    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    To be in Northern Norway at the Lyngenfjord during summer, is a really nice experience, when you are eager to enjoy the arctic nature and the midnight sun.

    You need to love to be outside in the nature. Doing hiking trips in the region, go fishing, mountain biking, kayaking.... It's a dream destination for all outdoor enthusiasts...
    Therefore I am living here :-)
    I could take you on many hikes and other exciting activities, but I promosed myself, that this summer I need to focus on my house :-)
    But I can give you plenty of advice what to do in your free time.
    I have a car you can borough (not every day, but quite often), a kayak, a smal boat to go fishing...

    There is a smal grovery store 3 km from my house. the next village with more shops is 25 km away. Tromsø is 3 hourse away.

    After a few winter with chilli temperatures in my house, I decided to renowate my house.
    Since summer 2018 I made a new roof, new isolation around the whole house, new windows and a extension for a bigger bathroom/sauna and entrance.
    I am a handy guy, and I do most of the jobb myself.
    But since I have a regular work, I would like to have some help.
    I am looking for somebody with the right skills - if you are a carpenter, that could be perfect.
    But if you are handyman and you did this kind of work before, that could help as well.
    The main work for the coming month is to paint the house outside and inside and to do some other things.
    If you think, that you can do this kind of work and you are able to work alone as well, you are welcome!
