Efra Nes 311

The ideal place for your wedding, event or party in Iceland

By the riverbank of the stunning salmon river, Þverá stands the homestead Efra Nes. Surrounded by the stunning views of Borgarfjörður and only an hour away from the capital Reykjavík, Efra Nes is an ideal location for events and gatherings, big or small. The whole farm has been renovated in a rustic barn style where every single detail has been attended to. Throughout the years the owners have collected pieces of furniture and decorative goods with beautiful stories behind them that now embellish Efra Nes and give it its incompatible charm.
