We are a family of 6, a 6 years old girl (who thinks she's 10), 11 years old twins (boy and a girl) and a 20 years old boy ( who comes to see us sometimes) and me (44) and my husband (53). We also have a 10 year old golden retriver dog who is very kind, 2 cats, 3 rabbits and 6 hens. In the summer we live in Álftafjörður in the east of Iceland which we think is the most beautiful place in Iceland. We are looking for help this summer because we have so much plans and to few hands. We're planning to build a rabbithouse and we also plan to plant some trees, take down old fences and build new fences. But don't worry, you don't have to be a carpenter or something like that. We will always be there with you. We also have horses who we ride and the kids (especially the 11 year old girl) loves to ride the horses. If you want to come to help us you will be taken in to the family as if you were part of it. There are lots of beautiful places here nearby, and if it's very warm we might go to the Tröllatjörn which is a small lake or a pond that we can swim in.
So if you are not afraid of getting your hands a little dirty we would be happy to see you.
We have no space left for the summer 2017

Help in the house
You would see the icelandic country culture and you could learn how to plant trees, build cabins, take care of horses and just how we do things in our family.
We are planning to clean the area a little bit and get rid of some old fences and we also have to put some new fences down. We are also planting some trees and building small cabins. We have horses on the farm which need to be taken care of. You might be asked to do a little housework such as cooking, and cleaning, but no more than the rest of the family. You would just be a part of the family.
