    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am new to workaway, but I have been a host on another platform for many years and I really enjoy the cultural exchange, share life and ideas and the possibility to make friends around the world. My last helpers (now friends) stayed with me for a long time and they introduced me to workaway. I will do what I can to make your stay comfortable and interesting. I will be happy to take you skiing, hiking, fishing or discover other things in the area.

    Help

    I bought my farm 3 years ago and I have several big and small projects that I could need some help with. Trying to redecorate the house, both inside and outside. Never ending fencing for the goats, big and small building projects. Housesitting and helping with the animals (sometimes my work requires me to work long days or to stay overnight).

    Accommodation

    You will have your own room in my house and we will share bathroom, kitchen ect. The home is at your disposition.

    I will provide ingredients for food, but would be happy to have some help cooking. I have plenty of fish (wild fish) and game meat (red deer, moose) and goat meat from the farm. I am happy to eat vegetarian, but it helps if you will eat local fish and meat too.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have great mountains and winters with plenty snow normally. I have a bicycle you can use, and a kayak. Other outdoor equipment can be provided. I also have a cabin in the mountains (no water or electricity) that you can use if you want to.
    There are reasonably good bus transportation nearby (3km), but if you have a car your life will be a lot easier. Helping me is flexible so if you wish you could also ask for extra parttime work nearby (Beitostølen, Heggenes or Fagernes).
