We are a family of four and have small farm at the coast of the Baltic sea close to Oskarshamn. The farmhouse is more than a hundred years old and is located just a few meters away from a lake, which we can use exclusively for fishing, swimming and anything else.

A good work-life-balance is very important for us, and this is also what we have in mind for our helpers. It's not only working here, we also want to show our helpers the laid back Swedish lifestyle here at the Eastern coast. Both sides should feel that they did benefit from your stay at our place.

Hein: I was born in the north of Germany, and my profession as a carpenter has a very important role in the realization of our dream life. I’ve always felt at home out in nature, fishing, sailing or mushroom picking,. I like to work in the garden and cultivate home-grown fruits and vegetables.

Astrid: I love living in the nature and the freedom here in Sweden. By profession I’m a surgery nurse, nature and the garden ar... more inside

We are originally a family of 6, I, Carina, my four daughters and my husband, Pär. Since last summer all girls, but Nanna, 18, have, more or less, left home for further studies. My beloved Pär died this February, after a long time with sickness.

We started to welcome HelpXers to our Uddevalla home five years ago and since then we have met so many interesting, wonderful, helpful, caring and skilled people - men and women, boys and girls, who in different ways have helped us with various practical matters, but also contributed to increase our understanding of the world and letting us become their friends - in many cases, I believe, for life!

I have promised Pär to keep and care for his old home in Grundsund and it is my hope to be able to. We have, therefore, two properties to welcome you to!

We offer accomodation ( your own room ) in one of our two homes, food and friendship in exchange for some practical help. Both indoor and outdoor help is needed and you should be prepar... 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 beginner 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 helpin... more inside

Hi,

Dream place for the right person ! There is 12 happy furry monsters (sled dogs) and a crazy French lady needing some help all year round ! If you do not mind the cold (outside and inside a house !), if you need some adventure but on the other hand don t mind to be alone for some long winters hours, this might be the place you were looking for ! You don t need to have been working with dogs before but you need to feel naturally attracted to cuddle them for hours... and be use to go camping by any type of weather. I am very relax at home, but super strict when its concern my dogs (I just love them too much), so you do need to be a down to earth person that I can trust.

Various task where I need help with: Taking care of the dogs when I m at work, help with training (long distance sled dog racing), picking up berries in the forrest, help fixing my old swedish "house"...

Interested... just write me :-)

Small Icelandic horse farm in the North of Sweden, offering riding tours to visitors from Sweden and from all over the world.

As I am spending a lot of time on horseback, training or guiding, I need help at the farm. To feed the animals that stay at the farm and take care of the transport of food and luggage when I am on a long tour for example.
Other tasks can be building fences, fixing buildings, cleaning the guests' rooms...

I live in a small village of 80 inhabitants, between the forest and the river. So if you like nature, you should be happy here!

Help is needed from the begining of June to the end of August.
You need to be independant, but do not necessarily need to know horses. Driving license is a must.
English at least. Even better if you speak French!
In exchange you get food, accommodation and free horse riding lessons/tours.

Welcome to my little paradise!

In July less jobs to do than in June. Mostly we need help with weeding and painting and other small things on a small farm like ours.

Organic Status: since 1975 ecological (organicbiological).

Very welcome to us. This is a part of the North. In summer no darkness no nights just a very friendly mild sun shining all the time. Just enjoy what nature can give. In coldest winter not so much sun only ghostlight from millions of stars and the moon and northernlights the aurora which moves over the sky in curtains of colors.

When we have helpers here we see it as an advantage to have two volunteers during the same period. We usually can not accommodate more than two helpers at the same time. But sometimes there are three and sometimes only one.

We are trying to live and have our farming as it is sustainable and rugged. It is ecological (organic) and we try to treat animals and nature in an ethical dignity.

We are a couple and our children are grown up and moved to ... more inside

We are Peter (Swedish), Solveig (German) and our kids Magali (8 years) and Dimitri (3 years). It is our privilege to live in a nice Swedish woodhouse built together with an old typical Swedish hut. A beautiful forest is protecting our house from North, to the West there is the view on a long-stretched lake. There are cats and chicken, too. We are trying to do as many things as possible ourselves, getting as independent as possible from the system. We are vegetarians and avoid dairy products as much as possible. There is WiFi and we are non-smokers.
We are able to speak to you in Swedish, German, English and a little bit French.
There is private space in the old part of the house with sleeping opportunities both on the ground floor and under the roof. Bathroom and toilet (compost) have to be shared with the host family.
