Hotel Rangá Observatory is located only 5-minutes from our hotel. On most clear nights we offer guided tours of the night sky with Iceland’s leading astronomy-experts, Sævar Helgi Bragason. Pictures from Hotel Rangá Observatory say more than a thousand words.
Northern Lights & Stargazing
Stargazing just became more accessible in Iceland with the recent opening of a brand new observatory at the fabulous ranch-style, Hotel Ranga. Situated in the south west of Iceland with sweeping views of the surrounding Icelandic countryside, the skies have excellent clarity here with virtually no light pollution. The observatory itself has a retractable roof offering a 360 degree view of the night sky with no trees or large buildings in the way.
