  • Description


    Our place is located Lodingen Vestbygd in the beginning of the Lofoten islands. Me - Gunnar and my wife Vibeke are running a small camp site with cabins, rorbus and rooms. We have a restaurant and offering guided fishing tours & outdoor trips. We have 16 motorboats for fishing and sea safaris. We provide accommodation in rooms, cabins & rorbus as well as the camping site. We also har a café, restaurant and a private marina with boat, canoe and kayak rentals.

    We offer activities and experiences; Deep sea fishing, diving, birdwatching. Moose & reindeer safaris. Eagle safaris. Northern Lights experiences. Hiking trails & countryside sightseeing.

    We especially search for somebody who is interested in working with tourism and could stay for a longer therm from May cause it is the main tourist season here.

    We are looking for enthusiastic, responsible, friendly and active people who in the first place want to help us with cleaning rooms and cabins, work in our restaurant, taking care of guests, helping with boats etc. Persons who know about repairing boats or handyman housework such as painting, gardening, repairs & small projects, etc. would be really helpful.

    NOTE! In August, September and October we are looking for handy persons who have experience with outdoor work such as painting buildings and roof, work with cutting wood and other things such as washing, cleaning, painting and repairing plastic boats.

    We offer you a good accommodation in a room, cabin or house only for workaways. We will give you the opportunity to get insights in our business, learning Norwegian and Norwegian culture, take part in our outdoor activities and be a part of our everyday life and business.

    In your spare time you can enjoy the outdoors (kayaking, fishing, hiking etc.) or just have a quiet time for your own interests.

    When responding, please put the dates that you are looking to stay with us as the subject line.

    We especially look for couples or friends between 25 and 50 years old that would like to experience to work in Northern Norway!

    Due to a lot of mails from you nice people we don't have time to answer you all. But please write short about yourself and your skills. If you have experience from other similar places in Norway that would be very helpful. Maybe you are the one we are looking for this summer.
