2019: you can still volunteer, please visit our new site www.florli.no/volunteering
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.
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
