  • Description


    Hi there! I live in a house near Dalvík in North Iceland along with a cat and two rabbits. I work as a language tutor from home and as a tour guide and photographer and moved into my home last autumn. A new place creates new ideas and that's why I would love to have an open minded person to help me with my projects around the house and the garden as well as general maintenance.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I live in a valley between mountains with a few sheep farms and dairy farms close by. It's a friendly community, so you will meet more local people and learn more about Iceland and Icelanders. I need to go to Akureyri and Dalvík regularly, so there will be the chance to explore these towns with its culture as well.

  • Help


    I need help cleaning in the house, help in the garden and general maintenance around the house. There are many additional small projects I need help with, like making firewood, building a bee hive, collecting stones at the river bank for a path on the property, painting the house, mending the fence, reorganizing the workshop etc.

    I enjoy learning languages. I'm dabbling with Norwegian, Italian and Scottish Gaelic and am interested in knowing more about any language :)

    There is a lot of beautiful nature around my home. You can even see the glacier from the kitchen window. If you like hiking and exploring nature, this is the right place for you. If you like reading or painting or knitting or any other hobby you are welcome to enjoy the nice views, birdsongs and quietness. There is no bus stop in walking distance, but I have a car and can pick you up or drop you off.
