Thank you for signing up for volunteering in Flørli this summer! The groups are now full and you can have a look at who is coming here. I hope we have gotten some nice groups together and look forward to having you here!
Due to ferry schedules, group arrivals and departures are planned on friday. The group dates are therefore:
Group 1, Friday 6th june – Friday 13th june
Group 2, Friday 13th june – Friday 20th june
Group 3, Friday 20st june – Friday 27th june
Group 4, Friday 8th august – Friday 15th august
Group 5, Friday 15th august – Friday 22nd august
Cancelling your stay is of course no problem, but please do so at least two weeks before arrival.
Costs of getting here
As there seems to be some confusion about it: your travel to and from Flørli you have to pay yourselves. From most northern European destinations, a flight will cost you about 300 euro. The Fjord Line ferry is the cheapest alternative if you are embarking in Hirtshals (DK). You’ll wake up in Stavanger, simple as that! From the UK, flying is probably easiest, but you can also check DFDS Seaways to Esbjerg (DK).
Getting from Stavanger to Flørli is about 30 euro. You have to plan this transfer well so you don’t get stuck on the way and have to spend the night in Stavanger. There are two ferries on the Lysefjord that can take you to Flørli. The fast Combi Boat Kolumbus and the Fjord1 Tourist Carferry with guided sightseeing on board. Only the Combi Boat has a departure from Fiskepirterminalen in downtown Stavanger: friday’s 13:15hrs. See more information on getting here.
Once you arrive in Flørli, you will be welcomed by the group leader and led to your quarters in an apartment. The group shares an 8-person apartment, which means you’ll probably have to share a room with at least one other person. Groups 4 and 5 will spend most of their time around Flørlistølen in the mountains above the apartment. This cabin is also reserved for us and we will put up a teepee tent for those who would like to stay there, instead of in the apartment.
Your accomodation, all food and planned activities/outings are paid for by the project. If you have any dietary preferences, please tell us well before as there is no shop in Flørli. Personal “luxuries” such as tobacco, alcohol, medicine and the like you have to bring yourselves.
