Husband and wife, Gudmundur Sigurhansson and Margret Runolfsdottir - or Gummi and Magga as they are often called - have been the managers of the Icelandair Hotel Fludir since 2001. They both have decades of experience in the hospitality and hotel business. Gummi is a chef but his hobbies revolve around cars and football, Arsenal being his favourite team. Magga’s main hobby is bridge and she attends the Hrunamanna Bridge Club once a week for "practice."
As a couple their main interest is horses, and two of these creatures – Staell and Hugur - considered some of the best thoroughbreds in Iceland, are kept in stables at Langholtskot in Fludir. Their favorite Icelandic artist is Tolli. In fact, the Hotel Fludir boasts of the largest private collection of Tolli's artwork, which you'll find hanging in all the common areas. Gummi and Magga agree that it is hard to choose just one favourite place in the nearby surroundings but mention that Laxargljufur canyon is probably at the top of their list because of its magnificent views. Another favorite, is the local natural hot spring which is just a 5 minute walk from the hotel.
The town Fludir grows more vegetables and fruits than any other region of Iceland, so it is no surprise to discover that all ingredients used at the hotel restaurant are fresh, totally organic and delivered daily from the greenhouses around the establishment. The Hotel Fludir also serves locally-grown, organic beef from the Langholtskot farm.
As always, Magga and Gummi extend a warm welcome to all their guests at the Icelandair Hotel Fludir.
