This was a life changing experience for me. Would 100% recommend. I spent my first month at the Hardanger Basecamp in Osa. It is the most calming and incredible place I have ever been, its hard to describe really. In Osa I worked mainly with Robert and Vera. Robert is the Owner of the whole the host business and he will be hard on you but he will teach you more than you can possibly imagine and you will make you a better person. Vera was awesome and fun to talk to and is very understanding of the fact that your from a different place and culture. I would write more but I've reached the limit!

The activities of the hotel, restaurant and the activity center are covered mostly by volunteers, that is why sometimes the environment is more tense and they expect you to work 'fast and effective' specially in Housekeeping. Angelo, the host of B-active, is really aware that you are a volunteer and is willing to explain, help and delegate activities :) What was promised is fulfilled, work, free time and meals, they lend you bicycles and kayaks to enjoy the surroundings. The views and connection that you can make with nature in this volunteering is amazing!

Mi experiencia en B-Active fue muy buena. Angelo es muy buen tío y ha hecho mi estancia mucho más divertida. También es un muy buen líder, te enseña como se hacen las cosas y te lo repite las veces que haga falta. Las habitaciones son grandes y con baño, perfectas. Evelyn se encargaba de las cenas, estaban buenas y con variedad. Lo mejor seguramente ha sido el paisaje. Trabajar al lado del fiordo es un lujo. Noruega me parece el país mas bonito en que he estado de naturaleza. Si quieres desconectar y tener una experiencia tranquila, este es tu lugar. Sin duda lo recomendaría a todos.

Robert, Angelo e toda a família são muito trabalhadores e profissionais, são honestos e honrados. Aprendi muito durante meu voluntariado por lá e indico para qualquer pessoa que queira trabalhar sério algumas horas do dia e ter tempo para explorar a cultura local. Se você gosta de lugar tranquilo e muita natureza, você irá ao lugar certo!
