We are Gudrun and Helgi, a retired Icelandic couple, medical doctors, living in Reykjavik. Helgi´s mother´s family comes from the valley Svarfaðardalur. We have renovated an old farmhouse, Gröf, in the valley, where we often enjoy our holidays. The house we are renting out on Airbnb, Skrida, is on the land belonging to the farm. We have five children and 12 grandchildren and all of us love the valley, enjoying it all year round. We have enjoyed hiking, skiing, swimming and horse-riding there. We are forest farmers and have already planted many different trees on our land that are growing slowly. We both enjoy reading, the theatre and classical music and have led an active enjoyable life.
