  • 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 projects forward with our mid century house that we are redecorating 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" :)
