We are a family of two adults, 4 dogs and two horses looking for help on our 7 acres in the wilderness. We are settled in a beautiful valley outside of Atlin with access to nearby rivers, lakes and stunning highcountry. The town of Atlin is appr. 16km away. Amazing scenery and a wonderful adventure playground.
We are looking for a responsible adult or couple. You need to be self sufficient and feel comfortable being out in the boonies.
Our wifi is limited and there's not always electricity. Also, as we sometimes are away for work,you should be able to be alone for a couple of days without feeling lonely.
Must love dogs!
We also speak german.
Atlin is located 2 hours south of Whitehorse/Yukon and can only be accessed through the Yukon. Pick-up from Whitehorse can be arranged.
NOTE: we're hosting from May to September—not during the wintermonths.
