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

Luxury hotel in iceland

  • Set up for stargazing, with Northern Lights wake-up calls, observatory and in-room photography tips
  • Inventive Nordic restaurant with glass front facing the East-Rangá River
  • Hot tubs dotted around the grounds

Hotel Rangá

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.
