This was my first experience on worldpackers and I couldn't have wished for anything more. Roswitha and Fridus (the hosts) immediately make you feel at home. The tasks and work I had to do was really fair and not so hard at all. With regard to the free days they were also really flexible. I got the chance to visit Stockholm for a weekend and to visit Västerås. This host is always concerned about how the volunteers experience their stay and try to make it the best experience for them.
The surroundings of the place are breathtaking and their three lovely dogs really add something to the place!

Amazing experience!
I was there when the restaurant was closed and we worked at many interesting things. We rebuild a wood floor, sewed napkins for the restaurant, I have been a photograher for their online shop.
Every day there was always something new to learn,working was easy and enjoyable.
In the evenings we often cooked together, turning on the music and having fun.I loved the family environment that had been created, Fridus and Roswitha are amazing people and you can learn so much from them,in every field. The only thing I'd say is : be careful, you're going to miss them very much!!😊❤

Amazing experience in Bergsmansgard had a great end of the year with Rowistha and Fridus friends and family.Work time was enjoyable,I was there when the restaurant was open, nothing difficult at all, at the end of everyday we all sit together,have dinner and play board games.The landscape in soderbarke are breath taking,they have 3 lovely dogs, which I love taking for a walk.
Fridus and Rowistha always happy to help you out if you want to explore around and love how they make you feel like home ❤️
Will be a pleasure to volunteer again at Bergsmansgard if I have the chance 😁

I am so lucky to have this opportunity, i had the best days of my life here. This swedish village has beautiful lakes nearby, they have 3 lovely dogs. And every night Fridus, Roswitha, and volunteers will eat and play together as a family.
Hosts are very popular in volunteering, they had more than 150 volunteers already but new to worldpackers.
I went during Christmas, and I had to help in kitchen for Restaurant, it was so much fun and learning, working hours may differ but I am so sure that the landscapes, hosts, facility, foods are really worth it.
They gave me souvenir, memories & love

Being in Bergmansgard has been really amazing. I've enjoyed the snowed winter as I had never done, the landscapes and lakes over the place are simply fantastic. Roswitha and Fridus are the best host possible, you are like part of the family since the first day. The work is not very difficult and with Roswitha everything is easier. I'm thinking about coming back when I can. Amazing experience
