We are now closed for the winter and not receiveing helpers. A hikers paradise and perfect biking conditions close to the most famous destinations in the Norwegian mountains, a small hostel/ gité situated in the middle of a rich historical area. Originally a cabin at a summer mountain pasture that started to cater for tourists and mountain hikers in the 1860's, Today it is a modern hostel that has kept it's roots in simple accommodation, good food, and focus on traditional hospitality. We're now making efforts to reconnect even more to our roots and local specialties by increasing the use of local, organic food. We are also increasing themed stays related to the area and the disappearing skills and knowledge of the high mountains. These spanning from cultural hikes to nearby archaeological sites, fishing on the lake, summer pasture courses, plant dying, and foraging, to mention some. We have close cooperation with activity providers in the area, and are hosting horses and their riders every week.

Despite being very proud of our own little language, most Norwegians do speak English, and at Haugseter we also speak a little French and German that we would like to improve. There will be plenty of time to discover the area, or to participate in some of the activities we are providing for our guests. Help needed for breakfast and lunch serving and preparations, easy maintenance and general hospitality. 3 -5 hours 5 days a week, mainly mornings.Please note that we do not have the capacity to help with visas at this point.
