  • Description

    Description

    We are an Icelandic/Swiss family with 3 kids (13, 10 and 7 years old) and some pets (dog, cat, rabbits, chickens and horses). We live about 5 km north of Akureyri on the countryside with a beautiful view over Eyjafjörður. At our home we run a guesthouse, welcoming guests from all over the world. We also run a tour company. Andrea works manly in the guesthouse, while Kristján works as a tour guide. We are an active and open minded family. Our children speak Icelandic and German.

    Our Workawayers like to be a part of our family, help out in the family with daily tasks of a family life or in the guesthouse.

    At the moment we are looking for somebody who would help out in the guesthouse, with preparing breakfast, cleaning rooms, laundry.
    So you should be fluent in English, be able to work independently and it is good to have a driving license, since we live on the country side.
    You might be alone at home sometimes
