We wish to invite two friends or a couple who don't mind spending some time on your own.

If one of you has woodwork/building skills it's perfect.
One of you must take care of our icelandic horse (about 2 hrs/day)
and the other helper will take care of (feed, water, cleaning) the other animals (about 30 minutes everyday) and keep it clean and tidy on the farm.

There will also be assisting with farm projects, helping with cooking and do th cleaning eof the kitchen after lunch and dinner.

In the summerseason there will be gardening for both. Also helping with some B&B.

You will live in your own cottage but are welcome to the mainhouse when Leif comes home from work 16.00. You may help with cooking a lot of healthy food and do the cleaning of the kitchen.
Leftovers from the dinner you can take to the cottage for your lunch next day. For breakfast and evening meal you will get what you need in your cottage.

The Ænes valley, just behind the farm, is a unique valley partially in the Folgefonn National Park with the glacier Folgefonna,
high mountains, overwhelming views, waterfalls, rivers, beautiful woods and calm lakes.

Gygrastolen, 1340 m.a.s.l., the spectacular mountain just beyond our farm, is an amazing hike with a great view of the fjords.
It usually takes 7 hours upp and down.

If you plan to visit Trolls Tounge (april-october) be sure to have good equipment;
windproof jacket, good clothes and hiking shoes, sunscreen and sunglasses.

You can take the bus from Ænes to the parking at The Trolls Tounge with a change in Odda. You'll need the whole day for this hike.
We'll can drive you to the glacier and some other nice places. here is not often snow in winter.

The nature here is always fresh, wild and exiting - with a wonderland atmosphere.
The wild woods are just some meters from the farm and there are several paths you can enjoy all year.
The weather may changes often but in summer we also have long and sunny periods.
