IcelandQuote Your Trip
Former home to a drove of hardy Icelandic sheep, luxury stay Deplar Farm and its turf-camouflaged rooftop conceal cosy suites, a stylish spa, restaurant and play space, all with views of the surrounding ice-sloped mountains and sprawling wilderness of the magical Troll Peninsula. There’s no need to learn the Icelandic for 'may I have the bill, please': all meals are included, and feature dishes such as locally-caught trout and Icelandic char. Some adventures are gratis, too: pull on your best boots – be they of the trekking, skiing or horse-riding variety – by day, then shake off the snow and cosy up by the fire, or float in the open-air pool (don’t worry, it’s heated by geothermal energy) under the midnight sun’s golden glow, or – if you’re lucky – the eerie green and purple of the Northern Lights.
