  • Description


    Hello there workawyer!

    We invite you to the heart of Savitaipale Finland. Savitaipale is a beautiful, hospitable little town in between the lakes Saimaa and Kuolimo. It is well known for its various sports facilities (gym, pool, ice hockey, ice skating, curling, volleyball, tennis, horse riding, etc).

    Occasionally, we take our helpers to our cottage. The cottage is in a beautiful location near a lake with almost nobody around and where you can enjoy Finnish nature. There we may also need help with chopping wood, carpentry-related jobs, painting, etc..

    workawayers must be fully vaccinated with period passed 14 days
