Luxury watches by JS Watch Co.
Upon your arrival at Hotel Rangá, you will find two beautifully handcrafted Gilbert watches in your room. JS Watch Co.—Iceland’s first and only watch manufacturer—makes these luxury watches under the leadership of master watchmaker Gilbert O. Gudjonsson. Every timepiece is designed and assembled by hand in the company’s workshop in Reykjavík.
The Gilbert watch is named after the master watchmaker himself, Gilbert O. Gudjonsson. With over 50 years of experience, Gilbert has seen styles change and evolve over the years. His favorite timepieces date from the 1950’s and 60’s, and the Gilbert vintage watch is inspired by styles of this era. Each watch features a Swiss made mechanical movement “Execution Top,” custom decorations, 25 jewels, blue screws and a rhodium plated finish. Produced in limited quantities and assembled by hand, these beautiful watches are truly one of a kind.
Private excursions with South Coast Adventure
Included in our luxury package are private day tours and adventures in south Iceland from local tour operator South Coast Adventure. We can tailor every tour to suit your tastes and desires. Hop in a super jeep with an expert guide and drive up into the Icelandic highlands for a luxury picnic and a soak in a geothermal hot spring. Or take a day trip to the Westman Islands and explore this secluded secret just off Iceland’s south coast.
South Coast Adventure runs tours to the south coast’s top spots but also its most hidden gems. If fast-paced adventure is more your style, we recommend a private buggy tour across a black sand beach. Get the ultimate adrenaline rush as you zoom across the black sands, only to stop for a cozy cup of hot chocolate. Or tour an ice cave with a champagne toast underneath the ancient blue ice.

Tour the sky with a local astronomer
Iceland is known for its epic northern lights and incredible starry skies in the winter. However, it is also notable for its bright midnight sun that shines during the summer months. At Hotel Rangá, we have our one of a kind Rangá Observatory that houses two high-tech telescopes. Visitors to the observatory are able to peer through the excellent scopes to get a detailed view of far-off stars and planets.
For an extra special touch, when you book Hotel Rangá’s Ultra Luxury Package, you will receive a private session in our Rangá Observatory with a local astronomer. If you visit during the wintertime, you’ll get a guided tour of the night sky. Explore distant galaxies and learn about constellations, planets and so much more. Book our Ultra Luxury Package in the summer, and you will experience a sun-gazing session underneath the magical midnight sun.
The Caves of Hella: Underground fine dining
Did you know that there are mysterious man-made caves just minutes from Hotel Rangá? Walking underground and touring the Caves of Hella is a totally unique experience. Theories abound regarding why and when they were created, but no one knows for sure. But we have found a way to make your visit even more exclusive.
When you book Hotel Rangá’s Ultra Luxury Package, you will enjoy a gourmet chef’s dinner in the Caves of Hella. Indulge in this delicious meal under the light of hundreds of candles softly glowing throughout the caves. What’s more, you will enjoy this experience alongside a local whiskey and beer tasting. This magical setting is the perfect location for a romantic dinner for two.
Ultra luxury package: Personal photographer
Photographs are an essential part of travel – they help us to remember our experiences and share good times with friends and family back home. Hotel Rangá’s special Ultra Luxury Package includes a personal photographer to capture your time in Iceland. They will snap photos of your outdoor adventures and private tours. For couples, enjoy a romantic shoot below local waterfalls and beside glacial rivers. Capture your memories of Iceland with professional photos that will last a lifetime.
