  • Description


    I am Elsa, 75 year old woman here at Northern Norway. I need some help with my home now when i learning to be pensioner.

    I need help in housekeeping, cooking, cleaning, small restorations/renovations, gardening, snow shovelling in winter and other daily tasks. I am Norwegian, but speaking quite good english and finnish too, so it would be nice if you speak one of those languages. The people that live in the village mostly speak Norwegian, Finnish and also English. Accommodation and meals are free. You will have your own room. Fast Wi-Fi is provided.

    Bugoynes is an exceptional place with great history which I would love to tell you about. I live in a house on the beach. You can try the sauna and go swim. The views are great and there are nice places for walking and taking photographs! In winter there can be northenlights and in summer there is midnight sun.

    This is an exceptional place, where you can try the sauna and swim in the Arctic sea. We have very beautiful winters with Northern Lights, and white summer nights. It will be an exceptional and unique experience for anyone interested in the beautiful nature of Norway and the rich culture of Finnmark.
