There’s little denying that the breathtaking Nordic island of Iceland is one of the most beautiful countries to visit in the world.
One way to experience a taste of authentic Iceland is to stay at the Deplar Farm. Located in a remote area of Iceland called the northern Troll Peninsula, this farm offers a different kind of experience than what you’ll see on most people’s social media feeds.
Opened in 2016 by the Eleven Experience Group, Deplar Farm is surrounded by mountain peaks. It is situated in a valley that runs towards the Atlantic Ocean. This area of Iceland gets some of the highest snowfall in the country.
Deplar Farm is the ultimate resort for adventure seekers. The slopes that surround the hotel provide some of the most challenging yet exhilarating snowboarding and skiing. There are many things to do close to the resort, including mountain biking, heli-skiing, salmon fishing, kayaking and hiking.
The hotel itself was once a working sheep farm. It has now been transformed into a 5-star hotel that offers all of the amenities that you would find at a typical luxury property, including a private concierge and chef.
Hotel amenities include a yoga studio, high-end gym and massage studios. There is also a whirlpool and infinity pool that is heated to 37-degrees Celsius. This pool is the perfect place to sit and stare at the Northern Lights.
Other resort features include a media room with large screen, saltwater flotation tanks and a bar with pool table. Guests can also borrow a pair of telescopic binoculars to look at the surrounding scenery.
