Hotel Rangá

Log cabins given the luxury treatment in out-of-this-world South Iceland

The outdoor geothermal hot tubs with volcano views. The wraparound glass windows in the gourmet restaurant. The observatory – and resident astronomers – for star spotting and Northern Lights hunting. Every inch of Hotel Rangá celebrates its awe-inspiring setting. Whether you visit in heavy snow or when wildflowers are springing up, a genuinely warm welcome awaits at this one-of-a-kind boutique retreat.

Hotel Rangá is a cross between a hunting lodge and (palatial) log cabin. So your bedroom or suite will be a snug yet spacious hideaway crafted from wood – with staggering views. There’s a lounge and bar for hot chocolates or hot toddies. While the games room, with its stag horn ‘chandelier’, pool table and puzzles, is all set up for cosy (or competitive) nights in.

A map at reception points you towards the incredible waterfalls, black-sand beaches, glaciers and thermal springs in easy reach of Hotel Rangá. This luxury hotel is perfectly positioned for the Golden Circle and glacier expeditions. In fact, there’s a dizzying array of activities at your feet: from snowmobiling to super jeep safaris, dog-sledding to horse riding, caving to fishing. Adventures here don’t just mean getting out in the great outdoors though. Take your taste buds on a culinary journey back at the Hotel Rangá restaurant, with an evening of creative Icelandic fare. 


Enjoy your stay!

Superb hotel with friendly staff and excellent food

Such a warm and welcoming hotel

We have stayed at Hotel Ranga a few times over the past few years and were therefore delighted when it became part of the SLH Portfolio. The hotel is a very special space - it feels so welcoming and warm and just a lovely place to stay. The hotel staff are all so friendly, every single one of them, Read more[SPLIT]Read lessand we really like how the owner and manager take it in turns to speak to everyone each evening at dinner. They are so nice, very knowledgeable and it adds a very personal touch to your stay. This time we treated ourselves to a Master Suite having stayed in Junior Suites before. We had the Antarctic Suite which was beautifully appointed with windows on 3 sides and 2 balconies with views across the river and towards Mt Hekla. The bed was super comfy and there was plenty of seating. The bath is in the room and rather novel - guarded by 2 penguins! The main bathroom is well appointed. Food at Hotel Ranga is just super - breakfasts are buffet style with an a la carte menu available too which is included in the cost. Dinners are simply outstanding - beautifully presented and the food is quite delicious. There is a nice bar area too which has a lovely relaxed feeling. The location of the hotel is excellent - a fairly easy 1 hr 45 mins drive along the N1 from Keflavik Airport - and so convenient for a number of sites in the Golden Circle. We did have bad weather one afternoon and the N1 was closed in both directions until the early hours of the next day - that happens in Iceland and then you are a bit stuck! All in all, this hotel is very special indeed and I always feel sad when we check out. I am sure we will return again and again. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It never fails to please and the management have got it just right in every respect.

Food And Drinks

Out in the wilds of South Iceland is perhaps the last place you’d expect to find a gourmet restaurant like the one at Hotel Rangá. Farm-to-table menus celebrate the season’s (and location’s) finest ingredients – from wild mushrooms to reindeer and river-fresh salmon. Ask your server for a recommendation from the wine cabinet. Then linger over post-dinner cocktails in the quirky bar.

Ranga Restaurant

Served Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner The restaurant at Hotel Ranga is an acclaimed gourmet restaurant in Southern Iceland- overlooking one of the finest salmon rivers in the country - East-Ranga River. The restaurant concept is of a Farmers Market using predominantly local ingredients of the highest quality and freshness - following seasonal availability. The menu is inspired by modern Nordic cuisine.
