    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will experience life in a Norwegian family. Guests that have been here before, just take part in our daily life, there is always a need for an extra helping hand.

    The tasks will vary according to the weather: when rain, no painting, less outdoor work, when nice weather, more outdoor. There is always something to do in connection with the farm shop.

    It's easy to go hiking in the mountains that surround us on all sides. Also fishing is easy from here.

  • Help


    Because of the farm shop we need to have people around in the summer season. We open the shop only when customers come, but we need to be at home on the farm.

    Then depending on the weather, we need to paint outdoor this summer, there will be some gardening, some cleaning. some cooking - it depends on the skills and on the weather.

    What else ...

    We live in a small and quiet place. Outdoor activities are easy from here. It's easy to go into the mountains in very nice areas where there will be no tourists. But there are not many people around, no pub or anything like that.
