Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
You will be able to spend time in the stunning surroundings, hike and climb in the mountains, swim, canoe and fish in the river and spend evenings around a campfire.
Besides it is one of the most cultural places of Norway as the region is relative recently reachable. The tradition of music and culture is therefore still very visible.
We can learn you more about the history and culture of this region. Besides we would love to talk with you and learn you everything about organic farming and agriculture, as that is our daily work and main interest :).
As we both travelled a lot, we are very open minded and love to talk with people from other countries. We like to talk about differences in tradition, live style and politics.

Interested in helping out on an organic farm? And love to enjoy the amazing nature of Setesdal after the work by foot, cycle or canoe? Than read on :)
So we ask volunteers to help us out 5 days a week, 5 hours a day.
We prefer couples to stay. Our experience is, that that works the best.
We would also prefer a duration time of one month. In that time you will be able to learn everything you would like to learn while helping us out.
So we have two lovely kids and a farm with goats, a dog, bees, pigs and vegetables. We will make sure you won't be bored for one single day :)
We will discuss together what you would like to learn and do so we will make sure it will be a learningfull month. Ofcourse there are always things that need to be done, but often we do this together and so the jobs go fast and are more cosy :)
You will sleep close to the vegetable garden (100 from the farm) in a cosy cabin.
We would like to eat dinner together and make sure there is enough food for breakfast and lunch.
We do not need help in the winter time, but we would love to get in touch with the couples who are already planning there trip for spring/summer/autumn of 2024!!
