The bountiful south Iceland
Natural wonders and fresh food in beautiful surroundings.
Icelandair Hotel Fludir is a stylish hotel in the Icelandic countryside, only about an hour drive from Reykjavik. While there are unique wonders of nature all around, three national parks are nearby: Gullfoss, Geysir and Þingvellir. Together, these make up the Golden Circle, a gem of Southern Iceland and easily accessible from Icelandair Hotel Fludir. At our restaurant, enjoy fresh vegetables and other local ingredients close to the source. South Iceland has adventures waiting nearby for everyone, whether it is visiting the greenhouses, fishing for salmon or horseback riding on Icelandic ponies, you can be sure to find something for everyone. When the adventures are done for the day, grab a bite and a drink from our bar and grill and head over to the garden to relax. In the garden, you can enjoy a tranquil evening soaking in a geothermal heated hot tub or cozied up with a blanket by the fireplace, under dancing northern lights or the midnight sun. It’s not a typical hotel experience, it is a night to remember.
Fludir - fresh vegetables all year round
Fludir is the mecca of Icelandic vegetable cultivation, using geothermal heat in greenhouses to grow fresh vegetables year round. Fludir is specially known for this since the geothermal energy here lets us cultivate all year round. This has been practiced for years and years at Fludir.
It is so much fun to walk around the greenhouses and experience the local life at Fludir through their main industry and work. Magga, the hotel manager of Icelandair Hotel Fludir sometimes offers to take a walk with hotel guests around the area and tell exciting stories of vegetable cultivation in Fludir as well as of the life of locals.
The restaurant at Icelandair Hotel Fludir only uses fresh vegetables from Fludir for their dishes, all year round so you can be sure to be getting the freshest vegetables in Iceland.
