    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.

  • Help


    During the summer months we need help at home and at the camping.

    At home/the farm we need help with taking care of our almost two years old baby, Lente.
    We would like to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner together. We can discuss together how you and Lente will spend your time together.
    You can for example walk with her to the goats or the playground on the camp site.
    Besides we might ask you to help Caren with prepairing food, doing dishes etc.

    At the camp site, we especially need help with cleaning as well as some maintainance and other small jobs.
    We work in the morning. The cleaning tasks consist of cleaning the toilet building and cabins. Afterwards David may ask you to help with cutting some wood, painting, timbering, repairing etc. In the afternoon you are free to go hiking and climbing in our beautiful area. Read more about this below :).
