What participants say about the project, taken from the evaluation survey 2014.

Participants gave the project 4,68 out of 5,00 points in overall satisfaction!

It was magical, I can’t describe how grateful I am for everything!

I had an amazing stay in Florli working and relaxing in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I can’t wait to go back there!

The most amazing experience. I learned a lot of things and I met really nice people.

Feel what we had experienced only when you say “I have been there too”

It was my first time in Norway and I really enjoyed the time with you guys, the great group athmosphere, the tasty food (blueberry dreams….) and the beautiful surroundings of the Lysefjord and the forest we were working and hiking in. I can absolutely recommend this project and would love to participate in a similar project again, if it fits to my travel/studying plans. Tusen Takk! Hope to see u all again somewhere somehow 🙂

Amazing experience, beautiful place

Amazing experience – in many different ways!

Being part of a melting pot of friendship, fun, happiness and lots of important work for the local community are a mile stone in my life. A magic sensation that will be part of my personal experience forever. Thanks to the project I wish myself to be part of another one in Norway next year.

Best way to explore and lively connect with the beauty of fjord in Norway.

Incredible volunteering week in the Lysefjord! Astonishing place with beautiful views, friendly people and great food! Recommendable for everyone, special for who wants to travel and hike for first time in Norway!

I spent 3 months in New Zealand also in a volunteering programme. But this week in Norway was one of my best experiences in my life. Maybe a bit too short but awesomeeee 🙂

I was not expecting that Norway is so great country. As well as norwegians 🙂

I found myself while getting lost in the trails of Norway.

I think it is nice to put some pictures from this summer on the website so everybody is able to see what they can expect!


Now live from Flørli

Hi you all! Group 1 has now been in Flørli and it was just great! Such a nice group of people – a lovely mixture that somehow fitted well together. The weather was fantastic and we woke up to sun every day. Working on the power-hall came along well and we started painting by the end of the week. Arvid has now taken over as the team leader of group 2 and apparently, they are almost done painting this huge building.

Despite our zeal and working enthousiasm, we have also been enjoying long, sunny evenings on the shore of the fjord. Fishing, going out with the boat, grilling or simply relaxing and reading a book. On our free days, we were hiking up the 4.444 stairs that Flørli is so well known for. Up there, nothing reminds of the world below – crystal clear lakes, the last snow (sledding!) and far views from the mountain tops. We also had a trip to the famous Kjerag – a 1000m big wall towering over the Lysefjord.


Extra group

As there has been considerable interest in volunteering in the Lysefjord, there will be organised an extra group. The Stavanger Trekking Association will lead the work. This group will arrive at the Preikestolen Mountain Lodge near Jørpeland and make its way working and hiking to Lysefjorden Turisthytte in the town of Lysebotn. The group will work with trail amelioration, clearing shrubs and regrowth in strategic places as well as some cleaning, painting and repairs of cabins. The trip will culminate in a visit to the majestic Kjerag, icon of Fjord Norway. More info here!

Date group 6: Friday 22nd august  – Friday 29th august
