    Descripción

    We are Árni and Heiða, two sheep farmers in the northeast of Iceland. We live on a farm on Þistilfjörður with four dogs and two cats (only one dog and one cat live in our home), and the nearest town is Raufarhöfn, about 8km away. We would love to get someone to stay and help around the house and explore its surroundings.

    (Please note that we don’t need help with the farm!)

    There is a lot of nature around, so hiking would be possible. There's a river, waterfall, mountains, and black sand beach on the farm. During the spring and summer, puffins can be spotted from the cliffs nearby. In summer and early fall, blueberry or mushroom picking is also an option. The nearby town has a swimming pool.

    We had some workawayers staying on our farm and it was always a good experience. We had a fun time working together or exploring the area! We enjoy immersing workawayers in Icelandic culture and language, as well as learning about the countries that workawayers come from. If workawayers are interested, they can also learn about sheep farming or construction.

    We just need some help with light cleaning around the house, and maybe practicing English; we don't need help with the farm, but you are always welcome to learn about the tradition if you are interested. Sharing your favorite recipes or dishes is always much appreciated as well :) Árni's son and his siblings sometimes stay for a few weeks (usually during the summer), so someone who enjoys spending time with kids is also a bonus. There are also some other small projects we need help with depending on the season, like painting the house, mending the fence, and planting trees.

    Alojamiento

    You would get a room for yourself and of course a bed. There are 3 meals a day and 2 coffee times and since this is a farm there is always enough to eat.

    Note: It might be difficult to host vegetarians since fresh produce is not always available; it's a very remote corner of Iceland.
