    Hi travellers!

    My name is Eki and I need assistance with daily house work, such as housekeeping, gardening, making firewood, small renovating jobs, berry picking, mushroom picking... depending on the season.

    April-October 2019 I need 1-3 volunteers at a time.

    This bohemian house is an old border guarding building, total with 10 rooms, 3 floors, located close (400 m) to the Russian border in eastern Finland.

    I have lived here for the past 20 years, currently I have a cat and four Alaskan Malamutes sled-dogs (kept outside 24/7).

    This is a very quiet and peaceful place, with the nearest shop located 25 kilometers away. Here you can enjoy the silence and nature.

    Private room and daily meals (no meat apart from fish) are provided, WI-FI, sauna everyday if needed, and a free gym is also available in the village nearby. Summer activities are canoeing, rowing, trekking, cycling, bird and bear watching, yoga, fishing, rafting, climbing, swimming...

    Around my village 3 of my good friends are hosting too and we use to have parties together... this place has good vibes :)

    You can explore a mystical Karelian culture, visit various cultural attractions in the surrounding areas. If you are here for a longer period of time, we can also apply for a Russian visa for you and visit Russian Karelia.
