Bjorg and Christian where beautiful host to have because I felt like part of the family from the get go. They where very respectful of work hours if being in the greenhouse or the family farm. I was in a little peace of paradise while there from kayaking, paddleboard, hiking, watching the orcas or just laying in the sun breathing in the fresh air. If you just need to slow your life down and take a breath I highly recommend this experience..you won't regret it! Tusen takk!

Fue una experiencia increíble.
Cristian y Bjorg son personas maravillosas , todos los días ella cocinaba comida deliciosa para nosotras.
Es un lugar mágico , donde puedes vivir momentos inolvidables , además ellos te proporcionan kayaks , bicis y muchas cosas más para que disfrutes de tu estancia allí y lo aproveches al máximo.
Las horas de trabajo son respetadas y las tareas son o limpiar los apartamentos o ayudar en su granja , son tareas fáciles y ellos te ayudan en absolutamente todo.
Yo me divertí mucho y aprendí inglés, es un voluntariado que recomiendo 100%.

Had an incredible moment in Herand with Christian and Bjorg and also Victoria who was volunteering at the same time as I did.

It was very peaceful and I really loved going on kayak adventures on the fjord. Stunning landscapes and shared moments and stories. I fell in love with Norway. And it felt very safe to be with them on this adventure. They are full of kindness and knowledge, and Bjorg was cooking with love for us everyday.

Thank you for everything. Kindly🙏

Loreena was with us for three weeks in April 2024. It has been a great pleasure to have her here. She has a unique understanding to see what needs to be done, and carries out what we have set her to do has been done to our greatest satisfaction. There has been a lot of heavy spring work and we were able to complete far more projects than we had expected. Thank you very much for your efforts. Hope to see you again soon.

I loved everything about my experience in Herand! Herand is a very special place with amazing fjord views and nature everywhere you look. The work is interesting and very fair for what you receive in exchange and you can learn a lot about gardening and local life. I loved spending my free time kayaking, hiking, and taking in the scenery. Bjørg and Christian are the kindest hosts and a pleasure to spend time with. They really go out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable in their home. I will miss my time in Herand and can recommend this experience to anyone!

Well, its has been one of the best experiences ive ever had in my life, Christian, Bjorg and them family are amazing people, so kind and helpfull whenever you need. The place its just amazing, landscapes really beautiful, the fiord its so chill with the kayak, mountains around are really cool too! There you live in like a bubble of happiness, not seems real life! I would recommend all the people to go there at least once in the lifetime, so nice to lose such and amazing experience. Work is not too hard, you learn lot of things about farming and local culture. 10/10. Just go there! Thank you ;)
