    -- note --
    We've received many friendly messages and requests. Thank you!
    However, we've found 2 workaways and we won't be able to accommodate someone new in the following months.
    -- update november --
    We are running a small shop in the city of Örnsköldsvik (75km from our home) and are potentially looking for a someone that wants to stay long-term with the intention to move to Sweden permanently. Please let us know if you are interested.

    We are Nayiem and Sophia, both 28 years old.
    We are originally from the Netherlands and we've been working as volunteers on a farm in Backsjön in early 2012.
    We've worked for 3 months and decided we should come back one day to start something in tourism.
    In 2019 we came back and moved in June 2020 to Backsjön to start our own glass igloo resort.

    Our project is still in development phase and we are looking for people to help and in return offer the same experience as what we had in 2012.

    We have 8 dogs. 1 Husky, 1 Akita, and 6 Huskita puppies.
    Working with us is very diverse and every day is not the same.
    We enjoy freedom, peace and the wilderness.

    We already warn you, while this region offers a lot of freedom and peace. Working with us is not always fun.
    Since we are running multiple businesses, the work or stress amount can be disturbing for some people.
    There is also not a lot of luxury at the moment. Toilets are being built and only dry toilets are available. Cooking is mostly done from a stove and living here might be very primitive.

    This could be your dream stay in a beautiful region!
    We are looking for fun, young and motivated people to help us with our dogs and on the park with all-round activities and work and learn along the way about working in and with the nature.
    You will be leaving this place with a new set of skills in your backpack.

    Working with us will allow you to learn how to train dogs, how to become a nice host to our guests, if you want, you can also help us with the store and you will also learn new skills while staying in a small remote area in the forest.

    Motivation and happiness is all we ask from you.

    Please keep in mind that things can be stressful and slow. In return we will still do our best to make sure you feel home with us.

    We offer you to feel the same experience. To learn about us, the locals, the region and how it feels to live directly in the nature with only forest, water and animals around you.

    We live in a forest region. Unfortunately, the nearest "shopping center" is 25km away from here.

    However, the forest has a lot to offer during all seasons!
    You can grab a bike or go for hiking or fishing. Mushroom picking and blueberry picking.
    We will also have snow-scooters and quads, if you can a handle these machines then you can use them as well. Sauna's and hot-tubs are free to use as long as it's not being used by the guests on the park.
    We also have a grill-house that you can use at your convenience.
    Our jeeps have a rooftop tent, if you really want to get away from it all, please take a car and enjoy your night in the nature and look at the stars.. if you are lucky, you will also see the northern lights!

    (p.s. depending on when you are reading this, many of the above are still in development and might not be accessible yet in November and December)

    For digital nomads, we don't have the best internet speed but it's unlimited bandwith, about 15mbit speed but can sometimes drop down to 1mbit, there is electric in your room and also a TV. Don't be shy to spend your free-time at home if you want to.

    The closest city is Sollefteå. During your off-days, we can arrange a ride to Sollefteå and pick you up later.
    If you prefer to go to a bigger city, there is a busstop in Sollefteå. Otherwise, Sophia goes shopping in Sollefteå at least once a week, you can join if you want.
