  • Description



    we are a family of 5 people. Husband and wife in their forties and 3 boys 24, 20 and 17 years old. (the 24 year old is studying in Denmark).

    We are in the process of rebuilding the basement to an apartment and would love to get help through workaway as we like being surounded with people - eager to learn about other countries, at the same time as we like to show and talk about our beautiful country.

    We live in a small village called Nes. Our island is conected with the kapital Tórshavn with a undersea tunnel (the only one with a roundabout in the world) which in itself is worth a visit.

    We live 100 meters from the sea in beautiful and peaceful surroundings. We have a little boat, and we enjoy hiking. Bogi likes to take pictures.

    We have one spare bedroom, so if you are 2 persons you need to share the bedroom.
