  • Description


    We are a family of five living in the west coast of Norway. Beate (36) works as an accountant, Torstein (36) a typical norwegian fisherman, and our kids 16, 6 and 5 years old.
    We live on a small farm with six goats, quails, and twenty-something hens. We would love some extra hands in periods, doing garden work, painting, house chores, helping with the animals and similar.

    We love travelling and meeting new people, but with small children and fulltime work - time is limited. That's why we want to invite the world at our place instead for a win-win situation.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our place is located on a small island with about 2500 people. The island is flat, but we have a lot of beautiful hiking trips close on the main land. We have kayaks that can be used and can arrange boat for fishing (summer).

    This place fits to those who wants to be close to nature and sea, or just relax listening to the birds (and our rooster) :- D

    If you are looking for the northern light this is not the best place, go further north.

    Unfortunatly we are selling this place summer of 2021. :( Because of that we would love to host one or two workawayers helping us in that situation. Tasks will be getting the place prepared for sale, garden work, helping out with the animals and kids, making dinner, easy maintenance tasks, daily house chores and other tasks.

    If you are not in Norway already, you must have completed the 10 days quarantine before arriving.

    We stick to the 20-25 hours work a week. The volunteering hours can be agreed on and is very flexible.
