There is also in wintertime northern lights ,clean white snow to enjoy with ski on your feet .

    The helper/helpers will live in my house or a cabin near by , share shower and kitchen with me ,they can either eat food I cook or do their own food in my kitchen . In periods they can live and sleep ,make food in a hut near by or sleep in a lavvo . Its a great experience to sleep in a lavvo /tentipi in the midnightsun . In my cabin in Finnmark there is not inside water ,also the wc is in a little house outside so its quite primitive way to live .

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Its much to do in the this part of the country if you love nature ,fishing or sightseeing . I expect people that love animals and nature . I prefer to host people that can eat fish and meet witch is a what I am bringing home when I hunt and Fish .
    OBS ! I also not take vegetarian and vegans into my home because of the main food here is meat and fish that I have hunted and fished by myself.. Its a natural diet when you live in the wilderness .
    I prefer workawayers who is willing to help me ,like eager to please rather than like "Whats in it for me ",with focus of their self . Recomend all that want to join me to read my feedback from earlier workaways ! And just saying , there lived people on the earth before the shower was explored for about 120 years ago ;-) we are still able to wash ourself without installed water in house in the 20-century, and then I think of the time I spend in my cabin whtch is without water installed ! I dont host vegetarians and vegans because my household is based on fishing,picking berrys,mushroom ,herbs and hunting moose,ducks,geese,grouse ,hare and more . You are welcome to join me and I will do my best to give you a nice stay. In wintertime there is not so much to do if there is not snowing a lot,if snowing then showeling snow is a task ,and we have some months witch is quite dark al day around from november until february . At the same time it can be bright nights with Northern light and a lot of stars.
    I can always offer a lot of lokal food witch comes right from the nature.
    I recomand my guests to bring warm cloths and shoes for the stay. I live in a artic area and temperature and weather can be tough .
    In wintertime a good tork/ headlamp is recomanded .
    Normally it is not heating in the bedrooms except electric heat blanket .
    It is a lot of duves so it is easy to stay warm . And eating energi rich food is a must .
    I do not need help with singing,boardgames,dansing,sports yoga,meditation or any culture
    and art prodjects . Wrote this because a lot of ww profiles is full of this information and missing any information of practical workingskills and what they want to learn about what i can offer at my place and around what i am doing during the seasonal work.
