  • Beschreibung


    We are a couple living on a small island in Vesteraalen in Nothern Norway. There are only seven houses on the island and only two are permanently inhabited. There are no paved roads on no cars. The only way to get here is by boat.
    In winter we see northern lights (aurora borealis) and in summer the midnight sun. The views around us change constantly as the light is changing.
    We also have some Old Norse sheep to keep the arctic landscape open. They are pretty tough, staying outdoor all year, eating heather, the bark of trees and seaweed.

    When we go for walks on the shore we always pick up beach garbage and we appreciate if workawayers visiting us do the same. Over the years it has become less, but there is always something washing ashore.

  • Arbeit


    Next spring we need help painting the facades of our house and some help in the garden.

    The tasks will be varying like maintenance in- and outdoor, painting, in- and outdoor but also restoring furniture as we mostly use second hand furniture. Landscaping like repairing dirt roads and drain the soil around our house. We also need help wood chopping.

    Carpentry skills or other craft skills like bricklaying, landscaping or experience with animals are a plus.
    You should plan to stay at least for a month or more.

    Some of the outdoor help is only possible to be done between may and october.

    Workawayers will not be involved in preparing products we sell or working on the apartment we plan to rent out in the future.

    Separate bedrooms, you share bath, kitchen and living room with us. We have a twin bedroom for couples or two seperate bedrooms for individual workawayers.
    We will have most meals together and expect you to give us a hand with the daily house work, like sometimes preparing a meal and help clearing the table, tidying after meals and cleaning the common areas in the house in addition to keeping your own room clean.
    Absolutely no smoking in and around the house.

    This is a small island with only seven houses, people living permanently in two of them. No paved raods or possibility to bring a car. Parking is possible at the harbour where the public boat leaves.

    Nearest shop is a boat trip away.
    You can go for walks on the island and make day trips to islands nearby. Explore coastal history, hike in mountains, go fishing when weather conditions allow, if you are lucky you might get to see whales.
    In clear weather we often see the nothern light "aurora borealis" in the evening during the dark time of the year (september to march). May to August we have the bright nights when the sun never seems to set. Midnight-sun from 23rd of May to 23rd of July. Make sure to bring a camera with you and have plenty of space on your memorycard.
    The Lofoten islands are a couple of hours (by bus) away and are worth seeing all year round.
    Public transport: boat to and from the island five days a week (7 days a week from June 20 to August 15), connects three days a week with a bus to the nearest town with shops etc. The public boat also stops at several neighbouring islands which enables daytrips.
