  • Description


    We are a family of 3-5 people. It's me Sandra (29) Sverrir (33) and our baby boy Víkingur Blær who will turn 1 years old in August. I also have 2 step kids, Garðar (9) and Amelia (8). They stay whit us every other weekend. We also have one dog (Harka) pudlepointer who is 2 years old and have a lot of energy

    We live in Bæjarsveit in West Iceland in the county side.

    I'm still on my maternity leave and will start working in August, Sverrir works as an truck driver and is sometimes on a work trips around Iceland to fix the road's for 2 week's at a time.

    I have been riding horses since I was a little kid and that's my main hobby, I need someone to help me with Víkingur so I can go horseback riding and of course you can also get to know the Icelandic horse.

    We are really easy going people and love a good laugh that sometimes can get a little loud 🤣

    Best regards
    Sandra Björk & Sverrir

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It is probably really different for people to come and stay in the countryside in Iceland and I love every thing farm related though I don't own a farm myself I can show people around and you can learn much about our culture.
