As a charming four star hotel, the Hotel Ranga is one of Iceland's most sought after accommodation options, predominantly due to its perfect location. Located away from light pollution, the hotel has an Aurora alert system and has earned an enviable reputation for being a remarkable spot to witness a potential Aurora.

Not counting its Northern Lights potential, the hotel is equally renowned for its wonderful food and charming hospitality. In addition to its comfortable rooms, the hotel also has a range of delightfully themed suites that are always popular with guests. New for this season the hotel had constructed a roll-off roof observatory has room for up to 30 people and is equipped with two high quality 11-inch computerized telescopes perfect for star gazing or Northern Lights viewing. 

Hotel facilities

  • Breakfast and evening meals are served in the main restaurant, which offers lovely views over the surrounding countryside. When it comes to food you are in splendid culinary hands. The restaurant uses a 'farmers' market' concept to really capture the flavours of the region. They try to make the most of local produce by taking advantage of traditional cooking methods and recipes.
  • In the hotel there is also a lounge and bar area which is a great spot for relaxing in the evenings.
  • The hotel also has three very popular outdoor hot tubs, which are not only perfect for relaxing in but also provide the ideal vantage point should the Northern Lights make an appearance.

The hotel has 24 standard bedrooms. All guest bedrooms are well equipped with TV, telephone, Wi-Fi, bath, shower, hairdryer and mini bar.
