STF Hagaby/Lantgården

Its a countryside hostel near the sea, situated on the island Öland in the Baltic sea. Nature is fantastic, nice sand-beaches, sunny weather. With lots of activities like yoga retreats, painting courses.

We have a great time together. Volunteers has their own house with a dormitory and own kitchen. They have their own bicycle to use when they are here. In the free time there is many nice places to visit. Beaches are near and Öland has most sunshine in Sweden. Its called Swedish Hawaii.

Its one of the most peaceful and beautiful places I have ever seen nature wise! Stephan, his wife and the staff are lovely and you can connect with the Swedish culture well! I only advise volunteers coming in the beginning of the season that there might be not a lot of other volunteers or guests, so you can adjust your expectations and enjoy more alone time with the nature :)

I can't be happier with this experience
This is my first time in WorldPackers and since the first day I felt integrated, comfortable and like I were at home
The work is very well organized and you have time to relax, explore the island, go to the beach... and all is near the hostel!

I've learned about culture, I've had fun and I've had time for myself, couldn’t be better!

Stefan and Susan are magnificent people, I’ll never forget this experience and I’m sure I’ll be back (I have to try surströmming yet)
