    Description

    Hello,
    if you are interested in northern nature, reindeer and working outdoors this place may be good for you.


    We are a couple living in north Finland. Our home is 350 km to the north of Arctic Circle, 18 km from Inari village. We have a farm which is mostly forest and small lakes. There is two hectares field to make hay for our tame reindeer. Our reindeer gives us self-sufficiency in meat and they are also pets for us. Our house is by the peaceful, beautiful lake, which is also good fishing lake.


    Mainly we need help in forest works: we have too many small pines to cut and prune the branches and carry all near the road. So we need help to forest clearing. We don't expect you to work alone in the forest, we are working with you. You don't need earlier forest work experience. It is enough if you are used to work physically and you like it.

    There is also some daily work with reindeer if you like working with them.
