About our home

Our house is an old Icelandic style house on 3 floors (basement, main floor and second floor). There are rather steep steps down to the basement. In the basement you will find two kids rooms, one bathroom and the washing. You can walk straight into the garden from the basement. On the main floor is the kitchen, dining area, living room and one kids room. The main entrance is also on the main floor. On the second floor there is the TV-room, the master bedroom and bathroom.


More about us

  1. We are a family of five plus two cats and a dog (the dog will not be at the house during exchange but the cats need feeding). Our young people are 15 18 and 20 years old. Two girls and the youngest a boy. We are Lilja an occupational therapist working in a small consultant firm with specialty in working environment and Birkir an engineer working as an VP of IT operations and security in the Icelandic Banks Data Center.
    We love to travel and have been tvice in the USA and also visited a few countries in Europe. We love to hike in the nature and have done some of that here in Iceland.
    We hope to find some nice family to exchange houses with. We did an exchange last summer (2013)in Marseille and it was wonderful.
