We are a family, living in the north-west of Iceland, looking for some help around the farm from the middle of June 2015, until the end of July, (with the possibility of a longer stay).

On the farm there are cattle┤s, few horses, ducks, a cat and a dog.

The main work would be to help paint the outside of the house and the outhouses, including the roofs, but also some other work around the farm, like feeding the calf┤s and help taking care of the other animals.

The farm is located in the beautiful area of Skagafj÷r­ur, about 3 km from the small village of VarmahlÝ­ where you can go for a swim or relax in the nice, warm hot tubs. You can also visit the "farmers market" where you can buy handicraft made from the locals. Just next door to our farm is one of Iceland┤s oldest turf church, the beautiful VÝ­imřrarkirkja. The small town Sau­ßrkrˇkur is about 25 km away from the farm. Some of Europe┤s best river rafting rivers are located in Skagafj÷r­ur and there are many interesting places to visit and mountains to walk on. :) A bus goes from VarmahlÝ­ to ReykjavÝk, Akureyri and other places you might want to visit.

You can look up some more information about the the area, on the following websites:
