  • Description


    We are a family of 2 adults and 4 children living next to Tiveden National Park in Sweden, Tived.
    Our place is situated really beautifully next to the lake of the national park. To be here gives you the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere and we are surrounded of a wild forest with many lakes and lots of berries and mushrooms to pick.

    We work with tourism and run a hostel and activity center.
    We rent canoes, kayaks and bikes for tourists who wants to explore the surroundings. We also organize horseback riding tours and have a high rope course.
    We have 14 horses, chickens, dogs and cats.
    We love nature and adventure and hope to meet volunteers who likes similar things in life as there is a lot to do here if you're into nature.

    We think that our volunteers will get the opputunity to see the swedish wild forest and be able to explore it as we try as much as we can to lend bikes and camping gear and help them to get out in the beautiful nature surrounding us.

    We need volunteers that can help us with many different things. Everything from trimming, lawn mowing, painting, moving stuff and cleaning.
