  • Description


    My husband and I have 5 wonderful children, we live partly at Lavangsnes and partly in Stockholm. Some of our children are now adults and have their independent lives. As years passed, we never got to fulfil our dreams about the farm. This lovely old historic farm (300 years) need love and caring. We want more people from all over the world to be able to experience the scenic view, the old energy and the lovely house. Do you know easy carpeting, how to paint walls, like cleaning, gardening, foresting....please join us. The farm is 30 meters from the arctic fjord, actually the garden ends by the fjord, amazing mountains are surrounding the place and you get to feel how people have been living for generations in the arctic north. In periods alone or if you prefer, when we are there. The house is a large log made house. With 7 bedrooms, although 4 of them is only to be used during the summer. This is a place for people who would like peace and quiet and a rural life.
