We are a couple living in a farm in the south of Iceland. We have a cat, 2 dogs, a cat about 130 sheep and 80 horses.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
In addition to getting the chance to live on a regular Icelandic farm, we share our culture and give our workers a chance to experience different types of Icelandic food, travel and enjoy the nature and exchange stories and information about our country and culture.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
We are looking for volunteers to help out with the everyday farm tasks, doing some outdoor cleaning and rinsing on the farm and some help in the house as well. Sometimes the volunteers might be asked to help out working with the horses and cleaning the stables.
From the end of April and until the beginning of June we need help with the lambing, to watch over and take care of the sheep during the lambing period.
A private room in the house and then shared living room, kitchen and bathroom. The volunteers would get food (free) but would mostly prepare their own meals and take care of them selves.
There is a lot to see and do in the south of Iceland.
The farm is located 25km from Hvolsvöllur and there is about 10 minutes drive to Landeyjahöfn where you can take the ferry to Vestmannaeyjar. There are waterfalls, glaciers and volcano´s all around and during summer time there is a bus going from Hvolsvöllur to the beutiful places Þórsmörk and Landmannalaugar. You can also take a bus from Hvolsvöllur to Reykjavík. And of course you can go horseback riding on the farm if you are interested.
