    We are a family of 4 living in Akureyri (the capital of the North) close to the center. We are Rosa (46) and Ingi (48) , Kristófer Snær 13 years old, Katrín Lóa 11 years old..and Bassi the dog. We are very active in sports and outdoor activities, and we like to cook and eat together. There's never a quiet moment around us, so if you don't like action our home would not be there place :). We are open-minded and we like to meet more people. We treat our workaway'ers like one of the family and we are flexible and easy-going :). We mainly need help with keeping the house clean and driving our kids around for sports ac.
    We prefer workawayer's that are 25 years old and older, as well as only females.

    We live in a rather big house in Akureyri and our family member will have it's own bedroom. We have everything that a small family needs.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Akureyri is the main skiing town in Iceland and the slopes are only 7 minutes from our house. You will have a lot of free time on weekends and during the time the kids are at school. The town is small but rather beautiful and the citizens are very friendly.
