In South Iceland, a short drive from the Golden Circle, Icelandair Hotel Fludir is an ideal stopover for those exploring the country. There’s an on-site restaurant serving local fare, two hot tubs from where guests can keep a lookout for the Northern Lights, and the rooms are comfortable.
It’s a quiet area but the nearby Secret Lagoon is a natural hot spring pool stays at 38-40°C all year round and is surrounded by geothermal spots that erupt at regular intervals. Anglers will also be impressed by the salmon fishing at the picturesque Stora Laxa, a short drive away. Those visiting the Golden Circle should get there early to beat the crowds. Geysir and Gullfoss Waterfall are a 30-minute drive, while Thingvellir is an hour away, and it’s a further 30 minutes to Reykjavik.
Back at the hotel, there are two hot tubs in the pretty garden that are accessible to guests 24 hours a day, and popular spots to watch the Northern Lights. The bar also looks out over the garden and there are views of the countryside and distant snow-capped mountains from the restaurant. This area is “known for its geothermal greenhouses that grow the majority of the country’s mushrooms” (Lonely Planet), and the menu focuses on local cuisine (try the cream mushroom soup). In the morning, breakfast is a buffet featuring porridge, waffles, scrambled eggs, local sausages, beans, cold meat and cheese, bread, jams, tea, coffee, and juice.
There are 32 rooms, which all have high ceilings, private access to the garden and a shower or bath. They are adequately sized, spacious and comfortable, with Icelandic art on the walls. Parking and Wi-Fi are free.
