  • Description


    We are a family of 5 living in Akureyri (the capital of the North) close to the center. We are Gugga and Siggi 41 years old, Saga 14 years old, Uni Steinn 12 and Sölvi 8 years old..and Garpur the dog. We are very active in sports and horses, and we like to cook and eat together. There's never a quiet moment around us, so if you don't like action our home would not be there place :). We are open-minded and we like to meet more people. We treat our workaway'ers like one of the family and we are flexible and easy-going :). We mainly need help with keeping the house clean and walking the dog.
    We prefer workawayer's that are 25 years old and older, as well as only females.

  • Help


    We mostly need help around the house, cleaning and cooking. That is: hoovering, moping, folding cloths, organizing closets ect. ! Garpur, one year old Cavalier (dog) also needs someone to walk him and play while we are at work. Normally we don't need help with the kids or horses :).
