We, Bjørnar and Svanhild, have been passionate about preserving the old traditions. We grow the old traditional potato varieties in an organic way, all for private use. We also grow some organic vegetables for private use, and we have some sheep. We like to pick berry directly from the nature and make juice and jam, all for private use. We take an active and healthy approach to life through food, work and religion. We are Christians. We like reuse.
We like to continue the good work the parents and ancestors started. There are many chores and we want to put buildings and things in order. As you can appreciate, this is a lifestyle, rather than 9 to 5. Our working hours can vary from day to day, so to the length of the days, depending on the work involved and the weather. The days mainly consist of taking care of the property depending of the season indoor or outdoor, but it is always nice work to do, but when the work is done. We have free time and get to explore and discover Finmark and more about Norway.
Because we live so far north, we have short, hectic summers and long winters. Days are long with the midnight sun for 2 months in summer. The first autumn frost usually (but not always) comes sometime in August - we do hope the frost will come much later this year! Then we have the “dark period” or polar night for 2 months from late November (with a few hours of twilight in the middle of the day) and a very unstable climate. We have seen the northern light - aurora borealis, in the last days of August, September, October, November, December, January, February, March and to the middle of April. It depends of the weather. But when it comes to the weather, we just never know, because of this the help is varied. We prefer that volunteers to stay at least three weeks though it is not an absolute requirement, we feel you get more out of the experiance and tasks are planned better.
From April - September we have light nights, a fantastic time. We can see the midnight sun in May, June and July. We love the light nights.
What we can offer in return apart from the the wild and beautiful nature of Finmark is a pleasant and inclusive atmosphere, you will find us very easy to get along. Many people from all over the world have had a fabulous time here and a few have come back.

Here are good possibilities for hiking - both up on the rather low mountains for a beautiful view of the area, or along the shoreline of the beautiful Porsanger fjord (fourth longest in Norway at 123 km long). Børselv has the world's northernmost pine forest, a canyon and some beautiful dolomite cliffs. Bus goes daily (except Saturdays) and we have some older bicycles.
