  • Description


    *We unfortunately cannot provide any immigration letters

    We are a couple of long time travelers and former Workawayers that now run a small hotel in the most beautiful and remote place we could find. As we have been Workaway guests in many countries around the world (North America, Africa and South America, Europe) we know what makes a Workaway experience fantastic and we are eager to make this happen for you.

    We live in a gorgeous First Nation community with a lot of events and activities situated in an amazingly wild abundance of nature. Forests, lakes, mountains, beautiful views at every corner, tons of wild animals and amazing people and culture to meet and discover. This is a favorite place for hiking, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, fishing, and much more. And guess what? we also have the warmest lake in the Yukon 5mn down the road with a nice and quiet sand beach where you can swim and relax for hours. And in in winters there are just as many activities: dog mushing, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, snow machine to only name a few.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have been living in the Yukon for 5 years now and have been trying to enjoy every aspect of it. We will love to share with you the best spots and the equipment to go discover them whether it's on a several day canoe trip or the amazing spots at the end of the road. While you are staying and working with us there are also plenty to discover and enjoy locally especially for those who enjoy nature. Also, the community and the First Nation are both very active and offer plenty of great activities such as hide tanning, archery courses, snowshoe making and much much more.

  • Help


    Depending on what you're looking for there's tons of projects at home like building things, gardening and such; or the hotel often needs help. It has been renovated to a brand new state a year ago. Everything has been super well maintained and absolutely loved by our clientele. so we're looking for people that are interested to come and live on the property and either take-on some office/housekeeping/maintenance tasks to keep the business rolling or for people to help us accomplish all our side projects.

    We prefer to tailor the work week around what people are more interested in terms of tasks and quantity but the main goal of this exchange is for people to be able to discover the beautiful Yukon so we try to stay between 15 and 25h per week. Even though the platform limits paid work to 40h per week, it is highly unlikely that we would be interested in that type of exchange and of course impossible to exceed it. We pay for every hours of work and offer wages well above minimum wage.

    We also have a 1 year old toddler and we would be super happy to welcome a babysitter to help us with general childcare. There is no daycare for children in our community so having some kind of nanny or au pair would be awesome. Our kid’s name is Nara, she is an extra cute child that loves to play around and has the most contagious laugh! Please let us know if you are interested in babysitting and if you have any experience.

  • Accommodation


    depending on when you come and what type of exchange we decide to do it's either one (or a mix) of those three options:

    -a really large and private living space with great view, private kitchen and bathroom. All this on a 5 acre property where the possibilities are endless.

    -A big camper trailer with all the commodities and unlimited internet. And if you're nice I might even be willing to take it to the lake for your days off so it feels like you have a lake-house

    -A huge off the grid cabin about 15mn away from our hotel that has absolutely all the peace you have ever dreamed of.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    On top of all the great thing listed above and all the fantastic things you will discover once here, we sometimes need help at the hotel that can go beyond a normal Workaway exchange. We sometimes need people (preferably a couple) to cover for our days off (either weekends or holiday) and take on some responsibilities at the hotel while we are away. In that case we offer full time positions for the duration of our leave.
