    We are searching for All-rounders! You will help renovating the houses, help with landscaping, cooking and support the general on-going events. Play with the dogs if you want and cleaning also needs to happen. If you are a creative person and love art please stop by as well.
    We want you to have a great time as well but some times things need to be done that are less fun, like the cleaning ;).

    If you love nature, you're social than we have lots of opportunity for you to enjoy beautiful forest walks, swimming, sauna and skiing.

    We have a 25-hour week, with 2 days off a week. In general you help 5 hours a day. We make sure that every day you have a stretch of free time every day to enjoy the place and the surroundings. In general we aim for people between 18-35 years old. We prefer people who wish to stay a minimum of 2 weeks and we have a maximum of 4 weeks.

  • Accommodation


    You'll have your own private room in the main building where you will live with other volunteers.
    You share the bathroom, toilet, kitchen, living room, sauna, hot tub and (outside) hangout

    We provide ingredients for making your own breakfast, plus we serve a lunch and dinner each day, that will be cooked by us or one of the volunteers.

    We have no problems if you feel like be for yourself and enjoy your own space on your spare time and if you feel like join other workawayers you can do that too. Sometimes we all together can go on shorter trips. It's important that we all do what we feel like and respect each other. Although we like to be social, John and myself, we also sometimes need our own space for a little while

    Please only serious inquiries as we rely on people who confirm dates to us.

    IMPORTANT!!! Please note that our own insurance does NOT covers volunteers/employees. Although we will of course make every precaution to prevent accidents, we strongly recommend you to buy a travel insurance that covers manual work, from World Nomads or similar. The Swedish healthcare it is very good for EU volunteers, but you need to have a European health insurance card. They are free from your country's insurance system, so please get one of those before arriving to us.

    We do prefer that a workawayer stay a minimum of 2 weeks - maybe longer (if we get along well and like each other)! :-) (maximum of 6 weeks).
