Gauksmýri Lodge was established by Jóhann Albertsson and his wife Sigríður Lárusdóttir in 1999.
Both Jóhann and Sigríður had been breeding horses together for about 16 years before that time and also individually before that. In 2006 they opened a new guesthouse with 18 rooms with private bathroom as well as a large dining room and a reception area.
Sigríður fought cancer for many years but lost her battle in November 2015. Now Jóhann owns the company together with his children Albert & Hrund and his son-in-law Gunnar Páll.
Hrund and Gunnar Páll moved to Gauksmýri in
January 2016 together with their newborn daughter Hekla Sigríður.
Gunnar Páll is now the CEO of Gauksmýri EHF. Gunnar Páll & Hrund manage the company while Jóhann has stepped aside and is now more involved with farm work and horse breeding.
Albert is living in Reykjavík studying business at the University of Iceland.
