  • Description


    We are a german-icelandic family of 4 plus one dog and two cats, horses and sheeps . We moved to a old farm in the north of iceland in the beginning of the year and wants to build a nice home for our family and our animals. The dad is working every half month in norway and the mom is at home right now and would love to have companionship and a helping hand. We would like to invite someone who wants to help us a little bit with everything around here and spend a great time with us. We are a little crazy and active family, we love to laugh, meet new people and sit together and talk.

    We do not have a business and our helpers are free to choose helping times, breaks, time when they go on sightseeingtrips and so on.
    We need help in the house, sometimes cooking, gardening, feeding the horses and put them out (we just have our own family horses ), keep care of the kids (maybe drive them to or pick them up from practise ) , keep care of the house if we are not home.

    If you are responsible, open minded, have sense for humor and would like to meet the icelandics (people, horses, sheeps) in their own beautiful country we look forward to welcome you in our family.
    We prefer non smoking guests and good but not necessary if you are 21 or older (than we can offer sometimes a car to drive around)
    We can offer a private room in our house, when we have 2 helper, it could be that you have to share a room.

    If you are interested, don´t hestitate to contact us.
