Hotel Rangá is a luxury countryside hotel and the only 4 star resort in Southern Iceland. Surrounded by spectacular scenery – from breathtaking waterfalls to volcanic lunar landscapes, it is a truly stunning location to say: “I do”. Choose either a summer wedding when the days are at their longest to winter nuptials, when you and your guests could be treated to a display of the Northern Lights on the night of your wedding.

The resort is built in log-cabin style and has, through the years, acquired an excellent reputation for its gourmet food, accommodation and service. It offers all the facilities of a modern resort and is located about an hour drive from Reykjavík, between the towns of Hella and Hvolsvöllur. The resort lies by the side of the river Ranga, just off the main road right in middle of South Iceland’s beautiful panoramic scenery.

Hotel Rangá is superbly located for viewing the Northern Lights in Iceland and is only a two hour drive from the Keflavík international airport.

A celebrity hot spot, top honeymoon destination and favorite hotel amongst Icelanders both in winter and summer, Hotel Rangá also offers great facilities for small business meetings, weddings and social gatherings, as well as being well located for adventure tours and various attractions, including Eyjafjallajökull, the Golden Circle and the Glacier Lagoon (Jökulsárlón).

Hotel Rangá presently has 52 luxuriously decorated rooms and individual-style suites. It also features an acclaimed riverside restaurant for fine dining, a lounge and bar, 2 meeting rooms, a game room, massage facilities and three much beloved outdoor hot tubs heated with geothermal water — where there is an excellent chance to view the fantastic Northern Lights during September through April and enjoy a time of relaxation and great experiences. The Hotel also has a first class observatory for both stargazing and sun gazing. As Hotel Rangá luxury resort is located in a rural area, light pollution is not an issue during the winter months. By turning off the external lights the hotel can provide optimal conditions to view the sky at night and stargazing.

Although there is never any guarantee of seeing the Northern Lights, if you stay at Hotel Ranga for a few nights you have a fairly good chance of experiencing this wonderful phenomenon.
