  • Description


    We are a family with 3 children, living in Jokkmokk, in the north of Sweden. We have had very nice experience with our earlier workawayers and want to host more nice people. In exchange we want you to do some housework and cooking and give a helping hand during our stay in the mountains during the calfmarking season in july.

    We have a house in a small town with 2500 citizens. We live close to the nature and love being outside when we can, for example taking walks, go for skiing, snowmobile, bringing a picknic or cooking over the fire. You will follow us to the reindeers when we are on a trip up in the mountains. We also travel, occasionally, to Rensjön, Sweden where we have a house, and will need help to travel with the whole family or only with mom and the children. Food and stay will be arranged for you also when we go somewhere.

    We love company and enjoy sharing our life style, showing the surroundings and getting an intercultural exchange.
    We like to cook healthy and eat locally sourced reindeer, fish, berry and vegetables with it. We appreciate if you can cook or bake for us and with us - we love trying new tastes!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In your spare time, you have plenty of opportunities to explore the nature around us. There are a few trails in the nearest surroundings that you can hike or ski along. It is also relatively close to some real wilderness areas. We can lend you hiking gear (tent, sleeping bag, cooking utilities, rucksack etc.). It is easy going for skiing directly from our house; we have nice prepared snowmobile trails just in front of the hose. We have nice skiing-conditions.

    Due to our work with the reindeer, we live in the mountains for a couple of weeks during summer and you will be able to follow us on these adventures and give a helping hand with the kids.

    Since we live in a small town, far from the city pulse, this experience will be perfect if you like wild life and being outdoors.

    We speak mainly lule and northern saami language at home but we also mix swedish quite much. We speak relatively fluent english. The oldest boys are quite good in english, and learning!
