I┤am a 75 year old man who lives on a horse farm in Eastern Iceland. Since my wife became ill 7 years ago I have been living alone. My 5 children all live in different parts of Iceland and visit when they can. As I have problems with my knees and hips I am looking for a volunteer to help me with cooking and clearing up, shopping and basic things like washing my clothes and keeping the house clean. I would also like to learn more English (my daughter is writing this for me) and could teach Icelandic in return. I have a good sense of humor and generally enjoy life. I have a car so that transport to town and around here could be arranged. I am looking for someone who wants to stay for a minimum of one month and preferably longer. Sometimes a friend of mine elderly lady from Reykjavik comes and stays with me for a while, now i have a friend living with me for the time being, but he is away working most of the day. My English is not very good (my daughter wrote my profile), but he can he... more inside

We are a disabled couple living in Akranes, Iceland, a small fishing village about 40 mins drive north of Reykjavik. We have both had heart attacks in the last year and I am experiencing extreme memory loss. I'm having a problem doing housework. Our sons recently moved out to start their own lives and we are renting out their rooms on airbnb to augment our disability pensions but I am finding it so difficult to make up the beds as it is making my back even more painful than usual. My husband is overseas getting medical help so I really need help as quickly as possible for a few months. We have a girl coming in October. I have a friend who came to help but she is in a worse physical situation than me, so she is helping me sort out my massive paperwork pile.

Also would be good if the person was a good organiser and help us make a daily routine. I try to write down all I need to do but forget where I have left the note pad. :/ It is not Alzheimers or Dementia, but is an extreme sid... more inside

2 adult household with one toddler, an adult foster charge, and one dog. We are constantly undertaking projects that could either benefit from an extra set of hands, OR child care for our toddler to enable us to get our projects done.

We've just bought a new house in Kˇpavogur (part of the capital area) and are looking for help for sure on the dates of:
August 11-13 but also more. We do not live at this location currently, so you would have the entire house to yourselves, which is in a state of disrepair, but is livable, warm, dry, and large. When we visit in the evenings and over the weekends, is when we would like extra hands for helping.


*current desires*
Lawn maintenance - mowing, tree pruning, removing branches to a central pile.
Childcare - Tons of projects where we prefer to do the labor, but our 3.5 year old needs a watchful eye at the same location as we will be.

Hi there. Welcome to our listing.

--We are able to host volunteers as soon as possible--

We are a couple living in a small house on a small farm in the southern of Iceland. We have a 18 months and 4 months old babies. We also have dogs, parrots, chicken, geese, horses and calves.

We are looking for two people to help out around the house, with the kids and with the farm-stuff that has to be done. There is always something that has to be done and with two young babies, extra pairs of hands is appreciated.

We need people who are willing to get their hands dirty if needed, who are able to work independently, doing things from fencing, carpentry and taking care of the animals to babysitting and doing housework.

We require people who are easy going, have good work ethics and speak very good English. A drivers license is a plus.

Our home is smoke free and we are not able to host vegans.

Minimum stay is one week.

I am seeking for helpers in July and August 2018 for a short time 7-10 days. I need help with the garden and to do some painting.

We are a family of four persons who live on a farm in south of Iceland, 1 1/2 hour drive from Reykjavk. We speak English.

We breed horses, have dogs and a cat. We also have a big garden with a greenhouse.

The person needs to be independent, easy to live with, kind to children and have interest in animals and esp. gardening. Good humour and willingness to learn and experince something new are appreciated abilities.
We are seeking help for short periods - mostly during spring and summer time.
Unfortunately it is not easy for us to have helpers who are vegetarians.

I will be forever thankful to all the helpers who have come to me and helped me in the garden during the years. Without this help my garden would not look so good. It takes lot of time and effort to maintain it and it is necessary for me to have an extra helping hand.

Hi potential volunteer!

#we are looking for people in december-april 2019#

We are three guys living on a farm which is a commune style, spiritual, permaculture farm and backpackers style B&B. We like to have lots of volunteers and we have three dogs and a cat.

We have a couple of rooms we rent to backpackers support us here at the farm and we need volunteers to help with cleaning, making beds, with the farming and helping with the sweat lodges.

The work we want done is basic. Cleaning the house, doing the rental rooms, doing laundry and helping in and around the farm is expected. The work is very basic and laid back and shouldn't be more than 2-3 hours a day the basic stuff but people are welcome to participate in other work or find things to do.

We encourage people also to chill, play some music, make art, take photographs and walk around our beautiful surroundings.

We like to take our volunteers around an show them the beautiful surroundings, we are in the midd... more inside
