  • Description


    Unfortunately, the current corona situation means that at the moment we can only host guest who are already in denmark and have stayed in denmark for at least two months and have a recent negative corona test.

    Unfortunately, we cannot host vegans at the moment, as vegan diet is hard to fit together with our childrens taste and diet. But it is fine if your vegetarian, as we want to eat and live more climate friendly.

    We are only searching for volunteers who has experience in handling and walking big and strong dogs, as our dog is a German shepherd. She is sweet, but being a teenager, she is also very energetic and it takes some strength to walk her.

    Hello everyone.

    We are a Danish family consisting of 5 members, 3 children at the age of 7, 10 and 16. The father Mikael works as a nurse and the mother Benedikte as an anthropologist. We moved to the countryside three years ago from Copenhagen and enjoy the rural life. We have a big house so there is plenty of space for you to stay and enjoy some time in Denmark. We like to meet people from other countries and to get new friends.

    We need help with the daily chores inside the house (cleaning) as well as outside gardening, sometimes a bit of renovation and always help with taking care of the animals (ducks, chicken and rabbits) and particular with walking and playing with our lovely German shepherd – Miska. Also we have three wonderful cats.
    During the weekdays we are usually at work or in school between 8-16 a clock. Sometimes Benedikte will work from home. You will usually do your chores while we are at work and we will all eat dinner together in the evening, which is a good time to talk and exchange stories. Sometimes we will speak English during dinner and sometimes we will switch to Danish as the youngest children only speak a little bit English. As we will often be a way during the daytime, you need also to enjoy spending time on your own. If you prefer company all the time our place may not be the best solution. We are very social, but also busy with our work and the children.
    If you are interested in shamanic experiences, you might also get it here. Occasionally, our place is a gathering place for various kinds of shamanic practices and rituals related to the shamanic practices of the indigenous people of Mongolia, Siberia and North America. Also we can share a lot of stories from our travels: Benedikte lived in Mongolia for many years and Mikael lived in Greenland for many years.
    We live 1 hour away from Copenhagen, so when you stay at our place you both have the rural experience and it is easy to get to the Capital Copenhagen by train.

    Please make sure to read the following:

    We usually do not host guests less than three weeks, because it takes time to get to know each other and as we see time as crucial to ensure that you and we get the best from the exchange.

    We expect that you in exchange for food and accommodation work 5 hours per day five days a week. Working means actual work, such as walking the dog, cleaning the house, gardening. We expect that you besides working also participate and contribute to everyday chores in our family, such as help with preparing meals and cleaning up after the meals and sometimes play with the children. We do not consider this as part of the working hours, but crucial for you and us getting involved in each other's life and making it a real cultural exchange.

    We are rather busy during weekdays, so getting involved in the family and getting to know each other, it is important that you are open to participate in cooking etc, which is a good time for conversations.

    We are flexible in how to organize the working hours and your free time.
