We are a family with three children, living in a house in the countryside of Kvaløya, outside Tromsø. In the summertime, there are plenty of outdoor opportunities for hiking, running, mountain biking and fishing in the close vicinity of our house. We have long light days, with midnight sun from mid May to mid July. In the winter, there are endless possibilities for ski-mountaineering and cross-country skiing. Enjoy the beautiful northern lights from just outside the house. You can also visit any of the local dog farms and try dog-sledging.

We will provide an insight into a native Norwegian family-house, including language, culture, food and nature.
Last summer (2020) we got help from 4 Workawayers to paint the outside of our house and garage. This was a fun and great experience for all of us. This year (2021) we need help with finishing some other house maintenance duties, such as painting some wooden and concrete floors, some gardening, digging, some smaller construction tasks, dinner cooking and babysitting. We will provide all the necessary tools and equipment required for this. The Workawayer need to bring own working clothes for outside use.
We highly appreciate if the Workawayer has interest in cooking, and encourage participation in dinner preparations.
The Workawayer will have an own bedroom and an own bathroom in the main house. The shower is shared with the rest of the family. We have no TV, but WiFi and a laptop computer can be provided, if needed. The Workawayer has access to an own small kitchen, if needed, or preferably share the main kitchen with the rest of the family.
There are plenty of outdoor activities and hikes in the area that the Workawayer can enjoy during their time-off. We can provide a bike for easy getting-around, and busses go several times daily to Tromsø city centre.
We also have a drum-kit and an electric piano in the house, which can be used in the time-off.
