    Soon our autumn and winter season are starting again!! We are currently looking for enthusiastic driven outdoor people to help us train our huskies and share our passion of our way of life with guests from all over the world!!Responsibilities would included but are not limited to: preparing dog food, cleaning dog yards, cuddling with each and every dog and making sure they are well cared for and starting to train the dogs for the winter season. This involves getting to know individual dogs, and training them with carts and quad bikes before the snow arrives. We require people that are in it for the lifestyle... the nature, the adventure and the experience!! Our kennel is small and we try to give our guest the best personal and professional experience we can! Thats where YOU come in!! Since our kennel is away from the main touristy areas, a regular drivers license to help with our transfers is a must. Are you up for a challenge? a change in lifestyle? hardwork but tremendously awesome!! Contact us!

    Guides have a private bedroom! The rooms are in a cabin at the kennel. The rooms are cozy, have a nice bed, electricity. We have a guide room with cooking facilities and bathroom with shower!

    we will give you some pocket money to be able to cook your own food in the guide room kitchen! there is a small store about 4 kms away but we do go to kiruna to do a big shop once every 10 days or so.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    People joining our team will work and live at our kennel. We have limited public transport so its important to understand that it can be quite isolated! Its a lifestyle not a job!! We dont work from 9-17! And dont live an “A4” way ;) If you are looking for a vacation then please dont apply! If you are up for a challenge and not afraid of hard work and can handle being away from a city then apply! Looking for people who are motivated positive, willing to work without constant supervision and flexible.. (things change all the time! ) right now we are looking for people to start for our autumn and winter season.. ! No smokers please...and a drivers license is an absolute MUST!
