    I am renovating old houses in Greenland. One of them belonged to Jørgen Brønlund located in Aasiaat, Jørgen Brønlund was one of the first polar explorers in Greenland. I needed handy people. I am going to build winter tents camp, and a couple of Iglo in the wilderness close to the icefjord near Ilulissat in Greenland. I am looking for soulmate voluteers, tough people who are able to participate in exploration by snowmobiles, boat, skiing, hiking, sleep in the tent in winter time, cook food, do shopping and help with different orders. If you want to challenge yourself, that volunteer job is definitely for you!
    Appreciated iceclimbing, climbing, kajaking, hiking, surviving skills, carpener and mechanical knowledge.
    Possible employment assistance in Greenland in future!
