  • Description


    No more space left this year, you can apply for season 2023. Thanks to everyone who wanted to spend a time on our place 👍

    Robo and Dada welcome you to this site! Inspirational summer light in a beautiful forest with picturesque lakes and nature sounds expressing what we all look for - wellbeing and health. Tempted to come and enjoy yourself with us?

    Our property is only 10 km from the Norwegian border, next to lake Tvällen.
    Since we acquired this place in 2014, we try to change it into a nice place to stay, also thanks to volunteers. Some became long stayers and some even sent siblings or friends, but we learned a lot from each one, welcoming new ideas & inspiring each other.

    We are looking for volunteers who will help with general maintenance, painting, firewood preparation, reconstruction/renovation, gardening, and simple carpentry.

    Sustainable ways of life, such as baking our own sourdough bread, breeding chickens, semi-permaculture gardening and recycling the waste, is the way we decided to go, and we gladly share our experience.

    We speak English and Slovak; Robo also speaks some Swedish and Russian. We enjoy practising languages during calm evenings, and we are enthusiasts in cooking, mainly continental style, but we also try the exotic ones. Robo is a good fisherman, and I like gardening.

    In our house also live Chilli - chihuahua, plus 3 cats.

    There is not really easy access to public transport. We will pick you up at the train or bus station in Arvika or Charlottenberg (Sweden) if you arrive by plane in Oslo (Norway). Trains connect all critical travel hubs in Sweden, look at the website (sj.se), and find destination Arvika or Charlottenberg.

    Living outside of buzzy cities isn’t for everyone. It is a remote forest here, so be prepared for real Swedish wildlife :) If you want to spend a few weeks hiking, wildlife watching, biking, fishing, kayaking, or just pondering nature, please write. It will make you a happy workawayer. And if you are 2, bring your friend. We prefer couples for 2-4 weeks, age more than 21.

    We look forward to meeting you!
    Dada & Robo

    Directly in the area are kilometres of marked hiking trails and interpretive walks. You can borrow bicycles or if you want to try fishing, right next to the summer houses are lakes with pikes, perches and other white fish. We also have canoes and there is a small pier if you decide to swim.

  • Aide


    We are looking for help with reconstructions projects with the cottages in the camp, cleaning cottages, painting, fire wood processing, renovation, cutting down bushes and grass.

    The ideal workawayer for us is open, friendly and practical person, age at least 21 years. We prefer if you have skills in similar work already. Minimum stay is 14 days. Due to different type of work we prefer workaywers as couple.

    Please note that we are not a company or institution with insurance for volunteers. Although we will of course make every precaution to prevent accidents, we strongly recommend you buy a travel insurance that covers also manual work.

    You will sleep in the guesthouse - there are 2 bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. Bedlinen and towels are provided. We eat lunch and many times also dinner together. We would appreciate help with preparing the food, washing up and final cleaning in the kitchen.

    We have unlimited wi-fi. Mobile network to make calls is sufficient, but you have to find a right place :-)

    In summer nights there might be mosquitos, we recommend to use repellents (available in our house).

    Only a 5 minute walk from the Camp is the lake Tvällen, which has approximately 100 acres. In the surrounding area (up to about 20 kilometres) there are many more lakes, some smaller, but some large with almost a thousand acres.
    There is no size limit set for fish; you can fish all year long and the amount of fish you catch is not limited (besides the trout area). Welcome are especially the catch & release fans, those who prefer the beautiful experience rather than a freezer full of fish. We own two motor boats on nearby lakes and 2-3 more on the bigger lakes.


    The best way how to explore beautiful nature of Sweden and local cultural monuments is to take a trip with bikes or on foot. An interesting experience is to take the “Path of seven farms” (7 torpsleden), which goes from Lekvattnet and follows the original trail of Finnish settlers.


    Settlement Ritamäki is one of the farms that is best preserved. They will offer you a simple refreshment in the summer – coffee and awesome, freshly baked waffles. There are many other settlements nearby as well, for example Kvarntorp or Purala.


    There are many great places around this area suitable for a boat or canoe, as a day trip or a trip lasting several days. On lakes Tvällen and Kymmen or nearby rivers there are many possibilities to spend lovely time. There is access on our lake Tvällen for swimming.
