEL

NESJAVELLIR , ICE­LAND

GQ (Australia) - - GQ TASTE + TRAVEL -

Jut­ting out over a moun­tain­ous lava field, the ho­tel’s long, rec­tan­gu­lar torso was once an aban­doned staff-dwelling sal­vaged from a nearby geo­ther­mal power sta­tion. It also hap­pens to be perched in one of the best lo­ca­tions to view the North­ern Lights, which can be en­joyed from the ho­tel bar with a warm schnapps in hand. This is just as much a des­ti­na­tion for do­ers as it is for idlers – go div­ing in a gla­cial pool or sim­ply pull up a pew in the ho­tel’s Sil­fra restau­rant and eat ’til your heart’s con­tent. BEST BIT De­sign geeks will love the ho­tel’s sus­pended struc­ture, as well as its com­mit­ment to sus­tain­able ar­chi­tec­ture. HOW MUCH? Suites start at ap­prox. $680 per night. ion­ice­land.is
