Iceland Hotel Ranga sees positive press in the Financial Times

Northern-lights-Hotel-Ranga-Small12In a recent article published on the Financial Times website, journalist Sophy Roberts shares her experiences of ‘Off the Tourist Trail in Iceland’, which involves her search for the notorious Northern Lights. This is good, positive exposure for Iceland, Iceland tourism and in particularly Hotel Ranga, located in the South East of Iceland.

In the article, Roberts talks about her three-night stay in Hotel Ranga and all the unique experiences she embarked upon during her search for the ‘magnificent’ Northern Lights. She expresses the perfect location of the hotel as it is off the main tourist trail and about a 75-minute drive away from the bright city lights of Reykjavik – making the hotel’s beautiful isolation ‘ideal for viewing the Northern Lights’.

In addition to this, Roberts also travelled to the Westmann Islands off the South coast of Iceland where she experienced some other Icelandic traditions; such as trying oak-smoked puffin served with blueberry compote, and old Icelandic story telling with local fisherman.

Hotel Ranga is currently offering the opportunity to experience the adventures that Roberts talks about in her Financial Times article with a three-night “Aurora Nights” package deal throughout March. The package deal includes car hire and return flights with Icelandair. Even though visibility is not a guarantee, Hotel Ranga claim that the Northern Lights are usual visible for at least one night.
