ARCTIC ADVENTURES ICELAND

Start your luxury tour of Iceland by discovering the incredible natural highlights of Southern Iceland, using a private villa as your base. From looming snow-covered volcanoes to elegant waterfalls and serene glaciers, the south of Iceland offers unforgettable outdoor wonders. Embark on adrenaline-filled excursions, including snowmobiling, glacier trekking, and even snorkeling/scuba diving between tectonic plates. Next, continue your journey north to the outdoor winter playground of the Troll Peninsula, home to the luxurious Deplar Farm. In this polar paradise, you may revel in many arctic adventures, from dog sledding to nordic skiing, hiking, and even biking through the vast glacial carved valleys. Finally, there’s no better way to finish a luxury Iceland tour than with a cleansing stay at the iconic Blue Lagoon.

The next day, head to the Sólheimajökull Glacier, where you will embark on a private trek across the glacier itself, accompanied by your specialized guide. During this unforgettable trek across the other-worldly surface of the glacier, marvel at the incredible glacial landscape and learn more about how the glacier was formed and shaped into what it is today.

Northern Iceland (3 nights)

Accompanied by your personal guide, depart Southern Iceland by private transfer to Reykjavik airport for your domestic flight to the seaside town of Akureyri, located in the north of Iceland. Upon your arrival, you will begin your exploration of this region with a private whale watching tour through the Eyjafjörður fjord. Your trained guide is an expert at spotting these cetaceans and will teach you all about their behaviors and migration patterns. After the tour, continue by private transfer to Deplar Farm, located in the Fljót Valley of the Troll Peninsula.

During your stay at Deplar Farm, you will have the chance to enjoy a variety of experiences throughout the Troll Peninsula accompanied by your personal expert guide. This region of northern Iceland is geologically fascinating thanks to the glaciers that carved its landscape. It is home to the most extensive continuous mountain range in the country, including the three highest peaks in North Iceland. You can cross this winter wonderland on a Nordic skiing excursion or speed away dog sledding with your team of Huskies across the pristine snow-covered landscape. Alternatively, venture out along beautiful hiking trails through the snow to absorb the stunning mountain peaks. Following each day’s activities, you will have time to unwind and explore the property’s “Viking sauna” or relax with an optional massage in one of the property’s modern treatment rooms. After the sunsets, we recommend taking a dip in Deplar Farm’s geothermal indoor/outdoor pool. You may even get lucky with a stunning glimpse of the Northern Lights. In the evenings, savor the delicious gourmet dinners served around the property’s communal dining table.

This geothermal spa, located in a lava field, is filled with mineral-rich water, plentiful in silica, algae, and mineral salt. Taking a dip in the geothermal baths stimulates circulation while strengthening and moisturizing the skin. In the afternoon, greeting by your personal host and private transfer to the Keflavík airport in time for your international departure flight.
