We look forward to welcoming you in Oppdal, Norway. We are a family of three (including a 1.5 years old baby) who took over a place with a rich history. It is from 1890 and is part of a series of farmhouses in this area.
Primarily, we can host 1-2 volunteers all around the year who can assist us in some indoor and outdoor works. Workawayers can lend us a hand in renovation, painting, gardening, maintenance, general cleaning and household works. We are looking for independent, reliable and matured individuals who can tolerate Norwegian weather conditions.
We do not have much works sometimes but it is always nice to have an extra hand and for us to be able to help volunteers who are travelers, students and explorers of the Norwegian nature.
The works are straight and simple.
During summer, the main tasks will be that volunteers need to do gardening (cutting grass, weeds), house cleaning, maybe some painting etc. We will teach you how to use the grass cutter & grass trimmer if you do not know.
During winter, instead of grass cutting the main tasks will be that volunteers need to clean the snow in the property. We have both manual shovel and machine to do the job. We are happy to teach how to use them but you should be willing to use them regularly by yourself. If you are not afraid of snow, wind and being independent then this is the right place for you.
In addition, there may be some other small tasks in both seasons like lend us a hand in maintenance works, and if you are interested and have skills then IT related tasks (photography, video, website design, network server, music systems etc). If you are a professional writer then this is the perfect peaceful place for your writing. There are plenty of nature around here, hiking and skiing possibilities. You will have plenty of time for yourself.
We are curious and interested in learning new culture and new ideas. We appreciate and welcome everyone. We also welcome native English speakers who have a passion in writing, to help us with some narratives. Volunteers can stay minimum 2 weeks or months or more. We prefer as long as stay as possible. We can host for longer period too. Feel free to contact us about your travel plans.
Oppdal is well known for its active outdoor activities all year round. From skiing to hiking, biking, fishing, boating, swimming and many more. For more info see the website of "visit Norway"
