Nestled in the Fljot valley in the picturesque landscape of Iceland’s Troll Peninsula, this charming hotel brings its guests into the middle of a natural wonderland. Deplar Farm is the latest resort opened by Colorado-based Eleven Experience. A converted old sheep farm, the modern hotel celebrates traditional Icelandic architecture via modern design. It also maintains the rustic aesthetic of the place, creating the right balance between rugged and refined. On the exterior, the building features a Scandinavian grass-sodded roof, black timber cladding, as well as local river stone. The décor of the 13 rooms combines comfort and simplicity with modern but understated furniture. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide incredible views over the surrounding wilderness, framing the snow-covered mountains and waterways.
Guests staying at Deplar Farm have access to a wide range of activities, from skiing and fishing to snowmobiling and hiking. The outdoor geothermal infinity pool offers the perfect opportunity to relax while admiring the unforgettable spectacle of the Northern Lights. If you want to experience all that, head over to the hotel’s website. Keep in mind that since the area receives one of the highest snowfalls during winter, Deplar Farm becomes truly cut off from the rest of the world. A perfect ski getaway for those who wish to forget the fast pace of urban living for a few days. Photographs© Eleven Experience.
