Do you enjoy meeting new people, experiencing beautiful nature and working together with varied tasks as a team? Come and help us out at here this season! This is an old small village located in the middle of the deep forests of Tiveden, which is now converted to a hostel and a café/restaurant with many small buildings and cottages.
We are a group of friends who have been living here and running the hostel since 2014. We take care of everything by ourselves, for example managing the café, baking, serving dinners, taking care of our animals, maintaining buildings, cleaning etc. We are looking for volunteers who wants to join our team and experience real wilderness in Sweden.
The hostel is open from April-October, and a lot of different things are happening in this time. Mainly our guests come to enjoy the unique peaceful atmosphere, but it's also popular for big groups to rent the entire village for a wedding or a huge party.
We also have a lot of live music in our café during the summer, and lots of international artists have played here over the years. We also organize our own music festival, Electric Moon Fest, every year.
We enjoy spending a lot of time together with volunteers, working together, go swimming, jamming, partying, playing football (important!) and do other sports etc. There is also a lot of things to do in your spare time, if you enjoy outdoor activities. We are located far from any city, so be prepared to spend most of your time in the middle of the forest. The majestic national park of Tiveden is only a few kilometers away, with crystal clear lakes and breathtaking hikes.
We are looking for volunteers who are team players yet independent and self-going, flexible and willing to do any kind of task.
We look forward to hear from you!
