    Our family lives at the feet of the Oviken mountains in the Swedish region of Jämtland.
    In this unique fascinating nature we have built our own wooden house and spend the most time of the year.

    Our family consists of 2 adults and 2 younger children and one dog (Scandinavian hound). We are originally coming from Germany and speak therefore German, Swedish and English.

    Spring time starts after easter and is ongoing until end of may. The peak summer period is especially in the months of july and august. Then autumn is starting early in the North of Sweden. First snow is expected to come in October, latest in November.

    Volunteering at our lodge enables you to get in close touch with unspoiled nature. It will give you plenty of opportunities to enjoy calmness around the lodge, to slow down yourself during daily work. During main seasons we always meet a lot of different personalities staying here and making holidays. It is interesting to serve the different needs of people and communicate with them.

    UPDATE september 2021:
    We are currently seeking one person or a couple qualified for long-term dog sitting during the period of october - until mid november 2021 (7-8 weeks). Our dog is a Scandinavian hound, a very active sleddog race which loves to be outside. He is very friendly but needs a strong hand to continue with training during our time of abscence. The volunteer needs to have trained with dogs before. More details can be discussed.

    If you are interested in general to work at our home, please read our further description for appliance for 2022:
    During spring and summertime there used to be a lot of different tasks at our lodge and we therefore welcome helping hands. By working with our family you will get to learn about our business within tourism, get in touch with the exclusive wilderness of Northern Sweden, get a lot of insights in practical work and see clear results of your work.

    Here follows some description of work that we might need help with in general. Please ask for details regarding year 2022. Details to be discussed with volunteer according to skills.

    MAY - JUNE: gardening chores (grass preparing and cutting, cleaning from old leaves and stones), piling up firewood on pallets (no cutting, many help needed), general maintenance work on building and infrastructure before summer season (e.g. window cleaning, houses cleaning). Maintenance work on hiking trails with planks on the ground.

    JULY: piling up firewood, general maintenance projects on the houses.

    SEPTEMBER-NOVEMBER: dogsitting and/or housesitting in case we are absent or on holiday

    We are especially looking for volunteers with a lot of practical skills and self-thinking. Reliability, task-orientation and showing authority in regards handling with dogs are main criterias.

    The lodge is situated far away from neighbours (10km) and shopping possibilities (40km). The potential workawayer needs to be able to enjoy this unique and calm location. Due to this unique position we have a lots of possibilities for those who like trekking, fishing and being out in the nature. Driving licence and own car for volunteers freetime is advantage but not needed depending on your activities during freetime. We can pick you up at the nearest airport in Östersund (OSD), train station in Östersund or bus stop in Myrviken/Svenstavik.

    We prefer volunteers with no own animals, non-smokers, non-special-diets because this makes living-together much easier.
    We also prefer volunteers speaking German as this is our language at our place.

    Looking forward to meet you! Welcome to Sweden!
