 Min stay requested: at least 3 weeks

  • Description


    We are only looking for people with construction experience iMinimum stay is 4 weeks.

    We have 250 different rescue animals living with us on a regular basis, and we rescue non stop more animals in need all the time. It is a huge job, to much for 1 person to do alone.

    so if you want to be the person making it balance by giving the recommended 5 hours of work a day, 5 days a week in return for all the food you can eat and shelter.

    Do you have a strong compassion for animals, or do you just want to reconnect with these by the force of nature innocent animals, please contact me for more information on this site.

    Our experience is, that it works best with "work aways" who travel 2-3 people together.

    OBS! Due to upcoming new laws in Denmark, we do no longer accept south Americans, who wants to come to Denmark, for a working holiday visa. The law is going to change in 2020.
    Who can apply to stay with us -

    1. This is not your first workaway stay and you have at least 1 host review, before writing to us.

    2. You are minimum 25 years old

    3. You will respect that we dont accept alcohol or drugs in the camp, and that we dont allow smoking inside the campers and tents.

    5. You will respect the rules of this place, and keep your camper and camp area, nice and clean at all times

    6. it is required that you will stay for minimum 3 weeks.

    We have build a small workaway village, in the forrest. 4 Traditional campers with 2 big beds(2 people in each double bed), small kitchen area, mall room with shower. It has heat and electricity, and is super cozy. The outhouse is the old fashion kind outside among the trees :)

    The campers has it place in the Forrest close to the house, and it is work in progress. A really wonderful peaceful place to stay. We are still working at the campsite, and in time this will be like a small workaway village, where people from all over the world can hang out after work, and make a campfire or start up the BBQ. There is a traditionel indian sweat hut, where you can spend time after work. Life here is totally back to basic and really laid back

    Please keep in mind that the life at the countryside, is very simple and in some ways maybe primitive,compared to the city life. Our place is for people who would like to connect with the nature, and who can in-joy the simple countryside lifestyle we live. This is the perfect place to reconnect with the nature, our animals and private forrest works like magic, on everyone staying here.

    On weekdays the workaway camp guests are cooking by them self at the campsite. The daily life is crazy busy for Susen, so it will be to much, to cook for all the guests every day. But on saturdays Susen cooks for everyone and we all have dinner in the house.
