We are a family run business that offer comfortable stays in the Icelandic country side. We offer rooms with great views over the valley and are right in the middle of the Golden Circle route. We also offer a summer time horse rental with trips to a local waterfall, as well as our farm to table restaurant and coffee shop with home made ice-creams. Here people can see into our dairy and watch the cows whilst they eat the products that come from them. Everyone is welcome to stop by here at Efstidalur for a taste of the traditional Icelandic farm life.

On the Golden Circle tour, my guide stopped by the facility for an ice cream. While we waited for the line to get smaller, we looked through the windows to see the cows munching on hay in the connected adjacent barn. The ice cream had no icicle texture; just smooth and creamy

If you’re staying in the rooms, I would recommend against the cheapest rooms. The one we were in was in an old building, whose toilet absolutely reeked. There was also an incredibly frustrating clanging sound coming from the radiator all night. I’m a very heavy sleeper, but it managed to wake me several times throughout the night, as it sounded like someone hammering (I have a video of this but looks like I can’t upload a video). The area around this farm was beautiful. We chose it because it was one of the few locations in the area. Staff was very friendly, and the ice cream was phenomenal.

I stayed one night with my children. This place has excellent atmosphere and lovely staff. The ice cream is a must have. We had dinner which was very satisfying. While you eat you can see lovely cows. The children enjoyed the facilities as the outdoors is great for all ages. The only downside was that the instant coffee in my room was decaf. I had to buy myself a decent cup at their shop. The explanation was that their supplier did only have instant decaf 🧐

The family running the place was always friendly, waited up for a late arrival and made sure the stay was a pleasant and whole experience. The site celebrates their ongoing heritage of the farm and there is a lot of information all over the restaurant and farm about their history. The little lodges are cozy with all the necessary amenities. Vegans and vegetarians are excellently cared for with the savoury dishes - but there is no dairy free ice cream. The ice cream which they make on site is amazing, well worth a try even for those who wouldn’t normally have one.

Stayed in a log cabin in deep snow-all paths cleared and gritted to go over to the restaurant! So cosy with underfloor heating and a shower room with ‘vintage’ plumbing. Such a lovely and unique place; sitting in the cafe looking through the window to the barn where the cows are munching away contentedly while smiling at you too. The homemade food products were delicious and the ice cream and yoghurt divine!

This is a great overnight near Geysir. Of our stops in Iceland this was my favourite. Rooms are neat, tidy and clean. The food is excellent, definitely recommend having breakfast and being adventurous with the food, lots of things to try. Take care with the hot water in the bathroom, it is HOT.

Loved it! The rooms were great and the food was great. The room has a rustic interior and was nice and spacious. Bed was very comfy. The room was a little warm so we just opened the window a crack to sleep. We learned the floor is heated so don’t put a bag with chocolate on the floor (whoops!). The bathroom was spacious and there was a coffee/tea maker in the room. We ate both dinner and breakfast here and both were excellent. I loved that it showcased the cows and the farm. The staff were all very friendly and helpful recommending local places to eat and visit. Highly recommend!

Traveled with my 2 teenagers and we had a room with private bathroom. The room is best described as a charming log cabin with all the amenities expected. We had a comfortable sleep. The next morning we had a nice breakfast at restaurant located on the upper level of the main holding. The breakfast spread was good and the restaurant overlook the small cow farm. Photographs and posters lined the walls which detailed the rich history of Efstidalur farm.

We stopped here after visiting several waterfalls. The food was delicious and fresh. Several of our party rode horses while a few stayed back and caught up on computer work. It was a true Icelandic farm experience

We had a wonderful stay, eating while the cows enjoyed their own dinner and breakfast outside the dining room window and talking with one of the owners about the fascinating new age in dairy farming and learning about the history of this multi-generation farm family.
