Oddi, in the fields of the Rangá river, is a major historic site. It first became famous around the middle of the 11th Century, when a church was built there, and thus is one of the oldest church sites in Iceland. It was a scholar, political and cultural center for centuries. The current Oddi church was erected in 1924 and has recently been comprehensively restored to a very intimate and romantic place of worship. Hotel Rangá offers wedding packages where your ceremony takes place in this historic and cozy church in beautiful surroundings and then taken to the hotel for your reception.
