  • Description


    We are a family of 4 in Iceland! My name is Atli (24 Male) and my fiancee is Hjördís (22 Female). We have two beautiful children Sigurður (2 yo. Boy) and Emilía (10 months Girl). We are looking for someone who loves kids and can help out with them! Our town is the 3rd largest in Iceland but still only has a population of about 3 thousand. You can drive any direction for 30 minutes or less and be completely isolated alone in nature in amazing scenery. Our apartment has 3 bedrooms and you would have your own room of course. We have a family car which is very reliable in the snow given that it snows most of the year here in Iceland. Our town celebrates Christmas and we do too! The town is lit up with sparling lights and we gather to light up the town tree. There are lots of social gatherings which are promoted by our weekly newsletter for the town and always something fun to do. We mostly need help with taking care of our kids while we work. We are happy to welcome you to our family! Please be in touch!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We do traditional Icelandic food quite often which we are happy to teach! We live in a rural place where amazing nature is very close by, there are raindeer, northern lights are almost a daily occurrence during this time of year and we have a very large black shore that's within an hours drive from our town. The community is very tight knitt and close. Our household is also fairly unique and our yard opens up into the rural nature.

  • Help


    We both have full time jobs and sometimes they clash timewise, this job would be to help out with our kids. Most days it would be in the afternoon, taking care of them, feeding, playing and some days putting them to bed. If things are slow and easy some general housekeeping would be great but not a big importance.
