Hotel Ranga

Set in the meadowland that skirts Iceland’s southern coastline against a backdrop of Mount Hekla, the Ranga started life as a private fishing lodge alongside its eponymous salmon laden river. Over the years, under the tutelage of owner Fredrik Paulsson and guidance of former manager Björn Nygårds Kers, it’s morphed into something of a legend with twin & de-luxe rooms ranging in size from 18 to 26 sq.m, outdoor hot tubs, a bar with deep leather armchairs & sofas (and some idiosyncratic bar stools); billiard rooms, and a World Pavillion with suites themed around the seven continents. Rooms have everything you need including flat screen TV; free Wi-Fi ; telephone; bathtub or shower, hairdryer, bathrobes and slippers; minibar; coffee and tea-maker; 24 hour room service, laundry and wake up service. Centre stage in the hotel’s restaurant is a signature Surf & Turf dish translated into a herbaceous roast lamb paired with meaty, buttery steamed lobster, and a skyr dessert that’s to die for. Never one to let meadow land grass grow under his feet(!), Fredrik recently oversaw the building of an observatory with two 11-inch Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain computerized telescopes from which you can see even the detail of Saturn’s rings. And of course, the hotel’s remote location is ideal for catching the Northern Lights for which the hotel offers a night time alert system. Notwithstanding everything that’s gone on here over the years the hotel has kept its very personal owner driven style and ambience.

Foss Hotel Glacier Lagoon

In Hnappavellir mid way between Skaftafell and the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, the new and locally designated 4 star Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon is a unique combi of edgy design and  traditional Icelandic features, notably the grass roof. The fabrics, furnishing and style of all 100 or so rooms pay homage to volcanic colours: muted greys, steel, black and a variety of in between hues. Most importantly the hotel is a stone's throw from the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and stands in vast open plains ideal for spotting the Northern Lights and if you see them reflected on the Lagoon's surface you'll think you've died and gone to heaven.
