About

Hei WWOOF'S.

Thanks on the interest in visiting here.

Tasks are varied and depending on time of the seasons will be helping us here with Firewood, Feeding/Watering/Manure removal of various animals, Bagging sawdust, Fishing Brown Trout with nets/rods then cooking some of the catch, Sustainable thinning of the woodlands including making brash piles/bonfires, Cleaning old fields of weed bushes rocks and fixing ditches, Making compost/potting plants, Spreading gravel and moving snow on paths, Fencing, Stone walling, High Pruning Trees, Starting a new organic vegetable patch............

We are a manual run place so have wheelbarrows to move materials some distance on reasonable level ground. Various hand tools are used here and we explain safe operation.

A good wide brim hat (with a removable midge netting is needed at times) as summertime temperatures can be in the +30's C. Snow can still be here in March so warm clothing and boot ice spikes are essential.

WWOOF'S will have accommodation with nice views of the mountains and lake and a relaxing inside/outside seating area. All meals hot/cold (including some Norwegian produced foods) are with us but not on Sundays.

We hope that people will keep the premises clean and help out with basic cleaning/washing up/recycling chores! Should someone wish to have some booze to consume at the weekend then we suggest purchase at duties free shopping as VERY expensive in Norge.

(Please MAKE SURE you have steel toe cap/mid-sole boots with good grip, warm gloves and full WATERPROOF clothing).

We are looking for honest, reliable, respectable, sociable, flexible, interesting, people with a good positive attitude and with a genuine wish to gain new rural experiences whilst in the special natural environment of the southern Norwegian mountains. (You might even see an Elg/Moose swimming across the lake with it's twin calves)

Ystesund is a full time Agricultural/Forestry business so we will be outside most of the time. (with drinks/toilet/lunch breaks sometimes cooking on a wood fire) Sundays and all evenings are free leisure time to explore/relax and welcome to take the dog on a long walk. There is much to see and do in the local area and a bicycle/canoe (with life jackets)/snow shoes/skis are available to use.

Free WIFI available but bad mobile/radio signals here so we have no TV.

Nearest sea ports to Europe are Kristiansand and Langesund and both Colorline/Fjordline ferries arrive from Hirtshals in Denmark.

Nearest airport is Sandefjord Torp and flights from Europe are around 1.30hrs with bus connections.

NON SMOKERS! (including electronic devices) Health/Safety/Insurance Reasons.

WWOOF'S will need to confirm the reasons to visit here, the processes wanting to learn, the contribution that can be given and have a good informative profile we can also read to avoid possible misunderstandings and to respond to messages ASAP so we can plan schedules. It's possible to host two WWOOF's at a time from around the world. Please note:- we are non religious and political neutral.

WWOOF NORGE insist all visitors must have current travel insurance (in case of sickness/accident) to cover the period at the Hosts place. Please use the word "FRIVILLIG" in the initial Hosting message so we know people have read and understood this long description. Tusen Takk. Paul og Andrea
