  • Description


    INFO: Our Campsite is closed during Winter. We are only seeking help from May to September.
    The minimum time of stay is 3 weeks.

    Hello there. We are Stefan and Corinne from Switzerland, running a small Campsite in beautiful southern Lapland.

    We are very easy going and we are looking for people that can help us a little with our projects for 2022.

    The Campsite has been closed for several seasons, before we bought and reopened it in 2019. As you can imagine, there is still a lot of renovating, fixing and building to do. You will not be involved in our daily business on the campsite.

    In return we provide breakfast, lunch and dinner to our volunteers.
    Usually we start our day with breakfast between 9 and 10 am, but there is no fixed time. Lunch comes in form of sandwiches and/or leftovers from the day before, (but its on you to prepare it), and dinner is the meal we usually cook/prepare for everyone so that we all can sit and eat together. However, we are more than happy if you like to take over the cooking every now and then. During high season, the busiest time is in the evening and it can sometimes be quite a hand full to welcome guests and prepare dinner for everyone at the same time. Therefore, if you want to take over the dinner cooking, you are also VERY welcome :)
    If you are interested, or have any questions, send us an email.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Your benefit here is to spend some time in nature in a rather layed back and easygoing environment. Last summer we had volunteers from Germany, Holland, France, Spain and Switzerland, but for communication we spoke mainly English. So it is not only a place to meet new people from all over the world, it is a also a good place to practice your English.

    Projects for spring/summer 2022 are: painting, building, starting a little garden, creating sign posts, clear out the workshop (there is a lot of scrap and usefull stuff on one pile that needs to be sorted). Also cutting small trees, chopping wood and grass needs to be done. The list is too long for typing it all down here.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We dont have any night- or city life up here, but a lot of nature where you can relax down at the beautiful lake, walk in the forest, sit at the campfire with other volunteers, and of course fishing. If you like to fish, you are most definitely in the right place here. We also have a boat that you can use.
    You can also go for a day trip to the closest town Vilhelmina. The Inlandsbanan (a Train that runs during summer season) stops here at our own little trainstation.
