Hotel Rangá is a luxury countryside hotel. It is the only 4-star resort in South Iceland. It offers all the facilities and services of a modern resort, plus a few more. Located about an hour’s drive from Reykjavik, between the towns of Hella and Hvolsvöllur, it lies just off the main road right in the middle of South Iceland’s panoramic scenery.
The resort is built in log-cabin style. Through the years it has acquired an excellent reputation for gourmet food, accommodation and service. It is the first Icelandic hotel to become a member of the prestigious international hotel chain Great Hotels of the world. Hotel Rangá is a celebrity hot spot, top honeymoon destination and favourite hotel amongst Icelanders both winter and summer. It also offers great facilities for small business meetings, weddings and social gatherings. In addition, it is well located for adventure tours and various attractions, including Eyjafjallajökull, the Golden Circle and the Glacier Lagoon (Jökulsárlón).
Entering its warm interior, you will feel welcome. The hotel blends relaxed countryside feeling with the staff’s professional ambition to please all our clientele. At Hotel Rangá’s lobby, the 10-foot-tall polar bear, named Hrammur, greets you. He is a favourite model for photos and is definitely one of the most photographed objects in Iceland. This is just a prelude to the relaxing ambience throughout the hotel.
