    Hello :-)

    We are a family living very centrally in the beautiful town of Akureyri, the capital of the north of Iceland.

    We are looking for a Workawayer ONLY 25 years old or older. We get so many requests and we don't have time to reply to people that are under 25 so please just contact us if you fit our requirements.

    We like to have someone that speaks English, 25 years old or older. Who's used to household cleaning, doing laundry, taking care of children and cooking sometimes, and general maintenance.

    Children at home are aged 8 and 12
    Our household is nut free because of serious nut allergy. The youngest also is a type1 diabetic.

    We like someone flexible and honest. We are relaxed and easy-going, sometimes there's action though.
    Our house is central, 5 min walk to downtown, 5 min walk to school, the gym and the best swimming pool in the world.

    In the town of Akureyri the public transport is free, the buses. But outside of Akureyri the public transport costs, see streato.is

    We prefer persons that are experienced in Workaways and are around 25 years old and older and speak English, since we want to practice our English better.
