Disconnect to Reconnect
Hagabrekka Wanderland is a sustainable lifestyle learning centre created to explore different practices towards regenerative living, recreational activities in nature, permaculture and yoga practice. We have a holistic approach towards sustainability, perceiving it as a lifestyle and a belief system integrating all aspects of life. We are completely off grid, growing parts of our own food, foraging wild herbs in the nature around us and using principles of permacuture to create a little paradise. We believe learning is best achieved through hands on experiences, so we are in the summertime open for anyone interested in learning about sustainable living. This is a continuous learning and growing journey for us as well as for visitors. We encourage everyone who visits us to disonnect from the screen, let go of the stress of daily life and reconnect to nature, a simple lifestyle enojying the present moment and healthy sustainable living.

Experiencing a different way of living
We aim to continue learning more every day, taking use of new technology in a way that can benefit all beings and the planet alike. By offering the experience of this sustainable way of living, we want to provide a 'toolkit' that anyone can use to make small changes in their life. Not only to live more in sync with nature, creating a more sustainable lifestyle, but also to increase happiness. We want to show that living sustainble does not mean that you have to give up joyeous parts of your life, on the contrary, you can live a richer life with more happiness. Increasing mindfulness in choices that you take, decrease in consumerism and materialism is a gift, not a loss. The experience of this can create a different perception, a change in values that show yoy how you can live more happy.
