  • Description


    Hi there! Thanks for being interested in our project!

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

    We currently can only host people if you are fully vaccinated. We want to keep it simple with the travel restrictions and can't run into too much uncertainty.

    We are almost done with selecting the winter crew, but if you are interested in May and onwards, please contact us again during February. We are not looking at autumn requests until May.

    Short, generic messages are not our favorite. We get so many messages that we would love to get a good first impression quite fast, before contacting you. Please write in english.

    Please read the whole text we wrote, before contacting us, to avoid misunderstandings. :)

    -----------------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 very briefly about yourself:
    - How long would you want to join us? We enjoy having people around for 1-2m, so they become a local and bond with the island
    - 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 in Lofoten and ready to help, chances are high that we can use a hand or two for a shorter period of time. Please write in your header: I'M IN LOFOTEN, so you stand out right away :)

    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 quite a few of our 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 stay after your stay.

    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, but that will be dependant on if the car is in use or not. We as well have kayaks, snowshoes, a sauna and bikes you can use.

  • Aide


    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 can offer payment, accommodation and food while you stay with us.
