Is this the ultimate adventure retreat in Iceland?

By LLM Reporters on 26th November 2019

Hidden in the depths of Northern Iceland sits a supremely luxurious retreat nestled with the remote Fljót valley.

Surrounded by 3,000 ft peaks, Deplar Farm, a former sheep farm, exudes natural charm, while featuring beautiful local materials such as stone from nearby rivers, black timber and grass roofs. This stunning valley sees some of the highest average snowfall in the world, making it a perfect skiing destination and, with a luxurious spa, heli-skiing and in-house chefs, this retreat couldn’t be more exclusive or heavenly if it tried.

Ideal for families or groups, Deplar Farm has twelve stunning suites and one bunk room. The luxe interior scheme has a cool, neutral palette with subtle pops of colour, while the living area has floor-to-ceiling windows for guests to soak up the impressive views of the mountains.

Each sumptuous bedroom features remote-control blackout blinds and soothing playlists, to ensure you’ll drift off peacefully, especially during those bright Icelandic summer nights.

Mind-blowing activities

The possibilities for adventure here are endless; the cabin lodgings feature two helipads, ready to whisk the adrenalin junkies of the group off at a moment’s notice. Heli-skiing means no ski-lifts, no queues, just you and the unspoilt vastness of this rugged wonderland.

After a day of adventure, there are plenty of ways to unwind, including a steam room, indoor and outdoor saunas, hot tubs, flotation tanks and yoga. There is also a masseuse on hand to soothe aching limbs from an active day out on the slopes. And don’t miss the opportunity to swim under the Northern Lights in the geothermal indoor/outdoor pool and watch the sky come alive.
