The new year has greeted us with exceptionally beautiful (but cold) weather and some wonderful Northern light displays. When packing for your stay, think in freezing temperatures: building snowmen, hiking up frozen hills to view waterfalls and feeling the cold nibble at your cheeks as you take in the night sky. Also, think like an Icelander and eat plenty of good food.

For Katrín Sigurðardóttir of Icelandic Horseworld, horses are a way of life. Actually, they are a way of life for her whole family. “It is really the only thing my parents ever did, work around horses and raise horses. We’ve talked about horses everyday my whole life,” she says with a laugh. “I’ve often wondered if I even have any friends who aren’t into horses – I don’t think so.”
If you are from the US, or certain European countries, you might have noticed Icelandic water for sale in the supermarket. In Iceland, you will also probably notice Icelandic water for sale in the supermarket. Of course, bottled water is great in places where water quality is poor but in Iceland you are better off saving your money.
Five Take Flight share their Rangá experience
The Tillotson family doesn’t settle for your average family holiday. In 2017, parents Derek and Kenzie sold their Utah home to bring big brother Porter, funny man Beckett, and little sister Wren on the adventure of a lifetime, traveling to 38 countries in 54 weeks. And what was their first international stop? Well Iceland of course!
Dear friends of Hotel Rangá: Happy new year!
We are always happy to welcome a new year and the new beginnings it brings but this year is especially exciting since it marks Hotel Rangá’s 20-year anniversary. This calls for a year-long celebration of course and we thought we’d recommend some ways to start the year of on the right foot.
