  • Description


    Before you read more: we would prefer a female volunteer, nothing personal male.
    We are family of 6 living centralt in Akureyri (the Capital of North). We are Ragna Valdís og Jakob and our four children. Blædís Björt 14 years old, Amanda Ösp 10 years old, Sebastían Smári 5 years old and Jónatan Blær almost 3 years old. Jakob is a carpenter and Ragna is an occupational therapist.
    We enjoy being outdoors in the nature, dancing, listening to music etc. We also like to enjoy good food together as a family.
    There's never a quiet moment around us, so if you don't like action our home would not be there place. We are interested in meeting new people and so we would like to get to know a work awayer. We are flexible and solution oriented :)

  • Help


    We need some assistance in our home to help with the children and basic household tasks such as cooking and other daily tasks of a large household. We need an extra set of hands around the house now because Jakob is temporarily working overseas for a few weeks at a time and Ragna also works out of the home part time so me help during this time would be greatly appreciated. It would mostly be help during the mornings with getting the children ready for school and preschool and then in the afternoons/evenings so the work awayer would also have quite a bit of time for themselves.

    What else ...

    Akureyri is a small town in the North of Iceland, very beautiful with a population of 18.000 people. Akureyri has several swimmingpools, nice restaurants, bars and shops. The bus runs for free all days. There is much to see in our area. There would also be the opportunity to get to know other work awayers and plenty of free time to explore the area.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The work awayer would get to experience the typical busy Icelandic family-life with lots of fun and action. We could help our work-awayer with their travel, advise them of interesting places to see in the area and try to make their journey as fun and exciting as we can.
