The Northern Lights Catchers

In winter, Hotel Rangá is the perfect place to view the Northern Lights due to the hotel’s remote location which is away from the light pollution of city lights and the hotel has a view observatory, housing two high-quality astronomical telescopes.

Last summer, Hotel Rangá put out a call for its first official Northern Lights sensor. They offered talented photographers from all over the world the chance to win an epic trip to Iceland to stay at Hotel Rangá for a month to capture the aurora. They received almost 5,000 applications from over 50 countries, delighted with the positive feedback that they decided to offer the job not just to one photographer but to two.

The photographers chosen for the Northern Lights position were Paige Deasey, a Canadian university student who grew up decently in a town called Aurora, and Stefan Liebermann, a German professional photographer specializing in night sky photography.
