Deplar Farm, a unique Icelandic lodge located in the remote Troll Peninsula near the Arctic Circle

Eleven’s renowned properties and experiences focus on customized adventures, sometimes in the middle of nowhere, but always include exquisite lodging and food. Formerly an 18th-century sheep farm locked in the wilderness of Fljot Valley within the mountainous Troll Peninsula in northern Iceland, Eleven’s Deplar Farm has been converted into a reminder of the possibilities of this century. This modern building still honours the authentic Icelandic architecture with 13 en-suite bedrooms with gorgeous dark-wood exteriors. However, here you can find adventure, solitude, mystery and unsurpassable luxury.

The Fljot valley sees some of the highest average snowfall on the planet but, being easily accessible from Europe and North America, Deplar Farm offers an entry into otherworldly landscapes without hours of tiresome travelling. As a result, the eastern road is closed all winter, making its remote locale all the more raw and wild.

Not only does the dining room at Deplar Farm offer fantastic views, but it serves up incredible dishes that reflect the natural surroundings. Boasting a farm-to-table ethos, fresh produce comes from nearby farmers and locally-sourced ingredients are used, creating delicious Icelandic cuisine with a contemporary twist. Complete with local craft beers, the dining experience at Deplar Farm provides guests with a real sense of place.

But the real reason you are here is to explore the incredible bespoke adventures. Although staying at Deplar Farm is an experience in itself, the activities arranged in the surrounding area will turn your holiday into a real adventure. Whether you visit in summer or winter, there is a wide range of experiences available, from a relaxing tour of geothermal hot springs to sea kayaking and whale watching. Guests looking for the ultimate frozen experience can try snowshoeing, dog sledding or snowmobiling, while during the summer guests can make full use of the ample daylight and try fly fishing, horse riding and even surfing. After an exhilarating day exploring, unwind in Deplar Farm’s spa with a relaxing treatment or simply enjoy the view from the pools.

UNIQUE SERVICES & EXPERIENCES
– Indoor/outdoor swimming pool, heated to 38 degrees from thermal springs with a built-in sound system and a bar that even comes with a remote-controlled boat so the barman can motor drinks directly across to guests.

– Deplar Farm also offers an entertainment room fitted with Karaoke and a full band set up for late night jamming sessions. kitted out with electric guitars, a piano and various other musical instruments.

– The Eleven team go above and beyond to create personalized and memorable experiences for every group whether it’s playing frisbee golf, creating an après ski party in the snow to organizing an elaborate game of laser tag on skis against the staff.


HIGHLIGHT
Limber up with private or group yoga sessions; choose from ashtanga, kundalini, easy flow and family-style. All sessions end with a spot of relaxation and reflection. Surfers should note that although it’s possible to catch ice-cold waves at certain times of year, riding waves is dependent on Northern Iceland’s ever-changing weather.
