    *️*️*️may to 20. july*️*️*️


    Before you read more: we would prefer a female volunteer, nothing personal male.

    We are a family of 5 living in Akureyri (the capital of the North). We are Erla Rán and Valur 40 years old, Einar Húmi 17 years old (2001), Katla Fönn 10 years old (2009) and Nökkvi Már 4 years old (2015).

    We have a small company that sells salad and ice cream and I (Erla Rán) work there but Valur works at sea and are not at home fore long time.
    We enjoy being outdoors in the nature and spend time together. We also like to enjoy good food together as a family.

    We are interested in meeting new people and so we would like to get to know a work awayer. We are flexible and solution oriented :)

    We are open-minded and we like to meet more people. We treat our workaway'ers like one of the family and we are very flexible and easy-going :).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The work awayer would get to experience the typical busy Icelandic family-life with lots of fun and action. We could help our work-awayer with their travel, advise them of interesting places to see in the area and try to make their journey as fun and exciting as we can.

    Help

    We need some assistance in our home to help with the children and basic household tasks such as cooking dinner and other daily tasks of a large household. We need an extra set of hands around the house especially when Valur (the father) is long time away. It would mostly be help with cleaning the house, cooking and prepare dinner for evening and then in the afternoons/evenings getting the kids in some activite and getting them to bed time. But the work awayer would also have quite a bit of time for themselves. And I am very flexible. If the workaway would prefer is also able to work part of the time in the kitchen of our salad shop.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Being in the beautiful northern part of Iceland is a great experience in it self. Mountains and the rough nature is all around us. Akureyri where we live is a little town full of life. The local culture shines through here much more than in the Capital area.
