A peaceful day at the Rangá river

Updated: Sep 6, 2018

The banks of the Rangá river offer the most tranquil of settings with panoramic views of the famous volcanoes Mt. Hekla, Eyjafjallajökull, Þríhyrningur (an extinct volcano) and the Westman Islands in the distance.



Take a gentle stroll along the river and experience a profound sense of peace and stillness, the perfect antidote to our hectic modern lifestyles. Wander past swathes of wild lupins and spot the architectural stems of angelica growing in harmony with grasses, heathers and moss. Listen out for birdsong and enjoy the beauty of migrating geese, ducks and swans as they elegantly drift along in the flow of the Rangá’s steady stream.


Spend a little more time taking in the atmosphere of the Rangá river by enjoying a picnic prepared by Hotel Rangá’s chefs. Ask at reception the day before and a picnic will be arranged especially for you.
