  • Description


    We live on a sheep farm. Maintaining fences, houses and an old farm house. Herd the sheeps in the autumn, at lambing season in may, making hay over the summer and lots.
    I have 3 children, 2 daughters 10 and 7 years old and one son 3 year old since december. There is enough to do on the farm. I (Guðný) do some occasionally work away from the farm and the kids go to kindergarten and school. Over the summer there is need of a babysitter and help with the house and cooking. The old farm house is for you to stay in, with kitchen, WC and 2-3 bedrooms. Just perfect for couples or friends.

    Experience and a stay in icelandic nature. Its very peaceful here, with none tourists and the wild nature is just in the backyard. We have wonderful mountains. In the winter we can enjoy the northern lights very well, because there is no citylights. In the summer we enjoy the short nights and true nature :)
