The Lodge

about the property

The Fljót Valley in northern Iceland is a gateway for adventures ranging from mountain biking to sea kayaking. Located on a converted sheep farm, Deplar Farm blends into the natural landscape with its black timber cladding and grass-sodded roof, and the floor-to-ceiling windows around the property that embrace the surrounding peaks.

Iceland’s midnight sun means long summer days and endless opportunity for outdoor activities including prime-time fly fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and more. We, at Eleven Experience, have access to some of the most exclusive rivers in Iceland. The Fljótaá, a world-class Atlantic salmon and Arctic char river, is in our backyard.

Further away, we have two cabins along our eight-mile stretch of the two-rod Hölkna River so guests can overnight steps from the fishery. Back at the lodge, many guests choose to spend entire days in our spa, hopping from the geothermal-heated outdoor pool to the hot tub.

In Iceland, sheep outnumber humans by more than 2:1. Although this is true, this does not suppress the importance we put on the health and safety of our guests and employees. Deplar Farm is intimate in size and freestanding by design and is designed to get our guests out to explore the abundant and breathtaking landscapes that surround the lodge. For information on the steps we are taking to protect the health and safety of our guests and employees, please visit our COVID-19 Update Page.
