  • Descripción



    We're a group of friends who bought an old factory in Henningsvær, Lofoten, some years ago. We've now turned it into a cultural house! Through a massive amount of hours working together with many friends and helpers, we opened up the doors to the first floor with restaurant, bar and café in 2017. Since then we have also built hotel rooms.

    We've had a lot of fun: Music festivals, art festivals, and many other activities like yoga, hiking, climbing and surfing. More things are coming up! You do not want to miss the chance to join our community and work place.

    Lofoten is a very popular place for people with strong interests. With Lofoten Art and Filmmaking school in the nearest town and the beautiful landscape, many artists find their way to this pearl in the North. Active people can enjoy the best spots for climbing, hiking, surf beaches, kayaking and so on. We welcome people who want to work and live in beautiful surroundings - away from the everyday hustle in the big cities.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    All of us working on the project have become really good friends! Now we are ready to welcome some new workers to the community. We will provide local ingredients for dinner (most of the cod/bacalao in the world is caught in the ocean just outside the factory, with the main harbor being our closest neighbor), introduce you to what we think of as the most beautiful nature in the world, and let you be a part of the coolest cultural house on the best spot ;)

  • Ayuda


    For now we have tasks related to maintenance of the building and carpentry:

    – Sand and oil wooden floors
    – Build wooden benches in the sauna
    – General maintenance (fix doorhandles etc.)
    – Fix a drain
    – General clean-up on the property (remove building materials like wood and other leftovers)

    None of this work is technically very difficult, but it might be heavy, and you should like to work hard.

    The work load will be maximum 5 hours a day, 5 days a week.

    PS: A driver's license is required.

    You are welcome to live with us in the "White house". The house is situated ten meters from the factory. When you wake up in the morning you can put on your slippers and have a warm coffee or matcha latte in the café before work. There are double rooms, single rooms and two dorm rooms. The house is fully equipped: From kitchen utensils to bed sheets. There are two shared bathrooms (including a laundry machine and a bathtub), a shared living room and kitchen. Let's cook dinner together!

    We have a lot to do, and if you want to work extra hours in the finishing process we can compansate by borrowing out tent and other equipment if you want to enjoy the Lofoten nature when we are done and summer is upon Lofoten.
