Crossroads of the Hidden People
Hótel Glymur‘s road to success was not an easy one however as some claim that the beginning stages were plagued by supernatural events. It turned out that the hotel was built on the crossroads between lands of elves and the hidden people and to make things worse it was done without consulting them. A cloud of bad luck seemed to hover over the building for many years until the current proprietors took over the business. They soon found out the cause for the long run of bad luck and through psychic assistance, negotiated with their unseen neighbours. Today the hotel business is blooming and everything is done in cooperation with the hidden people – although the proprietors have never disclosed the details of the negotiations.
Close by the hotel you’ll find the Elven trail, where rumour has it you can even contact the elves through a certain ceremony which the hotel staff will undoubtedly help you with.
