The Experience

Come experience life on the Norwegian countryside. We live on a farm surrounded by forest, fields and a lake. We have many projects going on and will welcome volunteers this spring. It would be especially helpful if you have experience in gardering, painting, or DIY projects. The only animal on the farm is our cat.

Such a valuable experience at the farm! Great place to connect with nature and enjoy some peace and quiet. The house is so lovely! Olaug and Bjorn are very warm, welcoming, generous and caring. Learnt a lot about Norwegian culture, food and history during the joint meals and outings. The work is very fair and they really want to make sure you are enjoying your time and experience there. Highly recommend!

The experience i had with Olaug and Bjorg's house was so beautiful!!! They are so lovely people, so kind and warm and made us feel like family. We were a team of 5 volunteers from different countries and we had so much fun working and living together. The sorroundings of the house are beautiful, you can connect with the nature so easily as they live in the forrest and there are so beautifuls landscapes, lakes, etc. I would recommend this experience to everyone who wants to have a volunteering experience in Norway. Hope to see them again very soon, thanks for everything!!!
