Given Iceland’s astronomical tourism boom, Deplar is perfectly positioned as the island’s top property. Located on the Troll Peninsula, this modern lodge is a nod to the local landscape and Icelandic architecture. Here adventure is right on your doorstep. Watch the Northern Lights from an outdoor, geothermal infinity pool after a day of summit-to-sea heli-skiing, ski touring, or snowmobiling.
Tackling untracked descents on Iceland’s Arctic maritime snowpack is for both the hard charger and the smooth cruiser. Sea-to-summit has never looked this good. Think vast valleys that scream for first tracks. Massages back at Deplar are a must, as you’ll want to push your ski legs to max output the next day. If the weather turns and it starts dumping, during no-fly weather days you just go cat skiing or hot spring hopping.
Strategically located between Europe and the States, Iceland and Deplar offer easy access to otherworldly landscapes without hours of traveling. New York and London-based clients can be fishing or skiing on the same day of travel. The only question here is, “What’s your call to action?”
Deplar is a converted sheep farm, situated in the remote Fljot valley in the mountainous Troll Peninsula in northern Iceland. Today’s modern structure celebrates a rugged past, and honours authentic Icelandic architecture with 13 en-suite bedrooms.
It’s a one-stop-shop for adventure, solitude, mystery, and high-end amenities. The Fljot valley sees some of the highest average snowfall on the planet. As a result, the eastern route to Deplar is closed all winter, making its remote locale all the more raw and wild.
Deplar Farm might just be the most beautiful luxury lodge in the World and is made for lounging. Every room brings the outdoors in—floor-to-ceiling windows frame the mountains and often showcase lines from guests’ hard-earned heli-ski turns. Think stone sourced from local rivers, black timber cladding, and a grass-sodded roof.
The indoor-outdoor, geothermal infinity pool, set at a soothing 38/39 degrees Celsius, is where guests spend most free time. Hang out at the outdoor pool bar, swim under the sunlit nights or spy the Northern Lights in this dramatic landscape.
WHAT WILL YOUR TRIP LOOK LIKE?
Heli-Skiing in Iceland is an unforgettable experience. Long descents over the North Atlantic Ocean are punctuated by never ending sunsets. Limitless terrain ignites new exploration in even the most seasoned of skiers. Long daylight hours allow us to choose the best time of day to ski given the weather and snow conditions. Runs average 3,000 vertical feet. Think huge couloirs and vast valleys that are just awaiting your tracks.
Early season and stormy periods equal powder skiing in a maritime climate, while long sunny days transition the snow into perfect corn skiing. Skiing, however, is just part of the Icelandic adventure. Sea kayaking in the fjords, riding the famed Icelandic horses, whale watching, puffin chasing, surfing and exploring the unique volcanic terrain of the world’s youngest land mass are also on tap. Add the fact that hot springs are around nearly every corner make Iceland a bucket-list destination.
