    Description

    We are a family that lives in the Icelandic country side on a farm with horses and sheep. We are Erlingur and Malin and our five children, three of them however are from other relationship so they are only with us every other week.

    The children are born between 2005-2014, three girls and two boys. Erlingur is a professional horse trainer and a riding teacher and Malin is from Sweden and is a paramedic but is now only working at the farm these days.

    The farm is in north east Iceland, we have a big horse stable and many horses. The area is a quite place with few kilometers to the next farm but around a hour drive to the nearest town. Lots of unspoiled nature all around us.

    Now we mainly need someone to babysit the youngest child, that is every other week and then some general help around the house and looking after the other children. Some help in the stables would also be appreciated.

    There is another house on the farm so possibly workaway-ers could have a house for themselves if it is prepared otherwise a room in the house with the family.

    What else ...

    In their free time workawayers can get to know Icelandic horses and get to try riding. Very close to us is one of Icelands most popular waterfall in the north "Goðafoss" and Mývatn Lake is also near.
