The DNA: Hotel Rangá is located on the southern coast of the island, two hours from Reykjavík — which, in Iceland, means you’re in pretty much the middle of nowhere. With a volcano behind it and the sea in front of it, it’s not hurting for scenery, but it’s at night that the Rangá really shines — during the Northern Lights there’s hardly a better place on earth from which to see them. We are not great fans of ‘themed’ rooms, but strangely enough the African Safari, Rocky Mountain Lodge, Igloo and Japanese rooms seem to work over here.
