Free helper spots available from june! :-)

Come, stay and assist our young and motivated team at a lodge situated in the heart of Øksendal valley. The lodge is a historic and cosy hideaway surrounded by mountains and close to the fjords, rich on possibilities for outdoor activities all year round, such as ski-touring, nordic skiing, hiking, cycling, climbing, bouldering, trail-running and many more.

The lodge consists of three buildings: The old house built in 1899 is the jewel in the crown, the modern building was built in 1982 and has a dining hall with panoramic views across the Øksendal mountains, and the little exotically named Madagascar cottage.

We offer accommodation, breakfast and dinner for our house guests as well as for groups or companies and we're hosting birthdays, weddings, anniversaries etc.

We are happy to welcome people from all over the world as members of our small team. Helpers will get accommodation in a private room and all the basic food (breakfast, lunch and dinner). We follow a vegetarian diet and we mostly cook and eat all together family style. Christian is the manager and also the chef here and sometimes spoils us ;). We invite our helpers to explore the surroundings either with us or on their own, to get to know the incredible beauty of this part of Norway. We speak English, Norwegian, German, Dutch and enjoy the exchange with people from different nationalities very much, 'cause there is always something to learn, right?

And there is plenty to do at the lodge. We are happy about any help (skilled or non-skilled) in several fields like housekeeping, serving and prepping in the kitchen or general maintenance in and around the lodge, gardening, making fire wood, lots of cleaning as well as exploring the region and taking pictures and videos for our social media profiles.

We will start the skiing season mid January. Minimum stay is 2 weeks and we are always happy about people willing to stay a bit longer. Helpers hours will be 5h a day, 5/6 days a week.

Do you like what's offered? Write an e-mail with some facts about you and the time frame you want to help us, we are happy to get to know you!

Chris & Team & Emma the dog :-)
