  • Description


    I'm 22 year old carpenter living on a small, old farm with horses and a dog. I live alone and would love to have an extra hand helping me here. I need help with typical cleaning in the house, looking after the animals and some maintenance of the farmhouses. It would also help a lot if someone could take care of the cooking.
    The small farm is located in South Iceland. You can see Eyjafjallajökull, Hekla, and Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands) from the farm.
    Located near: Seljalandsfoss, Þórsmörk, Eyjafjallajökull, Skógafoss, Vík, Landeyjahöfn harbour (where Herjólfur sails to the Westman Islands) and many more beautiful locations!
    Workaway would have a room to themselves.
    Borrowing a car could be for discussion, also just driving around with me as a guide around the local area.
    My English is not very good, but I hope I can practice more with a Workaway around me.

    You will be in the area of most volcanoes and nature pearls of Iceland! Whether you want to walk up a glacier, go on ATV ride or horseback riding with me to a black sand beach with a view to Westman Islands, all is possible! And of course you will get to know farm work.

  • Help


    I need help with my horses and riding, so experience with horses would be a great plus!
    I also need to do a lot of work around the old farm. The barn is not in good condition and some fences need to be fixed. As well as a little work inside the house.
