Bjørkedal is a village with Unesco-listed boatbuilder traditions. We have protected forests, red-listed plants, miles and miles of forest paths, and majestic mountains for hiking and climbing. If you are a nature lover, you will have a mecca for exploring. You will also be fine just enjoying the old farmhouse, the garden, the lake and the quiet yet vibrant life. The coworking and lounge have 400 years old timber walls. The private rooms are all equipped with comfortable beds. All rooms have their own worktable with ergonomic chairs and external screens.

This place is for people who really want to work. Explore yourself and your vulnerable society. The simple pleasures of life.

Community

We believe in non-hierarchies, cooperation, and love. In Bjørkedal, these values are still alive. We call it "dugnad". We help each other with important tasks, but otherwise, we let each other be individuals. Our community was created to share our values, but also because we need you—people who leave their mark.
The rural lifestyle is dying out, which is why we are so proud to open our old heritage family home to travelers and digital nomads from all over the world. The past is only wisdom; the future is learning.

Anne has practiced as a shaman and shaman teacher for thirty years.
The art of storytelling and the building of societies spring out of this work, but we are not a fixed belief system or a spiritual movement.
The biological need to belong and the responsibility to build healthy clans and healthy tribes in today's world are rooted in an underlying curiosity.

Location

Bjørkedalseidet (Bjørkedalsvatnet), Volda
The exact location is provided after the booking is confirmed.

Bjørkedalsvatnet

We have kayaks, a wood-fired bathtub, a mountain dairy house and lots of space in and around the house. You will really enjoy Bjørkedal if you are a person that needs space but still know that we humans are social beings. Village life has another tempo; adjusting to it will open up loads of creativity, cooperation, efficiency, and inspiration.

The boat-building traditions of Bjørkedal are well-known beyond the borders of Norway. Here, multiple replicas of Viking ships were created. Recently, the Bjørkedal boat builders constructed the world's longest tall ship, which is now on exhibit in Nordfjordeid. Nordfjordeid is a 15-minute drive from Bjørkedal. Twice a week, we go together in our 7-seat car for shopping, cafes, etc.

Bjørkedal is ideal for day trips to the West Cape, Måløy, Grotlesanden, Runde and Ålesund, Geiranger, and the Sunnmøre Alps. The aim of opening up the house for colivers is not only to create a society inside the society but that we can make an impact in Bjørkedal. Cooperation between borders is needed. We want you to make a difference in Bjørkedal. Instead of just exploring the village, you are welcome to inspire us, make a difference, share a smile, and chat about life, the weather, or whatever interests you.
