  • Descripción


    Hi there! Thanks for being interested in our project!

    -----------------please note-----------------

    We currently can only host people located in 'green' countries or if you are fully vaccinated. We want to keep it simple and can't run into too much uncertainty.
    We have the family together for the autumn and haven't start looking into winter yet. Sorry, some of you will have to wait a bit for an answer. Busy times right now. We probably go through all the messages during October though and looking forward to read allyour nice messages.
    If you are interested in coming spring or later 2022, please contact us again during February.

    -----------------stay safe---------------------

    ...and now to our story :)
    We are two friends with the dream of creating a place where outdoor-minded travelers can come together and experience island life above the Artic Circle in northern Norway. We bought an old elderly home from the 50's beginning of 2019 and have the ambition to create Norway's coolest Hostel and for that, we need your help!

    Guri is 30 years old from the Westcoast in Norway and Arne 36, half German/Finnish. We both travelled a lot around the world, and love creating new connections. We spend most of our times outdoors, if that is surfing, climbing, hiking, name it. The hostel is our dream project and all our hard earned money is going into this.

    If you are as well into climbing, surfing, skiing or any other outdoor adventure, you will fit right into our little family here.

    To make our life a little bit easier, please write us briefly about yourself:
    - How long would you want to join us? We enjoy having people around for longer, so they become a local and bond with the island (1-2 months), however shorter stays for specific renovation projects are possible as well.
    - What draws you to our project and what would you be excited to help us with?
    - What is it that really makes you happy? (so we get to know you a bit)
    - Have you worked as volunteer before? What are your expectations?

    If you love life, the outdoors, are enthusiastic about hostel life and getting your hands dirty, please write us. We look for positive people that are energetic, smiling and excited to whatever comes our ways.

    We are looking forward hearing from you and welcome you to the islands.
    Stay safe out there and spread some positive vibes :)

    P.S.: we love spontaneous visits and if you are close by and ready to help, chances are high that we can use a hand or two for a shorter period of time :)

    If you haven’t been in Lofoten yet, it’s this magical place above the arctic circle, in Northern Norway. The nature here is amazing and perfect for hiking, surfing, skiing, climbing, kayaking and much more. Further, the people are friendly and easy to get along with.
    The longer you stay, the more of a local islander you become. It's not uncommon that people get stuck and never leave the islands. :) We have a handful of former volunteers that now made Lofoten their homes and live permanently on the islands. We will definitely help you with our contacts if you plan to move up and want to help us out at the beginning.

    The fun you have will depend on how you integrate to island life. The more open you are to plan your days yourself and make new friends, the more fun you will have :) There are some amazing people around us but it's up to you get out there and join our cool community of islanders :)

    The hostel is located in the middle of Lofoten, just next to E10, the only street that goes through whole Lofoten. There are several buses passing every day. So, within the same day, you can get so many activities in and we of course want you to get the most out of this cool experience and besides the help at our place, there will be heaps of time for you to adventure around the islands.

    Depending on the season, there might be a car for you to borrow. We as well have kayaks and bikes you could use.

    There will be a variety of tasks at our large house and property we would love your help with.

    As it's a big house with many people from all around the world coming and going, we really need help with making the place cosy and clean :) If you are a person that has a smile on when doing housekeeping and enjoys the feeling to make a place ready for others to enjoy it, let us know :)

    If you are great in making breakfast and love food in general, that's amazing as well!

    Our garden needs constant maintenance and if you have experience with gardening or building small things outside, that be super cool. It's an old house and things needs to be fixed all the time :) So if you are handy and maybe have some carpentry skills, that would be super helpful.

    If you have some videography skills, that be a cool project to get into as well.

    We offer accommodation and food while you stay with us.

    When the Hostel is up and running and the corona crisis coming to an end, we can as well offer jobs with payments. Please indicate if you want to apply for a regular position.

  • Alojamiento


    You will get your own dorm room. At busy times you need to share a room with one more person if the house gets full for a while.

    The food we cook is vegetarian or pescatarian.
    At this stage you will cook your own food together with the others. We will make sure that the food pantry is always full ;)

    If you want to work on a paid position, the accommodation and food situation needs to be discussed new as it's reserved for volunteers.
