Between the craters and lava flows that punctuate the landscape, you will want to go all the way around Iceland because it is so fabulous. This land of adventures forces you to be permanently awake. Puffins, whales, seals will be the elements of the
local fauna and flora. But I think what I appreciated most was the total respect for nature on the part of the Icelandic
Travel to Iceland
Inside, comfortable antique leather armchairs stand in stark contrast to the wooden walls, while the bold glass fittings contrast sharply with the table carved from tree trunks. All of this is interrupted by pleasing subtle touches, such as locally mined amethyst and an impressive array of vinyls. Of course, the appeal of the accommodation is to discover the geological wonders of the Icelandic landscape, so knowledgeable local travel guides can plan unusual routes. Reaching this remote retreat is an adventure in itself, but don’t be discouraged as the Narnia-like surroundings are well worth it, the skies are so clear that you can see the Northern Lights even in winter.
Staying in Iceland
Deplar Farm is located in the northernmost part of Iceland, between two fjords, and is a paradise for thr
Its expedition plan will take your spirit of adventure to new heights. Advanced skiers can fly over the pristine white expanse in a helicopter and land on glaciers and volcanic ridges before starting to descend into the ocean. Some of the steep, snowy corridors are so difficult to access that they rarely (if ever) see skiers. When the helicopter is grounded due to changing weather conditions, you can also choose other options, such as taking a snowmobile trip on a huge glacial drift or biking around a mossy waterfall with thick tires.
Those who are not too adventurous will not be drawn to these exhilarating excursions and activities and can devote their afternoons to enjoying the hot springs. Back at the hotel, the guide will exchange the frozen clothes for a cup of steaming coffee. In the land of the trolls, the day begins with a huge farm table, where you can munch on Pönnukökur (Icelandic pancakes) against a backdrop of dark black and sky blue skies. Chef Garðar Garðarsson uses local and seasonal ingredients to prepare dishes, such as salmon caught in a nearby stream or lamb from the surrounding mountains. His luxurious three-course meals are both delicious and creative. The roasted wild goose basted with rich cranberry juice is absolutely incredible.
A Restaurant in Iceland
The resident sommelier is equally creative, offering intoxicating wines perfect for après-ski. Heading north, after a short and scenic drive, we’ll find Siglufjörður, a
quaint and charming little fishing town on the canal bay. Here, food has become the center of attention. At the Harbour House (Gránugata 5b, Siglufjörður; +354 659 4809), the menu features regional classics such as mild arctic char and invigorating sea stew, while the small Frida Café (frida.is) offers hot chocolate with cream. Don’t miss the opportunity to sample your own beer at Segull 67 (segull67.is
), a brewery converted from a warehouse.
Relaxation in Iceland
At Deplar, the pragmatic interior design aims to promote relaxation. Vacationers looking for a deeper adjustment can head to the mountain-facing spa; this flagstone-clad building has huge picture windows that frame the snowy landscape outside. Nothing can “lift” the body like a plunge pool surrounded by snow; in the evening, a sauna and gong bath will ensure absolute relaxation. Holidaymakers seeking mental clarity will appreciate the seclusion of one of the spa’s sensory floating rooms.For beginners, it’s a bit of a strange experience, but once you get used to it, it will be sacred. At dusk, lie back on a sheepskin-covered lounger and let the miracle of this dreamy guesthouse wash over you.

I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
