The observatory is open every clear night and includes expert on site. However, if you wish to see the observatory outside of opening hours, we are happy to show it to you (no telescopes can be used though).
We do not have a swimming pool or a spa. We do however, have three hot tubs outside – perfect for watching the northern lights or the midnight sun. Massage appointments are available upon request. In both Hella & Hvolsvöllur are swimming pools and gym.
Yes, we do. The Puffin is not protected here in Iceland in a way that he is not on a list of endangered species.
Of course, all species which are hunted in Iceland are closely monitored.
Here in Iceland we are well aware of global warming and we follow responsible fisheries and hunting.
No, we do not offer shuttle service. However, we can arrange private transfer or any form of transportation to and/or from Hotel Rangá at a charge. There is also public transportation but, the connections are few and far between and therefor need to be well planned. To arrange transportation please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Diamond Beach and the Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon are approximately 3,5 hours from Hotel Rangá.
You can see the South Coast (Seljalandsfoss, Gljúfrabúi, Eyjafjallajökull, Seljavallalaug, Skógar Museum and Waterfall, Mýrdalsjökull, Dyrhólaey, Reynisfjara and Vík) It takes approximately 1 hour to drive straight to Vík. All the above-mentioned sights are on the way there so you might very well spend a lot more time getting back and forth!
All the proteins are local. We aim to get as much local products as possible.
Our kitchen is more than happy to try to accommodate all of your needs.
We do have vegan / vegetarian options for all of our meals. We are experienced in catering for most types of allergies (gluten, nuts, dairy etc.). Nuts are not used in our dishes served from the kitchen. However, at breakfast, peanut butter and Nutella are available at our breakfast buffet table.
It is important that you inform us in advance on any dietary requirements you might have by sending us an email to email@example.com. If you are staying with us for more than one night and plan to join us for dinner all of the evenings, we kindly ask you to notify our reception or waiters so that we are able to prepare more options for you.
Check-in is at 15:00 (3 pm) and check-out is at 12:00 noon.
The weather can change a lot all year round and you can expect anything from 18 degrees Celsius to -10 degrees Celsius. The wind can be strong and cold, and you are almost sure to get a bit of rain, hail or snow. Better be safe than sorry - so pack like you are going on a winter vacation. It is easier to peel off a layer than being cold and poorly dressed. Good hiking shoes/boots that are water proof since many sites have dirt tracks that easily get muddy and slippery. We suggest bringing warm clothes (sweaters and perhaps even ski underwear (long-johns!)) Depends on how used you are to the cold. Wind- and rain proof outer layers (pants and coat), a hat and gloves - a scarf is also a good idea.
Skyr is an Icelandic cultured dairy product. It has the consistency of strained yoghurt but a much milder flavor. Skyr is technically classified as cheese, although widely regarded as yogurt. It has been a part of Icelandic cuisine for over a thousand years. Our restaurant offers skyr both at breakfast and as a dessert on our a la carte menu.
The Northern lights (also known as Aurora Borealis) season in Iceland runs from late August through mid-April. These are the nights with darkness. The peak hours are between 23:00 (11pm) and 02:00 (2am), however, anytime it is dark and a clear sky there is hope. We have seen the Northern Lights at Hotel Rangá as early as 18:00 (6 pm) and as late as 09:00 (9 am). Press here for further information.
