    Description

    Hi! My name is Haavard .I live in the beautiful valley of Angedalen. Im 29 years old and work as a handyman for a living. I also cooperate with a fellow farmer. Together we have a local farmshop. There we sell meat, wool, handcrafts ++.

    It's a really nice view in the valley, and the worlds freshest air. I live close to the wild untouched forrest,but still only 8km from the nearest grocerystore. My farm is in Foerde (Førde) in Sogn og Fjordane. The nearest airport is called Førde (Foerde) airport.

    This is a paradise if you like mountainhikes both in the summertime aswell as the wintertime. Førde is located in the end of a Fjord, and the local river is wellknown for its salmonfishing-opportunities.

    I have a appartment that you will use of you work at the farm. The house is from 1985, so there are all the modern things that u need, like wifi, laundryroom, shower, kitchen and so on.

    The cabin you will use when you heard the sheeps is located 45min walk from the house. There is only 4g internet. No wifi,no electricity. And a small river outside to find water in. Gas oven for cooking.

    Within 1 hour drive you can experience glacier, close by (10 mins by car)is also salmonfishing, rafting, mountain, fjords, big riverfalls, shoppingcenter, spa, trainingcenter, local brewery, cayakpadling and much more.

    My bestfriend has a ecofarm, and there is often a lot of volunteers there, so im used to speaking english and meeting strangers from all over the world:)
    Summertime is a pretty busy time for me, so I will be working a lot. There is not so many buses around my neighbourhood, but I do have a couple of bicycles that will come in handy if you wanna get around.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will live in a beautiful valley, with the surroundings of wild nature close by. But the nearest supermarket is only 10 mins away by car. I will instruct you in how you do the different tasks.

    I can show you how to get around on the mountains using an app on your phone if you like mountainhikes. I also have a cabin on the mountain that you can use:)
