    Our farm is a farmstead situated on the cost of the island of Andøy in the region of Lofoten and Vesterålen in the northern parts of Norway. We do also run a guesthouse on the property, but now I seek help to maintain and develop the farm and landscape.

    But now I am seeking help to maintain the farm, with the garden and paths for walking and recreation on my land. I try to be as close to nature as possible and would also like to leave less of a trace in nature. I would really appreciat help in my prosess of making a vegatable garden and starting to compost leftovers from the garden and kitchen. I am also doing some refurbishing, and would like help to do some staining and painting during the summer.

    And of course, I do have a cat called Sara, living in the house with me, she is a real caracter and would probably great you by arrival.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    I have for many years been a host for a cultural farm exchange and have been welcoming young people to my home, and into the local culture and gastronomy of northern Norway. I have also been taken my exchange helpers to our attractions and nearby villages so they get an idea of what we do and offer here.

    The farmstead is located by the sea, yet close to the mountains and the forrest in the arctic north, and in a village with great viking heritage. So by coming here you will be able to learn a lot about our local life and viking heritage. I think you could have some unique experiences regarding our heritage, beautiful nature, silence and even superb wildlife, hiking and whale watching.

    I would really like some help to get control over my garden of berries, and making more paths in my little but quite magical forrest, by cutting and sawing branches to make pathways as well as cutting the gras to make paths down to the water where we enjoy the midnight sun. Maintaining and weeding the few flowers and herbs we manage to save during summer. Hopefully, we might even get some paint and staining done during summer too. I am also working to make a bigger green area containing flowers to attract butterflies and bees, that could also be a workaway task.

    I offer accommodation in a separate and newly refurbished appartement in the basement of my hose. Here you would have your separate entrance and a beautiful view of the arctic see from the living room. The appartement contains of 3 bedrooms, sitting room, kitchenette, hallway with common washer and dryer, a newly refurbished bathroom and separate toilet room The appartement would also be possible to certify for use during a quarantine stay.

    We are situated in a really beautiful area of the north surrounded by the ocean and the mountains.
    People come here to do beautiful mountain hikes, experience a unique wildlife and whales, and to experience the midnight sun and Northern lights.

    We live in the little village of Bø in Andøy and there are no shops here, but we do have buss services, and the possibility of getting around with a car, so you should might want to have a driver license.

    If you like quiet rural experiences close to nature you will find it adorable I think.
