Great article on the New York Times that reminds us that Iceland is an all year around destination. While the Iceland summer, with its almost 24 hour daylight is magical, the winter in Iceland certainly has its appeal. This article is mainly about what to do in the Reykjavik capitol area, but there are bunch of things to do and see in the countryside. Getting out of town, away from the light pollution, will increase your chances of seeing the magical Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis for instance. And exploring the waterfalls and glaciers of South Iceland in their winter costumes can be a great experience. Hotel Rangá specializes in the Northern Lights. The Northern Lights season runs from early September to April. Check out our current Northern Lights special offer.
Hotel Rangá is a popular destination for weddings and anniversaries all year round. The Pretty Chic Blog recently posted a blog on a winter wedding that took place last February. The photographs are great and really capture the atmosphere and ambiance of the Icelandic winter.
Weddings usually take place at the nearby Oddi church, a classic Icelandic country church. Civil ceremonies near some of the area’s magnificent waterfalls are also very popular. Wedding receptions take place at Hotel Rangá and the hotel can help with planning and wedding arrangements. Our wedding page has more information.

We got a tip from a friend, Tom, that told us that our hotel, Hotel Rangá is nominated as the hotel of the week on this webpage:
Remote, but still in the middle of it all!
Fox News Travel published a list of top ten remote hotels in the world, including Hotel Rangá. This list is originally from gayot.com and includes hotels in all corners of the world.
But how remote is Hotel Rangá? It is remote in the sense that it is a place to get away from it all and enjoy the spectacular natural beauty of Iceland, enjoy the view of one of Iceland’s best salmon rivers flowing peacefully near the hotel and in the distance a view of glaciers, mountain ranges and volcanoes.
While remotely located, it is still in the middle of it all. Hotel Rangá is the perfect base to get the most out of your visit to Iceland and explore South Iceland. The hotel’s location is perfect for taking several day trips in all directions and always see something new. Iceland is also a short distance from major markets in Europe and America, less than three hours flight from London and about five hours from New York.
