    Descripción

    Me and my husband are just over forty and live on a farm in north-east Iceland.

    We have two children together which are 9 and 7 years old. During weekdays they are both in school until 15, both of them speak good English already.

    We have around 450 sheep and horses, around 10 riding horses. We also have chickens, ducks, and 20 calves. We have a dog in the house, but he is kept in the laundry room and is not allowed inside the general house.

    Skúli work alongside farming.

    They could learn some Icelandic, as it's good to pick up when always around the kids. You will be part of an icelandic family, and in your free time you can explore the area, hike or ride the horses.

    It´d be good to get help with the kids and cleaning around the house.

    We have busier seasons, like lambing season (may) , slaughter season (sept-oct) and heying season (summer).

    Alojamiento

    We preferably want upbeat and friendly people with us that would like to spend their time with us and maybe learn some Icelandic.

    That's why we'd like the person being with us most of the day but could have a room for themselves in an apartment which is a couple meters away, owned by the family.

    It's possible to ride horse in freetime and to go on walks or hikes, depending the weather though. You can learn a lot about the Icelandic horse if you're interested since there are a lot of horses in the stable most of the time (but not in October and November, and sometimes in December, during this time the horses have a holiday).

    It takes 10 minutes to drive to a very small village here and there you can go to a coffeehouse, post-office, bank, health-care and grocery store. Around 22km away is a swimming pool, which takes around 20-25 minutes to drive to.
    We have a hot tub so we do not use the swimming pool a lot.

    We live 130 km from Egilsstaðir, which is the next bigger town and ca. 250 km from Akureyri. You can fly from here to Akureyri.

    In the winter, it can sometimes snow a lot so you can't leave the valley and flights can be cancelled because of weather as well.
