  • Description


    Help us, Mirjam (musician and teacher; german/swedish) and Wolfgang (technician, builder, gas-specialist; austrian) to prepare our place for tourists at the lakeside in the middle of Sweden!

    This year will be our second summer on our „fairy-tale" lake-property in Hammerdal/Jämtland in Sweden.
    Soon we will welcome travellers and groups who want to spend a great relaxing time/vacation on our property. We will provide small houses at the waterfront as well for groups with programs like yoga, health, arts etc. as also for singles or families in absolute peace far away from hustling cities but easy to reach via car, airplane or train and bus. Here our guests will have the possibility to spend their time relaxing, canoing, fishing, sailing, hiking, skiing etc.
    In 63 degrees latitude on sandy soil with many granite stones, huge birches and pines - with a lot of light in summer and a lot of darkness in winter - and the view over the vastness of the lake, our guests can descend from the constraints of civilization, forget time and recharge their ”batteries“.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In the outback of Sweden, but near to Cities and civilisation you will find a place that inspires you both from nature and the people staying there. You can make up your mind for ideas, which can help us to fulfill our dream of a perfect hideway spot... You will learn about swedisch, german and austrian kulture - open minded thinkers are warmly welcome! Learn about our culture - learn about baking such as "fika" - the swedish style of coffee break ;-)

  • Help


    We need help with works in the wood, prepare firewood, shape the shore at the lake, cut reed, paint buildings, prepare the ground for new buildings and a parking-lot, some god cakes for "fika" - the swedish style of coffee break ;-)
