    Hello!
    We have now filled up all the spots for the winter!! We will need workawayers from April 2019 and trough the summer and we will start working with the applications Januari/February...

    We are a dogmushing Company located in the North of Norway. In Winter we have the northen light and in summer we have the midnigh sun. We have about 100 dogs in our Kennel and all of them are weary special to us, so we need people who love dogs and love to work with dogs. We need people who can help with feeding, training, repairing stuff. Most of the work is done outside, so if you like dogs and being outside this is a job for you. We like having people for longer periods, because its nicer for the dogs that the people working with them get to know them. 2 monts or more is perfect!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Your efforts here will be rewarded with special experiences! The region is an exceptional place for hiking, skiing and mountainbiking with numerous peaks to climb and mountain lakes to discover. You will get to know the dogs with their different personalities and they will turn from strangers to friends. And you will get to enjoy the remote beauty and calmness of living out in the valleys.

    The Summer Season.
    We have two locations where we keep the dogs in the summer. Both of them are in beutiful areas with alot of nice hiking trails and beuatiful Mountains. You will spend youre Time in between these two places and somethimes you will spend some time alone. In beginning of august we start preparing and train the dogs for the Winter, And we will need help with that. The summer is the off period for the dogs where we dont have any Tourist, but its still alot of work. The dogs need love, care and attention every day, so you need to be a dog person. We are also reparing and getting Everything ready for the Winter. The summer is also where we have puppies.
    In one of the summer Kennels you will have no Indoor Toiliet, so if you need Indoor pluming all the time this might not be the Place for you. Driving Licence is a must, and we need people who can drive manuell cars, we dont have any automatic cars.

    The Winter Season
    Augusti- November is training period for the dogs, the Tourist season starts 100% in mid November. But from september and forward we might have some Tourist Groups now and then. Before the snow comes we use carts for the Tourist Groups. Then when the snow comes we start going on sleads. The Winter camp is located in a valley called Tamokvalley, we move up there somewhere between October and November depening on snow conditions. And its in the middle of some Amazing Mountains and there we provide trips for guest. You will be working alongside our dogmushing guides with dogs and Tourists. You might also help with training, overnight guest, serving food, dressing Tourist and keeping the camp tidy. We are a big Group of people working in the Winter and we all live up in the camp. Its a wilderness camp with small cabins, you will have to be prepared to live Close to oher people, You might also spend some time down In Furufaten where we keep The race team, sometimes we need help down there.
    The Winters up here can be weary Cold and windy but they are also absolutley amazing with the northen lights and alot of snow. So you have to like being outside in all kinds of weather. We like having pepole for a longer periods of time so you get to know the dogs and the dogs get to know you. Driving licenese for manuell cars is also a must for the Winter.
