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 very pleased to announce that we have received the prestigious 2012 certificate of excellence award from Tripadvisor. This award is in recognition of Hotel Rangá’s 4.5 rating on the Tripadvisor website as an exceptional achievements. The staff and management at Hotel Rangá is very delighted to have received this award and looks at this as an encouragement to continue to look for ways to make a visit to Hotel Rangá as pleasant, delightful and memorable for our guests as possible.

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.
