  • Descripción


    Häggsjövik is a small village in the northern part of Sweden, far off from the cities hustle and bustle. Great forests, beautiful lakes for fishing and many mountains for hiking are just around the corner. The wildlife in the area is amazing and easy accessible. You can pick blueberries, cloudberries and lingonberries in the woods and also go for a daytrip to Norway since we´re just 30 km from the border.
    In the middle of Häggsjövik you will find or farm which was the third homestead to be built when the village was founded in the late 1700:s. Our family has lived there for generations and last year me and my sister took over the place from our parents who have moved into town for an easier living in their older days.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    This is swedish countryside living - in the wilderness. You will get a close up of swedish wildlife and nature learning to live with the fact that the nearest grocerystore is 10 km away and the nearest city 110 km away. You will enjoy bbq over open fire, maybe catch a glimpse of bear, moose and reindeer, and you will definitely find peace and quiet for the soul. This is the swedish way of enjoying nature!

    There are three houses on the farm. The oldest house was built in the late 1700:s. The second house for living was built in the 1930:s. There is also a big barn built I think in the 1800:s.
    All three houses are in need of external painting, with the traditional "earth paint" (slamfärg/falu rödfärg) that is used on many old buildings in Sweden. This does not require a skilled painter, it is quite easy to handle, but when it comes to the windows a little experience might come handy. Scraping off the old paint, maybe replacing old window putty with new (without damage to the old handblown glass), oiling the wood and painting might be tricky the first time, but its a beautiful way to preserve these old and beautiful windows.
    We are also in need of woodworking skills on the houses, since some of the old paneling needs to be replaced before painting.
    The houses are surrounded by a garden that also would need a hand or two, mowing the lawns, weeding etc.

    To enjoy a stay in Häggsjövik you would have to love the being-close-to-nature-experience. We are far off from shopping and city-life. You can go by bus to the nearest city, Östersund, but the schedule is not very good (if you take a daytrip you will have approximately 4 hrs to go in the city). We dont have previous experience with volunteers, but our neighbour working with sleddogs have had many volunteers that have enjoyed the area.
