  • Description

    Description

    Small forest farm in remote wildernes. Extreemly beautiful area with wolf, linx, bear, rare birds, wild berries, fish in the lake etc. kayaks and bicycles available.
    After the past farmhouse burnt down we are now building a new loghouse. The walls and roof are almost ready. Next exciting step will be the amazing heatingsystem. All very eco and practical.
    At the moment there is one person who is the owner of the place, but more people are involved in the development of this international center for living well.
