Deplar Farm

Iceland's Northern Reaches

Venture to Iceland’s northern reaches, into the Fljót Valley on the mountainous Troll Peninsula, for a secluded escape in a region seemingly frozen in time. Pursue your own passions, choosing from a variety of ways to explore this remote wilderness of rugged mountains, sweeping glacial valleys, and rocky coastal fjord lands.

Day 1

Reykjavík/Akureyri/Troll Peninsula

Disembark the National Geographic Explorer and transfer to the airport in Reykjavík for a short flight to Akureyri. Travel to the remote Troll Peninsula on Iceland’s northern coast and arrive at your historic accommodations—a former sheep farm converted into an off-the-grid retreat. Enjoy a welcome tour of this extraordinary property, then set out on a hike through the deep, winding valleys of the Troll Peninsula. Return to your lodge and soak in the hotel’s geothermal pool. In the evening, enjoy a farm-to-table dinner while gazing out through panoramic windows at the stars shining over this pristine landscape. (L,D)

Day 2

Troll Peninsula

Savor a seasonal Icelandic breakfast as the sun rises over the valley, then choose to embark on a guided horseback ride over rolling grasslands or rugged coastline, or fish for Arctic char in the icy river. Return to the lodge for an al fresco lunch. In the afternoon, pick up a paddle and kayak down the Fljótaá River to Lake Stífluvatn, where snowcapped peaks often reflect a perfect mirror image on the water’s surface. Soothe tired muscles in the geothermal pool back at your lodge and savor another delicious dinner. (B,L,D)
