  • Description

    Description

    We, Håkan, Lotta and our 13 dogs, are living in the small skiresort Kittelfjäll in south Lappland, Sweden.
    We're 46 and 52 years old. The dogs are 11 Siberian huskys, a spaniel and a moosehound.
    Lotta is working at the local store and Håkan workes with the dogs at home. Our sleddogs are young, age 3 to 7.
    The dogs live in one big pack with us, we have our ground fenced in. They sleep inside the house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in the north, next to the mountains. You would be outside with the dogs during the day, in various locations, woods, mountains, icy lakes. Its an ideal place to experience wilderness, its littarly around the corner. But its also a small community with a grocerystore, small hotels and restaurants. Monday - Friday there is a bus twice a day.
    We are 60 km from Norway and 90 km from nearest town.
    We will show you swedish cooking, if you like!

    WINTERSEASON
    Kittelfjäll is a small skitresort, you can go skiing, heliskiing, crosscountryskiing, icefishing and much more.

    AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER
    There are lots of trails up the mountains if you want to hike. There are streams and lakes to fish in. Or just camp out.

    Our dogs live with us in the house, so at night you can cuddle up on the sofa with as many as you like.
    We are two social people living in a quite small house. We think the person who comes here also needs to be social, with both people and dogs. Lots of driving will require a driverslicence, and you should be prepare to showell snow and help with daily chores.
