  • Descripción


    We are a family with three children (11y, 8y and 4y), living in a house in the countryside of Kvaløya, outside Tromsø.
    Last summer (2021), we got a flock of chickens and build a chicken coop. This year we are planning on getting two bee hives to harvest honey.

    We are looking for an excited volunteer to help us with house duties, looking after the kids, chickens and bees, and just being around in the daily life.

    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 have had great experience with several Workawayers for the last three summers (2020-2023), who helped us to paint the outside of our house and garage, building storage shelfs, building a chicken coop and performing other house maintenance. This was a fun and great experience for all of us.

    This year (2023) we are planning to start with beekeeping, so we are primarily looking for Workawayers with previous experience with beekeeping. This would be helpful for us in order to learn the craft of honeybees. Also, we would need help with looking after the chickens in periods when we are away. And as always with a big house, there are always general house maintenance duties, such as painting, gardening, digging, and construction. We will provide all the necessary tools and equipment required for this. The Workawayer need to bring own working clothes for outside use.

    Also, we would highly appreciate if the Workawayer has interest in playing with the kids, as well as cooking, and encourage participation in dinner preparations.

    The Workawayer will have an own bedroom and an own bathroom in the main house. 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.
