  • Description


    Hello! We, Ingrid and Thomas emigrated from Austria to Lapland 5 years ago. A year ago we moved to our dream place. Here we now live with our 18 sled dogs - Scandinavian hounds - on a 1 hectare property in the middle of nature. Our dogs are our hobby, we have a racing team and a few spare "players". We also want to offer tours for tourists from 2021. Our residential area is very snow reliable. Here in winter you can see wonderful snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and, with luck, northern lights. In summer there are trips to the forest for blueberries, cranberries and mushrooms. Nearby are several lakes where you can fish and paddle wonderfully. Whoever comes here comes into the middle of nature, a paradise for nature lovers!

    In autumn and winter we need help with the dogs. That means feeding, training, repairing huts, shoveling snow out of the kennels, general snow removal. In summer and autumn we need help with repairs, construction work, in the household and in the garden.

    We like to go to the forest around our house, grill on the river, fish with our boat and do everything we can do here in nature.

    A word about Corona - very few people live here in the north, the probability of getting infected is low, we pay great attention to hygiene and are extremely careful when shopping! We naturally expect you to arrive safely here and be just as careful!

    Hallo! Wir, Ingrid und Thomas sind vor 5 Jahren von Österreich nach Lappland ausgewandert. Vor einem Jahr sind wir an unseren Traumplatz übersiedelt. Hier leben wir nun mit unseren 18 Schlittenhunde - skandinavian hounds - auf einem 1ha großen Grundstück mitten in der Natur. Unsere Hunde sind unser Hobby, wir haben ein Rennteam und ein paar Ersatz"spieler". Wir wollen ab 2021 auch Touren für Touristen anbieten. Unsere Wohngegend ist sehr Schneesicher. Hier kann man im Winter wunderbar Schneeschuhwandern, Langlaufen, mit Glück auch Nordlichter sehen. Im Sommer bieten sich Ausflüge in den Wald zum Blaubeeren, Preiselbeeren und Pilze sammeln an. Ganz in der Nähe sind mehrere Seen wo man wunderbar fischen und paddeln kann . Wer hier her kommt, kommt mitten in die Natur, ein Paradies für Naturliebhaber!

    Im Herbst und Winter brauchen wir Hilfe mit den Hunden. Das heißt Füttern, trainieren, Hütten reparieren, Schnee aus den Zwingern schaufeln, allgemeine Schneeräumung. Im Sommer und Herbst brauchen wir Hilfe bei Reparaturen, bei baudingen, im Haushalt und Garten.

    Wir gehen gerne in den Wald, der rund um unser Haus ist, grillen am Fluss, Fischen gerne mit unserem Boot und machen gerne alles was man hier in der Natur tun kann.

    Einen Satz noch zu Corona - hier im Norden leben sehr wenig Menschen, die Wahrscheinlichkeit sich zu Infizieren ist gering, wir achten sehr auf die Hygiene und sind ausgesprochen vorsichtig beim Einkaufen! Wir erwarten uns natürlich, dass ihr gesund hier ankommt und genauso vorsichtig seit!
