  • Description


    We are two guys living in the mountain in Hemsedal on an old farm. We need help on the farm, and the farm does not have many animals, 20 hens and two cats. And we rent 6 rooms to tourists. We need help to feed and clean room for animals, clean guest rooms and maintain buildings. I also build a new office in the barn, which has many challenges. We are looking for a free worker (max 5 hours per day) + food and lodging. Hemsedal is a very popular skidestination in the winter and in summer there are wonderful mountains for walking and fishing and is it not far from Nibbi and Skogshorn in a populated ski area for downhill ski and cross country skiing. We try to find someone that can fit in the lifestyle in the mountains. At the same time, we have some animals that need to have food every day and cleaning, and rentals that have to be washed after guests have left. But an important issue that you must have carpentry experience and driver's license !! We live high in the mountains, no bus or public transport. If you enjoy downhill skiing and like to meet people and take care of animals, maybe it is you?
