  • Description


    Hello. My name is Jorunn, I'm a woman of 53 years and in 2020 I bought a small farm in the North of Norway. The last family left in 1952, and all houses where in deperate need of makeover. I love to do things by myself, and have a lot of help from family and friends. Still I need more help to manage all the different task in my life. I am an easy person to live with and to work for, and the things I need help to do is allmost everything that farmlife can be. Painting, carpenting, making firewoods, cleaning, housekeeping, farming, fishing- there is a lot of funny and hard work to do for one or two or several people. My house is big, and you will have a nice stay here if you appriciate nature and easy living. I have dogs and one cat for the moment, but I also have a horse kept nearby. This I use for work , for ex timberwork.
    I live close to the sea, have my own boot that makes fishing easy
    I have family living nearby and we help eathother a lot. Living with me you will get to know a lot of nice people, and maybe work together with some of them.
    Still, I work outside the farm as a farrier and as a lumberjack and you will be on your own during daytime.
    I look forward to see you at my farm and to have someone helping me to develop this heavenly nice place I got.
    I also have two cabins in the mountains that needs painting and care, close to several fishing places.

    Easy, primitive life in beautiful nature. Hard, oldfashion farmlife if you what to. Just to wake up and be in this part of Norway is a gift to anyone who enjoy nature. We have a midnightsun in summertime og northern lights in wintertime. Usually we have a lot of snow and a really nice and cold winter.

  • Accommodation


    You will have your own room and also your own livingroom if you like. Still we share bathroom and kitchen. My house is really old, but very nice and special. I keep it warm with severel fireplaces.
    We share meals together.
    In your time off you can do skiing, fishing, walk in the mountains (use my two cabins) take the train one hour to Bodø for citylife, go climbing etc, ride my horse if you have experience etc.
    To come here without a car is easy: you can go by train to Rognan or by plane to Bodø and train form there.
