The entire hotel is made of imported logs and so cozy. We had a deluxe room that was large with a huge bathroom and huge whirlpool tub. There are also several outdoor hot tubs that face a meandering river. Big, fluffy bathrobes are provided so you can make it to the hot tub in comfort.
The hotel has one of the best stocked bars I have ever seen. The chef is very good. The menu is excellent and should satisfy any gourmand. We enjoyed a dinner with Frethrik, the owner, one evening and had a delightful meal.
We put our name on the list to be awakened to see the Northern Lights but had no luck. But we are already planning our next trip back to the Hotel Ranga. We want to do another longer glacier walk and go scuba diving.
