We are Dag Ivar and Marion, who live on a small island in Vesteraalen i the northern part of Norway. In summer we have the midnightsun, where it never gets dark. In autumn and winter you can experience the northern lights besides a few hours of daylight. We have fantastic wild nature around us which gives you the opportunity for all kind of outdoor activities. Whether you like hiking, fishing, hunting, skiing, rowing, picking berries and mushrooms: it's all possible. Due to the silence, it's also a great place to think, meditate and slow down.
We produce on our food in order to be mostly self supported. Besides growing potatoes, herbs and vegetables, we pick berries in order to make jams and juices, we bake our own bread. We go out to fish our own fish.
- repair of buildings
- gardening (vegetables)
- making firewood. You must be able to operate a chainsaw safely and be able to be by your self in the woods.

You will live on your own in a house that's over 200 years old and stands directly at the sea. The house is under slow reconstruction. It's cosy, simple and quiet: no television and a woodstove for heating. With the provided food you prepare your own meals. There is no electricity. Cooking and warm water is with gas.
We prefer people who care about cleaning and keep the house in good condition.
Our house is about 200 steps away.
We both have jobs that require time away from the island. The help we need you to be do will be discussed by a meet up from time to time. Some times we work together, but mostly you will work on your own. Because of this we prefer a person who is positive minded and have the mentality, responsibility and selfmotivation to live and work by yourself. Please note that this is a little place with no shops around and only a handfull of people. You need to be comfortable in your own company, we take only one workawayer at a time.
