  • 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 4 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.

    Our place is located on a small island with ca 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.

    I can possibly host one or two persons in november for a week or so. I will be at work weekdays and Torstein is out at sea. Tasks will be helping out with the animals, making dinner, daily house chores, getting the place ready for winter 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.
