The Eleven Experience group opened their third European property in April 2016, choosing Iceland as the home of Deplar Farm. Situated in remote valley in Northwest Iceland, surrounded by 3,000ft peaks, Deplar Farm is being transformed from a working sheep farm into the ultimate wilderness retreat.
For the skiers, Deplar offers an unbeatable experience. Enjoy immaculate powder soft slopes, getting dropped at a mountain peak by helicopter, and skiing all the way to the ocean shore. For the Fisher(wo)men, indulge in 'The Holkna Experience', the signature salmon fishing experience, accessible by helicopter from Deplar Farm. The Holkna river flows through northeast Iceland, and offers world-class Atlantic salmon fly-fishing, in glacial clear rivers.
Guests travelling in winter might also be able to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights, and those travelling in summer can also enjoy mountain biking, hiking, and sea kayaking. Back at base, Deplar Farm offers all the amenities of a 5* hotel, with an in-house chef, private concierge and chauffeurs, whilst activities are led by a team of expert guides.
