In today’s calendar, Góa falls in the month of March. March in Iceland is a time when days are getting longer but the temperatures are quite low. In Iceland, we can still see the northern lights in March as long as there are clear skies and solar activity.

Soak it all in
We recently started providing our guests with bath salts from Angan skincare. Angan means fragrance, a fitting name for these lovely bath salts. They are produced with surplus salt from the same Icelandic manufacturer that makes the sea salt we use in our kitchen. Angan’s ingredients are sustainably sourced, vegan, handcrafted, and free from harmful compounds. Ask about the salts at our front desk and then enjoy your fragrant detox.

Buns, bombs, and ash
We have three big days that occur during March in Iceland: Bun-day (March 4th), Fat-Tuesday or “bomb-day” (March 5th), and Ash-Wednesday (March 6th). Icelandic children used to hang bags of ash on people’s clothes on ash Wednesday, but these days they dress up in costumes a la Halloween and receive candy from shop owners for singing.
On Fat Tuesday Icelanders stuff themselves with salted meat and lentil-soup until their stomachs “blow.” Then, Bun Day is the time to eat puff pastries filled with jam, cream, chocolate, and whatever else.
Keep an eye out for something sweet around Hotel Rangá this Monday and make sure no one whacks you with a bun-stick or you’ll owe them a pastry.
March in Iceland: Northern lights
Northern lights season is still in full swing during March in Iceland. To see the northern lights we need solar activity, clear skies and dark nights. Hotel Rangá is the best northern lights hotel in south Iceland. In fact, we even offer a northern lights wake-up service. We will call your room during the night whenever the northern lights should appear.
