Silfra Restaurant and Northern Lights Bar: 

At ION’s Silfra Restaurant and Northern Lights Bar they subscribe to the philosophy and offer a menu of fresh local ingredients served with a twist and accompanied by an array of beers, liqueurs and spirits from Iceland’s many microbreweries. Silfra restaurant embodies the local flavor and spirit of Iceland, offering seasonal and contemporary dishes with an emphasis on sustainable, farm-fresh ingredients from our close surroundings. Silfra is proud to serve modern nordic cuisine with purity, freshness, simplicity and ethics as a guiding light to represent everything that this part of the world has to offer above other.

The chefs at Silfra also emphasize in what is called “slow food” that can be simplified as food made from the freshest ingredients available that is originated in the neighbourhood of the hotel. The restaurant’s name derives from the Silfra rift in Lake Thingvellir. The rift is the most popular diving site in Iceland, first of all because it the crack between the American and Eurasian continent and secondly because of the magnificent visibility that isn’t anywhere else under those circumstances.

The kitchen is lead by our chefs Hrafnkell Sigríoarson and Sigurour Laufdal.

Spa: After warming up in the sauna or soaking in the warm 10 m long outdoor pool you can experience wellbeing in the silent relaxation room. The feeling of tranquility, warmth, nature and pureness will enhance your personal energy and create an exhilarated experience!

Various massages and treatments are available.
