  • Description


    I am looking for some to help with some outdoor maintenance and cutting of firewood

    Need help for some weeks from 9.september

    There are maintenance around on the farm, firewood cutting, tidying

    I am preparing a cross country skitrack in the winter in the summertime there are a bit maintenance as well so be ready to participate in that work as well.

    I need one person who are selfdriven and can work together with me or alone. If you like hiking that's a plus.

    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.

    June - September
    I have different kind of things that I need help with in and around the house like: painting, help with tidying, take care of my dog, lawn moving, cutting grass, cutting firewood, clear a ski track for bushes and trees. The usual kind of maintenance on a farm.

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

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

  • Accommodation


    Bedroom, food and some transportation. I serve fish several times a week when I have guests and prefer that you eat fish and food from animals to have the meals as easy as possible. I also would like to taste your cooking.

    I prefer that you don't arrive any later to Tromsø than around 5pm. The last bus from the city/airport leaves 16.15 so I need to pick you up after that. It is an hour drive one way to the airport sand it would be great if I can pick you up on my way from work.
