We are a young family living in the beautiful west fjords of Iceland. We live in one of the most scenic areas of Iceland with numerous waterfalls, endless mountains, extraordinary sunsets and wonderful wildlife all around. We are close to the home of the Atlantic puffin and a rare Sea eagle nesting ground.

We also have numerous Icelandic horses which you can ride, when the opportunity presents itself.

To start with we are looking for someone active and enthusiastic to babysit our daughters ( 4 years old & 1 1/2 years old) while we work. I am a chef in a hotel next to the house and the summer months get quite busy. We would encourage you to explore the area around with the girls, for example to accompany on trips with the extended family, harvesting eider down from the islands nearby.

Our family has a business creating bedding with the eider down, it is a very delicate process and there is a lot to learn within the trade. There would be opportunity to work there as well.

It is a full time position however you are free to take our daughter to explore anywhere you wish. Also volunteers will be expected to cook their own meals as well as for the family when necessary, all supplies shall be provided. You will be provided with your own private room with access to everything you need, including wireless internet, television etc.
