  • Description


    We're a married couple thats been together since we were kids basically. 15 years and counting! We are blessed with two beautiful children but we don't have enough hours every day to get our project forward with our house or our eco-hotel project, so we thought maybe workaway would be the way to go! Langhamn is an old historic property situated in Dyrøy (directly translates to Animal Island). Dyrøy is in the Senja region (home of iconic Segla mountain) and is the greenest island in the area with a special climate because we're hidden between the island Senja (Norways second largest island) and the mainland giving us very good "shelter from the storm" :) I work as market- and communications manager for Visit Senja Region while my husband works for the local firedepartment and is currently studying to become a paramedic.
