Activity for Sverre, and help to keep the house organized and clean.
My name is Runhild and I live with my son Sverre in Reine. We are working on transforming our new home into a yoga and seaweed centre, and temporary home for adventurous spirits. This summer we are renting out rooms on Airbnb, to finance the second part of the renovation project.
In the end of September, we will close the house for guests, and focus on working on the last leg of renovations in the house and preparing for turning it into a retreat/workshop center.
If you're looking for a great place in Norway and are strong in the following skills please send us a message. For the summer we are also looking for a person that can be a dedicated to do activities with Sverre. We have a little wooden boat, and live close to the football field.
This place was originally build to be the landlords home, but later on it was used as the town hall of the beautiful little town of Reine in Moskenes, one of the south islands of Lofoten.
It is located next to the bus stop and ferry to Vinstad and Kjerkfjord. It is 5 km from the ferry connecting Moskenes with Bodø. It is also right next to the local café, restaurant and convenience store, as well as kayaking and diving centres. It is on the doorstep of many great day hikes, museums and the most spectacular scenery in Lofoten.
The house is a three-storey building with 10 bedrooms. The ground floor is currently in the process of being transformed into a yoga studio.
At the moment the house has the shower is in the cellar. The kitchen is fully equipped with a beautiful view overlooking the fjords. There is also a common lounge with an open fireplace.

The house has 10 bedrooms equipped with beds and linen. Depending on the number of volunteers it is possible to have individual space wintertime, but in the summer workawayers have to share the room. The beds are new.
Helping out a few hours each day still gives you plenty of time to explore the natural beauty of Lofoten.
Our home is vegetarian- friendly, and welcomes openhearted and caring people.

We have pets

We have been hosts for one year now, and we have had amazing helpers from all over the world. It has truly been a year of expanding for both my family and the house. The workawayers have impressed me deeply, as beautiful souls, great contributers and new friends for life. I am also so grateful for the fun and help my son found - so thank you all!
