    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a quiet neighbourhood in the beautiful town of Akureyri in Iceland. Within a 10 minutes drive we have a great skiing/snowboarding area (in the winter). Beautiful nature, outdoor swimming pools and northern lights during winter time. We are willing to show workaway some nice places in the region of our home town. Close to our town we have many rivers and lakes who are good for fishing and in our fjord we have great whale whatching companys. Close to our home town there are also beautiful and popular hiking trails. We will do our best to show you our culture and interesting places.
