Hotel Rangá Location

Hotel Rangá is a countryside hotel perfectly located to explore all the wonders of South Iceland. We highly recommend that you drive your own car or rental car for your convenience. We offer free parking in front of the hotel as well as free charging for electric cars.  The hotel does not offer a scheduled shuttle bus service to and from the Reykjavík capital area or the international airport, but we can assist with booking transportation to and from the hotel. Transport via Super Jeeps, taxis, limousines, and helicopters can also be arranged. A public bus service from Reykjavík is also an option, but the schedule is rather limited. The best option by far, both economically and to get the most out of your visit to South Iceland, is to hire a rental car.
