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.
