Would you like to explore Innsbruck and surrounding areas for a week or two? We, a family of three, need one or two helpers to support us with chores in our home. We need four hours a day of helping. We are an easy going family living in a beautiful part of Tyrol, Austria with easy acces to Innsbruck. You can choose how you do the hours during the week to have days off to do some exploring. It is a 10 minute walk to the closest bus stop. From there you can get a bus to Hall in Tirol as well as Innsbruck. Hope to hear from you soon.

Dear Helpers!

We live on the very Western edge of the city of Graz 200m higher than the city with a view over almost the whole Graz Basin in an amazing natural surrounding. At our back there is the forest going further up the hill and in front of our house is a meadow of about 1 and a half hectare going down the hill surrounded by forest.

I and my husband who is a very versatile handcrafter, live here together with our 2 children (female 9, 10) in a small house. 30m away of our house, there is another big old stone house of 150qm which we are gradually restoring.

Our vision is to make our place fit in a simple, natural way for small workshops in the healing area. We need to make accessible the well preserved loft of the old stone house, to build a compost toilet and another wooden platform under our wonderful weeping willow. Our plan is to fulfill this vision by the next year (2019).

But right now, we have to establish a fence along the upper part of o... more inside

Our home is a centre for the practice of Yoga for the local community in one of the most beautiful parts of Switzerland. It offers easy access to many safe walking trails in the southern Swiss Alps, as well as being close to Chamonix and the northern Italian Alps via the Great St Bernard Pass. Hilary and I are retired teachers and, although still fit and active, can foresee a time when we will need help to manage our big garden. In part, that is one reason for hosting Helpx guests. But more importantly, we think Helpx can provide a means, through mutual help, of enabling mountain lovers like ourselves to share the joys of living in this beautiful, but expensive part of the world. To begin with, since we still travel quite a lot ourselves, we envisage taking guests only during the rapid-growing months of April, May and June. That could change as time goes by, however. For 3/4 hours` work a day (Monday to Friday) guests would be provided with full board and lodging, leaving weekends f... more inside

Begin Profile:
It's amazing how far you can travel, without leaving your home. (And hopefully the other way round: How at home can you be, while all the world from home?)

Hello There!
Bonjours, Salut!
Buenos dias!
Und Guten Tag!
(in writing I will stick to English, because the other two I can speak some, but barely write ...)


We're looking forward to your requests! Ideally we're looking for more long-term-oriented stays.


About us
We're living on an organic farm, trying to make it work. As both adults lack a farming background, there's lots of stuff that we can use help with. Also of course the more independently you can work, the better for everyone. But don't be scared: There's always some routine tasks too that are easily learned and would improve the running of the place.

Our farm is located in south-east Styria, at a hillside. We have some forest to walk in, and some Grassland to enjoy the view and cuddle the sheep.
Production wise, we have Grassland ... more inside

UPDATED INFO, since the number of kids and their camp schedules are now confirmed.

I am Naia, a Spanish girl living in Geneva, Switzerland for nearly 8 years. I adore this town and all its surroundings: swimming in the lake with the Mont-Blanc glacier view, the good summer weather, the lake promenade, Bains de Paquis and Perle du Lac, free cinema and concerts in the parks, great atmosphere in town, the forests and great hikings and medieval villages nearby.

After last year's great experience with helpx volunteers, this summer 2018 we are running again Summer Camps for kids ages 4-8 in the center of Geneva (Plainpalais) and we are looking for 1 to 4 volunteers per week, to stay as many weeks as they wish, from Sunday 24th June to Friday 28th July.

I will try to give you now as many details as you might need about the exchange, but please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any question.

We run a hostel in a small mountain village in the Swiss Alps. Myself (Merin) and my wife (Gemma) have been here in Gryon, Switzerland for more than 5 years, managing and growing our backpackers hostel. We first arrived for a six month climbing trip and couldn't leave.

Our hostel is in an authentic Swiss Chalet and has both private and dormitory rooms along with many common areas to accommodate our guests. Many people stay here because of our close proximity to all of the mountain activities. During the winter months there is skiing/snowboarding at a nearby resort and during the summer there is hiking, climbing and mountain biking. We love and participate in nearly all of the activities the Swiss Alps have to offer.

Our hostel is a pretty relaxed backpackers hostel. Our guests are usually a mix outdoor enthusiasts, individuals traveling Europe, small groups and families. It is a pretty chill place. We are not a party hostel and the mountains are more of a draw to our guests th... more inside
