  • Description

    Description

    Please read the entire profile before sending us a request. The reason our reply rate is so low is that we get too many messages from people asking to come at times when none is needed, or from people who obviously wouldn't fit in with our lifestyle. Reading everything carefully will benefit both us and you.

    Help needed asap for:
    Tidying up around the farm.
    Small paint jobs.
    Fencing.
    Getting the farm nice for tourist season.

    You will be in the middle of the mountains, perfect terrain for hiking, skiing, fishing, and other outdoor activities.

    The personal connection is important for us, so please tell us as much as possible about yourself and your expectations.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our farm has been in the family since before 1850, and is now owned and run by the 7th generation. We also have cabins and rooms for rent to tourists. The family consists of Ola (father), Einy (mother), Irja (2012) and Håkon (2014). Situated in the Rondane Mountains, at the border of the national park, we have some of the worlds finest nature and wildlife literally just outside the door. In 2019 Cameron, former workawayer and good friend, joined us to make the tourist business better.

    The diet is heavily meat-based. We hunt moose, beaver, roe deer and reindeer.

    Help

    Some of it require heavy lifting and hard labour, some of it ingenuity and a willingness to learn. Whatever your talents may be, we have something you can help us with.

    You don't need much previous experience, it's more important for us that you're just a nice, decent person who is able to learn and willing to work alone on some of the tasks.

    What else ...

    If you like hiking, fishing, or anything else related to nature, this is the place for you. We have cabins in the mountain you can use, and boats for fishing trips. The grocery store is a ten minute walk, but the nearest small town is 45 minutes by car. We're both hunters and sports shooters, and try to get out of the living room a much as possible. Not that we're any good at it (at least not Ola), but we're trying.

No, it's not a church. It's the "stabbur".
