WOW Air wants to pay YOU, and a friend, partner, anyone you consider half of your "dynamic duo" to move to Iceland this summer.

The two lucky candidates will hop between Reykjavík and the airline's 38 destinations, creating blogs, videos and photos while rating the best food, hospitality and nightlife.

The low-priced carrier is launching the WOW Travel Guide competition on April 23. The airline says that it is looking for full of life, fun loving pair of individuals who could think big.

Per Business Insider, Wow Air will set up one lucky duo in a fully furnished apartment in downtown Reykjavik, which will serve as home base from June 1 to August 15, with a $4,000 monthly stipend for each.

From Iceland, you will be taking flights to all over the world to their destination locations, while promoting self-created content and talking about the destinations as an official "WOW Air Travel Guide".

According to Business Insider, the winners will be allowed to choose which destinations they'd like to visit.

What does an air-travel guide do? You will be able to bring along a friend during your 3-month journey and even earn money while holidaying! The role comes with a salary of about $4,000 per month plus transportation and travel and living expenses.

To apply, you have to make a video travel guide of your hometown (max 2 mins) with your travel buddy here. The contest is open to candidates across the world.

The Icelandic airline posted the job earlier this week and will accept applications until May 14, with the victor being announced on May 18.

The adventure for the winners begins June 1.
