We have already made an arrangement for summer 2015

We live in a nice flat (177m2) in a two families house near the centrum in Akureyri in a quiet neighbourhood. We are five in our family,Birna, Roggi and three sons (7,10,16). Next summer we will be 5 only for a 10 days because our oldest son is staying in Iceland. We love to travel, listen to music, hike in the nature and enjoy life! We love our place and the surroundings - there are lots of opportunities to do different things and we will help you to find things you like! Next summer we want to be in Europe up to 6 weeks and we could do two swaps in different countries. Our holiday is from 13th june - 14th august. Our prime-time would be from around 15th of june - beginning of august but we are very flexible people.
We have 4 bedrooms (two with double sized rooms), big living room with tv, quiet living/hobby room with sleeping sofa (possible for two medium people), computer, record and cd player with lots of vynil and cd´s and fire place. It is also kitchen and two bathrooms (one with a bathtube and one with a shower). Outside is a nice garden with a little playhouse and two terraces, in the front and the back. It is free wifi in some rooms in the house.
We are close to many things to do (max 20 min walk) like swimming pool, playgrounds, botanic garden, river, the library, the shopping mall and 24hours grocery shops. We have an old car, Mitsubishi Lancer (2001) but he works well and drive us to the places we want to visit and we will check it out before we go. We have also bicycle  for different ages.
We want to stay in Europe next summer for 3-6 weeks.
