We are an adventure travel company with a base in northern Norway, 100 km north of the Arctic Circle. We organize travels, expeditions, and all kinds of courses for both travellers as companies. Our main goal is to create sustainable and responsible tourism for nature and outdoor-minded people, educate them, and providing fun and great adventures. Our company is quite ambitious and there is a lot of work to be done to reach our goals.

Helpers can learn a lot about working in responsible and sustainable tourism. You can help with different projects like guiding and assisting with outdoor activities, maintenance (of equipment, cars and boats), constructing (wood-work), working with guests, photo and video projects (shooting and editing), drone flying, or related disciplines like IT (web design and SEO), marketing, google/Facebook/Instagram advertisements, branding and social media.

We are a couple of French people settled in Swedish Lapland. Our village counts less than 30 inhabitants and is reached by a gravel road. The Nearest supermarket is 30km away and is quiet small.

We have build a wilderness camp composed of 4 cabins of 20m2, 1 common house, 2 saunas and 2 dry toilets. Everything in timber.
No running water or electricity (but a small generator and a warm shower in the sauna)

We welcome guests all winter for all-inclusive holidays with food, accommodation, transfers and activities. Mainly french guests but it can also be other nationalities.

Activities that we do ourselves: snowshoes, ice-fishing, forest ski.

We would like to welcome a volunteer for the whole winter, from december (15th) to the end of march (or a little bit before, depending on the bookings).
We are only two running the lodge and a little bit of help in the easiest duties would be very welcome.:)

Welcome to this beautiful shore of a rural island on Norway`s West Coast!

One hour's bus ride from Bergen city.

Visitors from most countries must be in quarantine the first 10 days, but that time will be close to what is normal here. If we agree that the risk for me is sufficiently low, I may accept. Link to the Norwegian rules for quarantine: https://www.fhi.no/en/op/novel-coronavirus-facts-advice/facts-and-general-advice/travel-advice-COVID19/

This place is not mainly about work. It is more about enjoying the nature, learning, teaching, moments of fellowship ... Our work shouldn't be in contradiction to this, and mostly enjoyable!
20 hours a week is fine.

You can find many ways to help. - Including: daily cleaning etc; gardening; painting; other maintenance; construction; picking garbage from the sea shore... You can also do good to your host by sharing your opinions; discuss priorities; teach some yoga; give massage; help me help neighbours and friends ... You na... more inside

We run an internship program for people interested in working with huskies in a semi-professional capacity. In other words, we don`t just take people as volunteers and expect them to poop. Rather, we have a systematic training system in place which is an extension of the system in place for paying clients who want to participate in the husky lifestyle for short periods of time.

Interns learn about and participate in the daily and weekly tasks that need to be completed on the farm. The first week is a bit of a baptism of fire guided by a daily mentor in which there is complete immersion into every aspect of life here.

The degree to which people can participate in the range of roles available on the farm depends on the length of their stay, their expertise coming in, and the level of interest in the various roles.

Duties change with the seasons from one-on-one dog training and construction / maintenance work in the summer, to dog-conditioning and safari preparation work in... more inside

Greetings! We are a creative couple in our 30's (Janne and Ruben) living in a fjord at the norwegian west coast, where we have wonderful nature close at hand. We love to make everything around us beautiful and like a fairytale, and we try to live as sustainable as possible, we love the principles of permaculture. We bought this house and 1 acre garden 5 years ago, our property is located by the fjord with a couple of small beaches close by, as well as the forest and the mountains basically at our doorstep. We have various fruit trees, berry bushes and vegetable patches. We live here with our 2 cats and 4 ducks. We run a small mushroom farm (allthough please note, we don't really have a farm, it is more like a little homestead). We have our own cozy campfire place. And a row boat if you like the sea or fishing.

Important update: Our baby was born in June 2019, you would have to be ok with staying in a home where there is a baby :) (If you're comfortable with babies we're also look... more inside

We are a young family consisting out of myself (Arno, 30 years old, Dutch), my girlfriend (Amelia, 26 years old, Swedish) and our daughter Vivianne (2 years old).
We moved to the rural part of Sweden to start a self-sufficient homestead and a small business in tourism. For the past three years we have been growing food, taking care of our animals and working on renovating a 19th century house.

There are beautiful nature reserves in the area, a small town with shops/restaurants 10km away and we live close to a train station if you would like to visit the city's in the area.

For the coming year we have some projects ready to get done. Here are some examples:

This farm is  located  by a beautiful lake and nature reserve bird sanctuary  (Nordre Øyeren naturreservat). It is half hour drive from Oslo. 

History

We have been running this farm since 1993.  70ha farm includes 55 ha forest and 15 ha rented cultivated land. Most of our land forest and is not directly connected to our small scale production. From the beginning we had bulls, goats, cows, horses, and 100 sheep. Farm was quite abandoned before we inherited. A lot of renovations were done and still we work on keeping it in proper order.

Farm family

Both of us working full time outside. Husband as a psychologist and wife  works in the farm and the school. Our 3 daughters  are 13 and 14 years old.  Wife has more opportunity to be in the farm gardening, cleaning, food processing with the  wwofers.

Mother and father are interested in yoga and meditation even though we are quite new to meditation. By allowing to see our imperfections we decided to share our experience in y... more inside

I recently moved from Copenhagen to a small house in the south of Fyn.

Inside, most of the need to jobs are done. But outside there is still a lot to do

- Establish no dig beds
- Make compost
- Build Chicken coop
- Replace ornamental plants with edible plants
- Propagate plants
- Collect seaweed on the beach for the garden
- Replace old pavement


In the kitchen:
Prepare vegetarian meals
Bake bread
Make jams, chutneys, ketchups and relishes.
Gather wild berries and nuts in surrounding nature


Now two hours away from Copenhagen. But I can pick you up at the nearest train station (Stenstrup).

I offer simple meals and accommodation for 4-5 hours work/day including taking part in everday cores like help cooking, cleaning etc. I have been vegetarian for almost 20 years, but have recently started to eat some meat, but the meals will still predominantly be vegetarian -like 99,9 %.

Skills I can share: Beekeeping, composting, wormfarming, brea... more inside

We are a British family living in Southern Sweden.
Helen and Martin met through Scouting and the open-hearted, generous, communal way of life close to nature is a fairly good starting point for our ethos. Good humoured practicality, tolerance and flexibility in as low demand a lifestyle as possible. Both of our boys have neuro-psychiactic differences/challenges and this family has weathered more than a few storms in the last decade.

We have a property with much potential for hosting van-lifers, travellers, campers and so on. We are interested in education and personal development, managing adversity whilst enjoying life and supporting others, and more specifically outdoor activities, handcrafts and we are Viking re-enactors.

We used to host Couchsurfers occasionally and we had a few contacts return to work on the property, informally, to improve our ability to host guests. More recently we have realised that there are travellers out there who enjoy helping a host, building,... more inside
