Nature is everywhere at Deplar Farm. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame the surrounding peaks, while throughout the home, you’ll find natural touches, like driftwood from the nearby sea and stone from the Fljótaá River. The library features Icelandic books, and local art adorns the living areas. The spa is a standout, with a grey stone hot tub, sauna, steam room, and two Isopod flotation tanks. Guests can alternate between our Viking sauna and the cold plunge, or soak under the Northern Lights in our open-air geothermal pool.
Built where an old sheep shed once stood, Deplar Farm is inspired by centuries-old Icelandic turf houses. We stayed true to many authentic architectural elements, but we’ve updated the living spaces for the modern traveler.
The wellness offerings at Deplar Farm are a highlight of any stay. The spa features an indoor/outdoor pool, indoor hot tub, sauna and steam shower, lounge area, three massage rooms, two isopod flotation tanks, and changing rooms. A therapist is always on call and various massage and spa treatments are available to combat jet lag, sports fatigue, or stress. Yoga classes and stretch classes can be organised year-round in our yoga room. A gym is equipped with cardio machines and weights and staff can pre-arrange personal training and CrossFit workouts. The indoor/outdoor geothermal pool, set at a soothing temperature, is where our guests spend the most free time. Hang out at the outdoor pool bar, swim under the sunlit nights, or spy the Northern Lights from the built in lounge area in this dramatic landscape.
A large bar area provides endless entertainment, including an oversized TV, pool table, foosball, darts, and, of course, cocktails. A wraparound deck overlooks the outdoor geothermal pool, the Viking sauna, the Fljótaá River, and the lake. The bar’s loft features a stage equipped with instruments and karaoke for guests who want to channel their inner rockstar.
The Lounge is located at the back of the bar, this stylish room is anchored by a large fireplace and framed by windows that soak in the surrounding mountain views. During fishing season, a fly-tying station is set up for guides to give guests instruction.
The dining room is framed by beautiful views during the day and takes on a romantic glow at night with a fireplace and dimmed lighting. Our Icelandic taxidermy bird collection, curated by a famous local senator, gives the room a museum-like quality.
Relax into our oversized couch and watch customised screenings from our projector, or your favourite shows on TV. Game consoles and a large gaming collection satisfies the kid in all of us, and guests can play their own material via Apple TV and Netflix.
Deplar’s “Control Tower” is where Eleven guides prep the day’s adventures and provide weather checks and guest briefings. If you forgot to pack an extra layer or sunglasses, our retail area has you covered with items from partner brands curated to Deplar Farm adventures. A flatscreen TV and meeting area can also be used for corporate retreats.
Individualised lockers are stocked with customised gear for any and all guest adventures, including personalised water bottles, sunscreen, and packs.
