Deplar Farm, an exclusive lodge for adventurers in the north of Iceland
Nestled in a remote valley in the sparsely populated north of Iceland, Deplar Farm is a one-of-a-kind lodge that welcomes intrepid adventurers in search of the most singular experiences on the planet. As luxurious as it is isolated, the hotel is the essence of Scandinavian simplicity, with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame jaw-dropping vistas and plenty of animal skin rugs and cosy blankets to add just the right dose of hygge.
The real treat is the Icelandic wilderness, however, where fire, ice, and the Northern Lights are just the trimmings. The hotel’s toy room is equipped with all the gear one could need for an adrenaline-pumping activity. Winter visitors are drawn by the exhilarating heli-skiing that takes one literally from the summit to sea, and the possibility of carving the first tracks through pure powder, whilst in summer one can picnic beside waterfalls, spot breaching whales, surf solitary waves and go salmon fishing in the cold, clear mountain streams.
