At Hotel Rangá, we pride ourselves on being a green hotel in Iceland. We constantly update our policies to ensure that we keep up to date with the latest technologies and advances in green initiatives.
Renewable energy sources
Hotel Rangá utilizes only renewable and green energy sources. In fact, all electricity for the hotel’s operations comes from a nearby hydroelectric power station. What’s more, all of our hot water for heating the buildings and other needs comes from a nearby geothermal power station.
Going green in Iceland: Hotel Rangá prioritizes local materials
We strive to use local, raw materials. For example, the numerous greenhouses in South Iceland supply us with fresh vegetables year-round. In addition, we source salmon, arctic char, seafood and meat from local farms and fishermen. Furthermore, all the meat and dairy products we use are free of hormones or antibiotics. We sort all our waste to minimize impact on nature. In fact, our staff takes home much of the food waste to feed their farm animals.

Our pillowcases and duvet covers get a second life at nearby village Hella’s elementary school. The children learn how to sew by making small bags for the yule lads out of the bed linens and the yule lads then use the bags to give our guests small treats.
Energy & plastic
We have already switched out all our light bulbs for more energy efficient ones. What’s more, we are also decreasing our use of plastic – switching plastic straws to paper and plastic laundry bags to linen ones. Furthermore, we recently revamped our lunch boxes and now they are entirely biodegradable. We will soon have to-go cups with biodegradable lids and we try to limit all printing by using electronic communications and billing.

Going green in Iceland: Hotel Rangá chooses quality & durability
We choose our furniture well. Rather then follow the winds of fashion we choose design that’s consistent with the spirit of Hotel Rangá, focusing on quality and durability. When something breaks we fix it rather than throw it away.
Nature is the world’s greatest luxury and we will continue to do our best to protect it.
