    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will have the opportunity to experience life in a small village in Lapland, share their skills and perhaps learn new ones. Our family enjoys getting to know people from other places and we hope you will enjoying getting to know us too!
    Although we are all fluent in Swedish we speak mainly English together and with our guests so if you are looking for a place where you will be fully immersed in Swedish our place is not a good match.

We are looking for a companion for our ten year old child who has special needs. There may also be work helping around our houses and garden or picking wildberries. We are looking for someone who likes children and has some experience working with them, has a friendly and calm manner and who enjoys being outdoors and practical work.
