  • Description


    I'm a 45 years old man living in a quiet place in the middle of Norway on a farm with sheep's and cows, and I also run a motel. Downstairs live my friends and workers, him 28 and she 20.I have two adult children that come over sometimes. I want to meet someone who is interested in a healty lifestyle and hiking, exersice, ect. So if you have skills aboat this, its a big pluss. There will alto be some need help at the farm, taking care of the animals, farmwork, a little maintenance and at the motel with cleaning the rooms sometimes.
    Also some tasks like cooking, cleaning and buying groceries.

    You'll have a cabin or your own room. There are plenty of possibilities for your free time like many hiking trails to the mountains, the Fjord directly at my farm with lots of opportunities to swim if you dare or go fishing. You can also watch the northern lights here or the midnight sun. The next city is about 2,5 hours away but there is a boat two times a day.

    Work hours can be very flexible but approximately 5 hours per day.
    We try to adjust and be flexible, both ways

    Ps! its important you are mature and motivated for this ....

    It varies from feeding the sheep and cows, cleaning the shed, feeding the lambs, some maintenance like painting, cooking, cleaning, helping on the field, counting the cows outside (about a 30 min hike away), or cleaning the motel rooms. It depends on your profile.

    It's a very quiet but beautiful place. There is loads of opportunities for hiking and mountain climbing/ walks on the mountain as well as sailing, boat rides and fishing and other natural activities. The nearest city is Bodø which is about a 2,5 hours ferry ride away.
