  • Description


    We no longer have sheep, so we're going all in on the tourist business. Which means tidying up, painting, fencing and upgrading. For June/July, we need help with fish spots. Clearing branches, removing what have been cleared before, and ground work for lean-to's and fire pits. If you have a strong back and want to start your day with black coffee (or learn how), we would like to be your host until the work is done, approx. 3-4 weeks.

    Our farm has been in the family since before 1850, and is now owned and run by the 7th generation. We also have cabins and rooms for rent to tourists. The family consists of Ola (father), Einy (mother), Irja (2012) and Håkon (2014). Situated in the Rondane Mountains, at the border of the national park, we have some of the worlds finest nature and wildlife literally just outside the door. In 2019 Cameron, former workawayer and good friend, joined us to make the tourist business better.

    The diet is heavily meat-based. We hunt moose, beaver, roe deer and reindeer.

  • Help


    Some of it require heavy lifting and hard labour, some of it ingenuity and a willingness to learn. Whatever your talents may be, we have something you can help us with.

    You don't need much previous experience, it's more important for us that you're just a nice, decent person who is able to learn and willing to work alone on some of the tasks.

    If you like hiking, fishing, or anything else related to nature, this is the place for you. We have cabins in the mountain you can use, and boats for fishing trips. The grocery store is a ten minute walk, but the nearest small town is 45 minutes by car. We're both hunters and sports shooters, and try to get out of the living room a much as possible. Not that we're any good at it (at least not Ola), but we're trying.

No, it's not a church. It's the "stabbur".
