The farm is truly a little paradise! It's a unique experience and something that I will remember for ever. Hege and her family are such generous, kind, open minded people. They welcome you and they couldn't make this out of comfort experience more smoothly and comfortable, they are always there if you need them. This brought me so much at so many levels and it couldn't have happened without them so thank you for everything. I could not recommend this enough. the farm is a little heaven

I had a lovely time on the farm! The surroundings were absolutely beautiful, the animals were adorable and a pleasure to work with, and the volunteer house is warm, cozy and has everything you could ever need. Hege is a kind, understanding and friendly host and her communication is great. The work hours were flexible, and the work was super fun. I would recommend a stay on the farm to anyone and hope to return one day. I can't wait to tell my gradkids about the time I took care of alpacas in Norway one day ;) Thanks for everything!

I've had a very good time and can totally recommend this farm. I felt safe and welcome all through. I can especially recommend this place to people that volunteer the first time.

I can only say thank you for this incredible experience! When you volunteer at the farm you get the chance to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. In addition to that you get to work with the cutest Alpacas and do tasks, that you feel comfortable with, and enjoy. The communication was also great at all times :) The hosts, and especially Hege, are making you feel very comfortable and welcomed, and in the end there was also something inspiring about my stay. What they have done with the place and the dreams, which they still have, simply make you want to dream as well!
