Welcome to the Nordic Natural Product Conference 2019 in Flúðir, Iceland

It has become a tradition for Nordic natural products scientists to meet every other year for a conference in one of the five Nordic countries. Ten years ago we met at Hotel Geysir in Iceland for a very successful meeting and now it is our turn again for NNPC 2019.

Natural product research is a broad, interdisciplinary field of science. It contributes with knowledge and understanding of nature’s clever solutions and chemical diversity, and as proven by many examples, may lead to commercial exploitation and drug development. Collaboration is the key to success and scientists need opportunities to meet and discuss their common interests.

NNPC 2019 will be held at Hotel Flúðir in southern Iceland, 1,5 hours drive from Reykjavik. The purpose of the conference is to learn about each other´s research projects, exchange knowledge and experience and last but not least, to get to know each other in a countryside atmosphere.

The organizing committee looks forward to meeting you in the bright Icelandic spring of 2019!

Flúðir and surroundings

Flúðir is a rapidly growing community in the centre of Hrunamannahreppur district, about 25 minutes off the main Ring Road.

The area is considered to be very fertile and beautiful. Litla-Laxá, a clear spring river runs through the village in an attractive basin. Miðfell, a small mountain, towers over Flúðir, and gives the surrounding area a distinctive look. Good walking and riding paths lie to the top of Miðfell. Up there you will find an impressive lake and from the top there is a great view over the area.

The main sources of employment in Flúðir are services, industry and horticulture. Geothermal heat is utilised for greenhouses, and here is the biggest mushroom factory in Iceland. The surrounding area is a popular location for summerhouses. Flúðir has excellent services available for visitors. Among those are a grocery store, a restaurant, a swimming pool, a camping ground, an information centre, a golf course, a horse rental, a bank, a post office and a small airfield. Close to Flúðir you will find Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir.

Read more about Flúðir and its surroundings at the Visit South Iceland website.

Conference Venue

Icelandair Hotel Fludir is a stylish hotel in the Icelandic countryside, only about an hour drive from Reykjavik. See route map from downtown Reykjavik to the hotel.

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 the 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 the 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.
