Hotel Ranga, South Iceland

A luxurious country lodge, straddling a river bulging with jumping salmon, Hotel Rangá gives you an abundance of fresh food, incredible views and, if you are a bit of a thrill-seeker, will even kickstart your Icelandic adventure with a private helicopter ride over the glaciers, taking off right from the hotel’s back garden.


In the beautiful Icelandic countryside, just a couple of hours south of Keflavik Airport, is Hotel Rangá. Set amongst the mesmerising landscapes of this dramatic country, Rangá is in the perfect location for the best sightings of the elusive yet equally spectacular Northern lights.

Your room

With each suite kitted out in a unique style that reflects one of the seven continents, the combination of luxury, comfort and exclusivity will appeal to you: our favourite discerning traveller. Nothing will wake you up from your peaceful slumber. Nothing but the dedication of the staff who will make sure you don’t miss the wonder of the Northern Lights with a personal wake-up call. Now, how’s that for service?

Why we love it

Delectable cuisine at Hotel Rangá is served up in the form of modern Nordic with a twist of Mediterranean guaranteeing you fresh and flavoursome bursts with every mouthful. We loved the salmon with sweet potato and white chocolate puree, champagne foam and fresh strawberries, an unlikely but exquisite and surprisingly mouth-watering combination. With the food as delicious as this, you’ll be perfectly energised for days filled with private tours of the sweeping Icelandic countryside.
