  • Description


    My place is at an old farm that's no longer in use as a farm. It's in a small village on 1 hour away from Tromsø by car on the south side of the lovely island Kvaløya. In the wintertime its possible to see the aurora from the bedroom windows. During summer here is bright as the day all 24 hours because of the midnight sun. There are also a ski track in the village. I love to take photos of the nature. In the summer it's possible to hike in the mountains around and go fishing in the sea.

    I have room for 2 workawayers at the time.

    Chores for the winter of 2022

    You need to be fully vaccinated to work for me. (two or more shots)!!!
    Please read the whole profile before sending a request.

    In the wintertime I need help to empty my old barn and then tear it down. I can guarantee that you will be dirty and have sore muscles. Hopefully you can see aurora and have some good time in the nature
    This summer a new building will be risen.

    May - September I will need help with gardening and cutting grass. It's not a big garden or grassfields so I need one or maybe two workawayers. If you have experience in gardening it will help.
    July-August I have a couple of dry stone walls to build. If you have experience doing that then I'm interested.

    July - September It's time to paint buildings and equipment.

    I have different kind of things that I need help with in and around the house like: painting, help with tidying, cooking, lawn moving, cutting grass, cutting firewood, clear a ski track for bushes and trees.

    I prefer that you are self driven in your help since I am away at work during daytime.

    I may be away some of the time during the summer. So you can't be afraid of being alone.

    Tell me when you can come and what skills you have.
