Hi there! We are a family of 4 living in beautiful countryside in South Iceland, about 100 km from Reykjavík, the Icelandic capital. We live on a farm, but it is not a working farm, our animals are strictly pets. We have a few horses, rabbits, chicken, dog and cat - most of them rescues! We live in stunning landscape with views of volcanoes and glaciers. Great area for hiking. Both parents work from home office but have to travel once in a while. But one parent is usually at home. We have had aupair girls for about 10 years and it has been a lovely experience. They have been like our daughters and have returned many times as friends. But now our kids have outgrown the babysitters and we just need a little help in the house, with the pets and mainly some house & farm sitting so we as a family can get away once in a while for a town or ski excursion. Since our kids are already 16 and 14 years old they do not need watching, just nice to have somebody adult around, when the parents are away since the next farm is about 2 km away. So we thought we give workaway a try as a form of cultural exchange to get to know you and to give you a chance to get to know the daily life in Iceland.
Hours would be max 25 light help per week in exchange for accommodation and food. You would have your own little studio apartment with sleeping couch and private bathroom. Help would be light housework and some help with the pets and once in a while some house sitting. Native English, Scandinavian or German speakers preferred.
Currently looking for someone:
Period 1: from November 15th to December 15th 2021 (or there about) 3-4 weeks
Period 2: Summer 2022 (June - August) For this summer period we prefer workaways that can stay a min. of 8 weeks and as our favorite hobby is horseback riding, a person with good riding skills would be preferred so you can join us on our daily rides in your free time.
Strictly non-smokers only. We can accommodate only one person at a time, so please understand and do not apply if you are a couple or family. Only fully vaccinated people (covid 19 vaccination) are accepted to protect you and us.
We hope you understand. Thank you !

We live in stunning landscape with views of volcanoes and glaciers. Great area for hiking and to enjoy the Icelandic landscape! Mother is a professional tour guide and works for a tour operator called Exploring Iceland and can provide lots of information about Icelandic geology, history and culture. If you like horses and have already riding experience you can join us in your free time on our rides. But please note, you need to be an experienced rider. We do not have beginner´s horses. The riding would be in your free time, it is not part of your duties.

You would have your own little studio apartment with sleeping couch and private bathroom. Meals would be taken with the family.
We live rather remote in the countryside, about 2 km to the next farm but please note there are no bars, pubs or cafés around ;-) Just good to know for you! If you come to stay with us you need to be able to fill your free time with hiking, playing with the animals, reading or that kind of stuff. If you like horses and have already riding experience you can join us in your free time on our rides. But please note, you need to be an experienced rider. We do not have beginner´s horses. The riding would be in your freetime, it is not part of your duties.
Please note: Iceland's borders have remained open to other EU and Schengen states throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, but Iceland continues to implement travel restrictions and testing and quarantine measures, which you will have to follow strictly. More information on travel restrictions on official Icelandic government sites.
