Stay at Deplar Farm
Once an 18th-century sheep farm in the shadow of mountains, now a hidden gem cradled between towering snow-capped peaks. Try to place yourself within this magical rural scene, where service is outstanding and nature remains untamed.Picture yourself entirely at ease, with an itinerary as exhilarating or soothing as you make it. You can embark on a cycle tour through wild plains, for instance. Or simply surrender to the rhythm of your masseuse, as she cycles out knots with proven finesse. Come nightfall, savour private dining in a secret location, followed by drinks in the outdoor pool beneath Aurora Borealis’ vibrant dance.
Nestled in a remote valley along the mountainous Troll Peninsula, luxury doesn’t get more off-the-grid than this. The region that surrounds Fljót Valley is full of adventure. This is also the perfect spot for spectating the remarkable Northern Lights.
Only 13 stays make up this exclusively stylish boutique. Large windows look out onto marvellous grassy meadows. The interiors exude Icelandic charm throughout, creating a sophisticated sense of harmony between nature and lodge.
