Hotel Rangá, South Iceland

Overlooking the beautiful East Rangá River, Hotel Rangá is one of the few truly luxurious hotels in southern Iceland. Offering fine dining, elegant suites and a front row view of the Northern Lights, you’re ensured a memorable stay.

Set on the banks of one of Iceland’s most famous salmon rivers, Hotel Ranga enjoys views of glaciers, the Mt. Hekla volcano and Westman Islands. There are 52 cosily furnished rooms including seven suites themed after each of the continents. The acclaimed Rangá Restaurant is one of the region’s leading gourmet destinations, where meals are inspired by contemporary Nordic cuisine and prepared using predominantly local ingredients.

Thanks to its rural location, light pollution around the hotel is at a minimum and as a result, the conditions are superb for stargazing.
