3 Hotels to Stay at in Iceland

Iceland is on a lot of peoples’ bucket list—the country will start welcoming travelers back on June 15. Many are attracted to the Nordic nation’s nourishing hot springs, piercing mountain peaks, and optimal view of the Northern Lights. Below, we’ve rounded up incredible Iceland hotels to visit👇🇮🇸

1️⃣ The Retreat at Blue Lagoon (@retreat.bluelagoon) is a 62-suite hotel with its own private lagoon, adjacent to Iceland’s most illustrious geothermal waters site, Blue Lagoon. The sleek, five-star sanctuary hosts an incomparable spa—treatment-wise, we recommend the Blue Lagoon Ritual. With the preceding, a specialist guides guests through a three-part process using the minerals, silica, and algae in the resident waters to scrub, purify, and cleanse the skin.

2️⃣ Located in proximity to UNESCO World Heritage Site, Thingvellir National Park, along Iceland’s famed “Golden Circle” route, ION Adventure Hotel (@ionadventurehotel) is a nature lover’s dream—the perfect place to end the day after activities such as trekking a prehistoric glacier or spending the afternoon fly-fishing. For a jaw-dropping observation of the Aurora Borealis, we recommend the award-winning Northern Lights bar, and the rejuvenating Lava Spa.

3️⃣ Southern Iceland haunt, Hotel Rangá (@hotelranga), offers 52 luxurious, homely rooms set amongst a verdant natural setting; one that is perfect for adventure activities such as horseback riding, helicopter tours, and ice & lava cave exploration. Decor-wise, guests can expect a middle ground between a rustic hunting lodge and a log cabin. Our favorite part? Stargazing and viewing the captivating Northern Lights from the hotel’s outdoor geothermal hot tubs 🛁
