I am a 63 year old biolgogist. I have four boys and five grand kids. Live and work in Reykljavík during winter, but like to spend the summer at the old family homestead, Ytri-Tjarnir, Eyjafjörður Bay, North-Iceland. I work for Vatnajökull National Park and I am currently busy with assembling a nomination file to register the park to the UNESCO World Heriatge List.
Introduction to life in the Icelandic countryside. My borther is a dairy farmer and lives on the farm in a separate house. We also have Icelandic horses that need training! Could offer an old camper for camping out in the various beutiful places in this part of Iceland. The travellers will have an intimate insight into Icelandic country life and enjoy a lot of beautiful nature.
I am renovating an old stone house and garden in Eyjafjörður Bay, northern Iceland, some 15 km from Akureyr. The house was built by my grandparents in 1927 and is where we grew up, me and my two sisters and two brothers. I need general help with landscaping, fence building, laying slabs, simple carpenting, house painting, etc., etc.
Grand old hose with a lot of soul and space, several bedrooms and all necessary facilities such as two bathrooms, WiFi etc. The house is a little bit worn and that is why I am renovating ;) Food provided.
Helpers can explore the neighbourhood (can lend a car), hike, ride horses, go swimming, camping etc…..
