    We live in a very beautiful part of Iceland, called Hegranes, just 7 km from Sauðárkrókur.

    The main attraction nearby is Grettislaug, Drangey, Glaumbær, Hólar í Hjaltadal, all these places are historical places in Iceland.

    Here on the farm you can go horseback riding, take a trip on the fishing boat with us when we go fishing

  • Help


    We have horses, sheeps, hens, dogs and cats.

    The animals are all around us beside the sheeps that goes to the mountains in the summer and are shepherd in the fall.

    What we are expecting from our workawayers is to be a helping hand in all the task you will find in our hobby farm.
    That can be doing the laundry and the dishes, feeding the animals and riding the horses.
    Just like being a part of the family and do things the family is doing.
    Also we love it when they cook something from there country :)
    We are looking for someone who loves horses and other animals.
