  • Description


    We are a german/canadian couple with two little kids, 7 and 4 who operate tourism base rental cabins in the Yukon Territory. We have a few cabins we are renting out year round and also offering little adventure tours.
    As we expand and make ongoing improvements to buildings and surroundings, we could need some help on site as we are just a little family and dont have a big crew on site. We also have chickens and sleddogs on our little place.
