  • Beschreibung


    My name is Leif Henry. I am a quiet and calm man aged 61, I am divorced and live alone on the farm. It is an old farm and it needs maintenance and repairs. Since I am mostly alone here, help is needed from time to time. Behoved is both outside and inside. Cutting grass, making firewood, Maintenance and repair of tools and machines, shoveling snow, cleaning. And things like that. I live in the perfect place for northern lights and midnight sun, close to the fjords, the oceans and the mountains 1.5 - 2 hours driving to the lovely Vesterålen, Lofoten and Senja.

    Helping at my place will give you knowledge about northern norwegian and some sami culture. Sometimes I can offer trips and nature experiences, depending on season, it can be boat trips, fishing trips, Mountain hiking, skiing... Etc. Of the sights in Grovfjorden, one can mention the House in the Sea, which is an old school building that is today mainly used for cafe operation and rental for various events. It is not open every day, but the locals try to stay open on Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the year,We also have a power plant museum about 5 km from where I live
    . We have many marked hiking trails in the local area and a trip on the "Krigstien" can be especially exciting, den forteller om 2. Verdenskrig i Grovfjord, it tells about World War II in Grovfjord. If you have a qr scanner on your phone, you can use this in several languages. There are on display copies of fex a cannon and one which the occupiers also set up trenches used to stop the allies' attempt to recapture Grovfjord, after it had fallen. The information is in several languages ​​and there is also additional information on the qr code that can be scanned, this is also in several languages. When it comes to the paths in the area, these are often named after who used or found the best route from one place to another, this is also the sign. Grovfjorden is a fjord which is open all year round, but where the inner part of the fjord is iced over in winter. It is a good fishing fjord that can be fished both from land and by boat. There is also a private man who has collected objects and tools from ancient times and this may also be worth a visit.

    house: help with cleaning, washing, cooking
    Food: participate in cooking for lunch, dinner and evening. Make suggestions for what we can make. Breakfast is made by each of us, as it is likely that we wake up at different times, if you get up at the same time, it is nice to eat this meal. My next project is to prepare and plant vegetables. I have a goal of being able to grow my own vegetables without using pesticides. These are things that I hope to get done at the beginning of June.
