  • Description


    We are a family of 5 living in Akureyri (the capital of the North) close to the center. We are Gugga and Siggi 43 years old, Saga 17 years old, Uni Steinn 15 and Sölvi 11 years old..and Garpur the dog. We are very active in sports and horses, and there is 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 walking the dog.

    NOTE: We prefer workawayer's that are 25 years old and older, as well as only females.

    We mostly need help around the house, cleaning and cooking. That is: hoovering, moping, folding cloths, organizing closets ect. ! Garpur, three year old Cavalier (dog) also needs someone to walk him and play while we are at work. Normally we don't need help with the kids or horses :)...but ww are welcome to take part if they are interested.
