On arrival to the airport you’ll pick up the rental car and start your journey towards Hella and Hotel Ranga. Upon entering Hotel Ranga, you will be greeted by a towering 10-foot tall polar bear named Hrammur that resides in the lobby. This is just a prelude to the cozy ambience that you will encounter that vibrates throughout the hotel.
The only 4 star hotel in South Iceland, Hotel Ranga is also famous for its mouth watering cuisine so be sure to try Icelandic delicacies while there! Close to the hotel are Dyrholaey bird cliffs and black sand beaches and Skogafoss waterfall which you can explore on your own on day 2. You can even order a picnic basket from the hotel and have a romantic picnic outdoors! Day 3 you’ll drive to Reykjavik.
