Area: ReykholtWe are a young couple that have a small environmentally friendly tourism farm in Iceland. In the land of our farm lies one of the largest lava caves in the world, Víðgelmir. This lava cave is preserved and we are looking for a couple in very good physical condition to help us with guided tours to the cave for people from all around. Also for other tasks regarding the tourism farm such as cleaning cottages, making breakfast and maintenance of the farm. The farm is located in the west of Iceland, close to the second largest glacier in the county, in the middle of the nature. It has many hiking paths, rivers, lakes, a waterfall, lava fields, Icelandic horses, birds and fish. We are looking for couples, preferably with guiding and service experience, to participate in our exchange program from end of May until the beginning of September and for a minimum stay of 9 weeks. On your days off you will have a car to be able to travel around Iceland. Since 2010 one of the main objectives of the tourism farm is to fund an artistic project. As an exchange worker, you are a very important member of our farm and act as a representative of our organization to the community at large. At the farm we believe in the the complex value of the infrastructure more than of the money that it is set to cost and this is why we believe in exchange. Furthermore we appreciate the work and achievements with a constant concern for people’s well being, needs and longings instead of a price. Our farm is a small company that is taking on a larger project that is only possible with the help of people that support and agree with what we propose and, most importantly, that feel that this experience can give back to them as much as to us. For a better understanding of what you can expect as an exchange worker and what is expected of you we ask you to contact us, and tell us about yourself, so we can send you more detailed information about the exchange program. Inquiries for the summer are welcome during the previous autumn and winter.

Area: South DakotaMy wife and I are a pretty young (early 30s) and easy-going couple. I'm the benevolent overlord at a small advertising agency in downtown Deadwood, and my wife is a trained archeologist (although she currently works as a finance director and goddess of administration at my office). We spend most of our time working on our house, but we also like to read, write, cook, hike, mountain bike and entertain our small black cat, named Minou. We also love to travel, especially to Europe: I studied abroad in the UK, Laura got her master's degree in Belgium, I proposed in France, and we got married in Greece. Alas, most of our spending money has gone into restoring our house since we bought it two years ago, so it's been a while since we've gone anywhere overseas. Our trips lately have been over to Yellowstone, which is 7 hours by car.
Area: Languedoc RoussillonMy husband and I retired to SW France, (near Carcassonne) nine years ago. We have a lovely home with a large garden which takes many many hours of work, especially for my husband. We enjoy opening our home to visits from friends and family for all the summer months. We have a two bedroomed spacious gite which would be at the disposal of workaways.
