Hotel Ranga – Fantastic luxury hotel.. from the minute we drove up the drive we just knew we were going have a wonderful time and we were right. Very friendly staff warm cosy and romantic room with a hot tube just outside our patio door from our lovely Swiss style accommodation. We made use of all the facilities which included a lovely bar which had happy hour from 4 – 6.30, the hot tub and a fantastic restaurant with amazing food. At the start of our meal the owner came round every table to introduce himself and give us the a update of the chances of seeing the Northern lights that night, we were told that the there was a very good chance and would be phone call during the night if and when they appeared. We didn’t have to wait long while waiting to order our desert the owner announced the Lights were out….the restaurant emptied in seconds as everyone including myself dash for coats and cameras , we were treated to 2.5 hour of a stunning display in the calm night sky. This was the reason for our 8 day self-drive trip to Iceland and we felt very privilege to witness this natural phenomenon. The breakfast in the morning was varied and plentiful.
