    We are Kristin and Gunnar, a busy pair in our mid fifties, with 4 grown up children. We run a small family business on the beautiful island of Senja, with focus on nature experiences. We are locatet in Skrolsvik in the south of Senja. We have 3 cabins, 5 boats for rent and a museumshop. In the summer season most of guests come for the great fishing opportunities . In the winter season guests come for the northern lights, hiking, skiing, and other winter activities.
    In addition to ordinary jobs, we need help whith house - and garden manitenance. Mostly outdoor.
    We look forward to introducing new people to village life in Northern Norway. We hope you will be a part of our family.
