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.
Sometimes you will have to work alone, as we have those days that we are constantly busy with paperwork and computer work.
There is also not a lot of luxury at the moment. Toilets are being built and only dry (outside) toilets are available.
Which means you will have to go outside with -20 during the night if you want to go to the toilet.
Cooking is mostly done from a stove and living here is very primitive.
We are looking for fun, young and motivated people to help us on the park with all-round activities such as cleaning, building, painting and maintenance.
We have 8 dogs, but there is not a lot to do with the dogs. We keep them as pets. Not as working dogs.
So if you are coming to help with us for the dogs, you will be quickly disappointed.
Please remember, there is only a dry toilet at the moment which is outside. The shower is in our own house which we can share. The living space for all of us is quite small and the internet/phone connection is really bad.. or sometimes there is no connection at all.

Skills are not needed and is absolutely not a requirement and you don't have to be strong as superman.
Vision and healthy thinking is an absolute requirement, so is motivation.
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.
Also, while we have 8 dogs.. we are not in to dogsledding. They are pets, not working dogs.
There is also not a lot of work to be done with the dogs, but you are always allowed to brush or play with the dogs.
Before we allow you to be alone with the dogs, we always check if there is a connection. The dogs mean everything to us and we try to be careful before introducing them to new people.
Unfortunately, there is no disco or restaurants nearby, but we can always have our own party here with music and great food!

Very flexible. max 32 hours a week, including weekends.
Depending on when we have guests, it might be possible that we will ask for your help during the weekends and that you will have more free time during the week.
Working hours are not very strict. There is a lot of freedom and you are allowed to take a break whenever you want.
Obviously, food and accommodation is free and our kitchen is your kitchen.
Your monetary compensation will be 300 euro the first month. 375 euro the second month and 450 euro the following months after.
Caravan/motor-home with your own bedroom inside.
There is no kitchen in the caravan. You are allowed to use ours, but we do prefer to eat all together.
It's a nice caravan with a table and a fridge, but the living space might be small if you stay all day in the caravan.
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 go for hiking or fishing. Mushroom picking and blueberry picking.
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. But be prepared, things can be really boring if you don't like to work and if you don't have any connection with the rest of the world using internet.
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.
