BEST VISITING MONTHS
Visit October to March, if you're after the Northern Lights. However, most outdoor activities are available while the temperatures are mild during the high Season in the summer, June to August.
Silica Hotel is the official accommodation of the infamous Blue Lagoon in Iceland. Luxurious, private, and complete with its own hot spring, the hotel is a perfect destination for those looking to recharge and relax in unusual surroundings.
Silica has 35 rooms, including private verandas with views to the lava fields. A designer's dream, the hotel does an excellent job of integrating the inside and the outside, inviting the landscape to be a part of every guests's experience.
Swim in the blue lagoon and indulge in a traditional silica mud mask. Enjoy one of the spa treatments offered onsite, one can only experience in Iceland. Look around and truly take in this otherworldly place.
Drive across the country. Start with seeing the enormous geyser Strokkur (erupting every 5-7 minutes), following the scenic Gullfoss. Hike to the top of a dormant volcano, go glacier hiking, ice climbing and rafting, then sit in a thermal hot spring, or swim in the Blue Lagoon. The possibilities are endless in “the land of fire and ice”. Silica Hotel is the perfect last stop after discovering Iceland's “Golden Circle” route.
Breakfast buffet in your robe, complete with a variety of smoked fish, waffles, and of course, SKYR - the country's famed yogurt. For dinner, visit the Lava Restaurant for masterfully prepared, local sustainable dishes. Make sure to try lava rock salt butter with Icelandic bread, and torched Arctic char, followed by lamb or cod.
Silica is located 15 minutes away from the airport and 45 minutes away from Reykjavik. We recommend renting a car to have the freedom to explore.
Do not pack light! Iceland's bipolar weather can change in a matter of minutes. Make sure to bring your parka and warm hiking boots, even in the summer months.
