It would be brilliant, if possible to exchange with 2 families: A few days in a city and 2 weeks by the sea/ocean.

July 2019 in Reykjavik Iceland?

Hello intervac friends!

We are a family of four living in the very center of Reykjavik. Our home is within a walking distance from  the major attractions in the capital, shopping streets, restaurants, theaters, public swimming pools etc. Yet, there are only 500 m to the shore and harbor area where you can find a biking/walking trail which surrounds most of Reykjavik. We will provide many brochures and guidebooks to whomever we exchange with.

Our flat is two-storied (second and third floor) and approximately 170 sq m. On the 2nd floor we have a kitchen, living room, dining room, balcony, master bedroom, bathroom (bathtub) and laundry room. On the 3rd floor we have 3 bedrooms, a bathroom (shower), an open area with some music instruments, TV, DVD, etc,. and a small balcony. We have excellent neighbors, one family living on the ground floor and another on 1st floor.
The public transportation is good and easy access, from our home, and we have 4 bikes.
We are non-smokers and can not allow smoking in our home.
The most common way to get to Reykjavik is via Keflavik international airport and from there you take a bus Reykjavík. The trip takes around 40 minutes. One of the bus-companies has a stop only a few meters from our house and other stops are 10-15 min walk from our home.

We are willing to exchange cars. We have 2016, Landrover discovery sport (stick shift), 5 seats.
 
We have exchanged home via Intervac four times (France, Italy and Spain). These exchanges have been wonderful experiences and we really look forward to the next one.
 
 
Solveig, Gunnar, Bjartur and Thorgeir
