Hotel Rangá is located in the Icelandic countryside—far away from most light pollution. Temperatures typically average 40 degrees (C) to 50 degrees during the fall season, when the lights are at their peak in this area of the world.
This dream job consists of three weeks of chasing and capturing the lights from September to October. The photographer chosen for the job will be required to provide high-quality photos and videos, in order to receive all-expense-paid travel to and from Iceland.
“In exchange for providing content of the northern lights at the hotel, this seasonal employee will receive free room and board along with access to the hotel‘s stargazing observatory and hot tubs, not to mention the opportunity to explore the photogenic land of fire and ice on their days off,” the hotel wrote on its website.
The lights can appear at any time of the night and the hotel even has a so-called “aurora wake-up service” so guests don’t miss the lights.
