  • Description


    We are a family of five. We live at a sheep farm about 25 km from a little village in North Iceland where we run a guesthouse and a convenience store. Our children are at the age of 19, 16 and 7, all girls. We have around 500 sheep at our farm. Our farm is at a beautiful place with a view into the mountains and over the sea to the village. Very peaceful place, a few kilometers to the next farm.
    We all speak good English (also the youngest one) and we would prefer someone who speaks good English.

    We are looking for someone to work at the guesthouse in the summer, cleaning and meeting with guests on arrival. We would provide a room at the guesthouse for the summer or at the farm.
