A Taste of Luxury in Southern Iceland

September 20, 2011

Hotel Ranga, one of the world’s top destinations for viewing the Aurora Borealis and Southern Iceland’s only 4 star resort, has everything you could possibly want for a relaxing stay in the countryside, not to mention an outstanding dining room and extremely friendly service from everyone. The hotel’s rustic luxury accomodations sit on wide open land overlooking the East Ranga River. Their chef prepared his modern Nordic cuisine with local ingredients of only the freshest quality, and brought out a beautiful array of dishes. ¬†Although the weather conditions weren’t conducive to check out the Northern Lights, on the positive side, it’s just one more reason for me to start planning my return trip.

    We just thought of a dozen ideas for side dishes for fish because of these fabulous (droolworthy) pictures. It seems like Iceland is THE destination for seafood for luxury gastronomy. We’re googling Hotel Ranga at this very moment…hopefully we can hunt down their risotto recipe somewhere!
