  • Description


    We are a family of four, with our girls on 7 and 13 years old. Because of having the girls quite young we prefere to take female workawayers. We run a horse farm in the north of Norway. We have 12-18 horses in our facilities through the year. Under the midnight sun during summer time, and the Northern lights during winter time you might enjoy the freshair, and silence at our farm. The farm is 1,2 km from sentrum where the food stores and some lokal restaurantes is placed. it is only 1 hour by boat to Tromsø og 2 hours by car. The fairy tail island Senja is our neighbour, and it takes less than an hour to drive there for magic moments in the spectacular nature.

    The mountains around the farm is also well suited for hicking. The area also have a lot of fishing spots. We fish both in the lake beside our house, and in the sea.
    If you like to be outside, and use the nature, our farm is the perfect visit. It is always some work that has to be done, feeding horses, fiksing fences, and different constructing work, but we find the time to enjoy our faboulus surroundings as well.

    We need help with daily tasks on the farm, and training of our horses. Both school horses and horses that come in for training and sale. We also welcome you who can help us with houscleaning and cooking hot meals in a hectic everyday :) We have a lot of friends, and always have a lot of children in our house, so you have to like communicating and playing with them.
    We also have a lot of tourists visiting for riding and it will be super if you can help us to make those who you can communicate with to feel welcome ;)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    When you have time off we hope that you will get to know the area, and maybe you will find some activities you like near by. It is a lot of possibilities if you like singing or playing an instrument. the local church is only 1 km away, and all activities is near by sentrum which is the same distance from the farm.

    It is not so many buses, but it is possible to go bu bus to the nearest town almost every day, and when we get to know you we might borrow you one of our cars, if possible.

    We like to keep it tidy in our house, and especially at our kitchen, and expect the same from our visitors. we have two livingrooms witj a TV in, so if you want to take a quiet moment by yourself it is possible, but as you know we have children, and that has to be concidered. we can not have parties with alcohol, or loud music at any time. Our children are our priority number one.
