About Efstidalur

Efstidalur II is a family farm run by four siblings and their families. We recently took over the business from our parents that started and developed the concept with us as it is today.

We are the 7th generation living on the property but our family has been living on Efstidalur II since around 1750. We are dairy farmers first and foremost, but since 2002 the business has developed with increased tourism in the area and now we also focus on a different experience for our customers. In 2013 we opened the restaurant and café and began to make our own products from our milk that we offer our guest to taste and enjoy.
