About Our Family

This is a family house, but all our children have moved from home now. The winter of 2021 we are two adults living in the house. We have three grown up children and three grandchildren.

Lifestyle

We spend much of our free time outdoors, walking, swimming, hiking, gardening. We like to travel, abroad and all around Iceland. We also sing in a choir and we like all sorts of musical events and theatre. Reading good books is also on the favorite list and spending time with our family and grandchildren. Our main free time for the last years has been dedicated to building a summerhouse in the far northwest of Iceland, where we love to stay.
