    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a Workawayer with us you'll expect to learn a lot about Nordic nature, wildlife, environmental issues and caring for animals. We also have a strong conservation message at the Moose Park and we like to pass a little of that on to our Workawayers.

    You'll also meet some great new people, make friends, experience Nordic life and have some fun. You will be given plenty of free time to relax, explore the area and do whatever you like. We will also plan group activities to do in the area! As well as the moose park we have a canoe hire centre so you can borrow and canoe and explore the place whenever you're free!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    This place is often called Sweden in miniature and it certainly lives up to that in many ways. With a population density of only 17/sq km compared with about 395/sq km in Netherlands and England, it’s a comparatively peaceful and quiet place to be. It offers great nature, vast areas of forest with river valleys carving though the hills and lowlands. The region is home to many species of birds and animals including beaver, elk, bear, wolf and lynx. Even the elusive wolverine has been spotted on rare occasions in the forests around Ekshärad in recent years.
    Come at the right time and you will find wild food in abundance, mushrooms, lingon, blueberries, cloud berries to name but a few.
