  • Help


    We would be delighted to find somebody who has experience with kayaking also with certifikat, so they could help out as a guide for kayak tours. Apart from that the help the volunteer should provide would vary from their skills and the events that come up. Depending on the season and the respective activities offered the help could involve a large range of different tasks. From basic organization to translation services, guiding, sailing, help with sledding dogs (feeding and walking) fishing, help with website, help with cooking or shopping, she would be thrilled at any kind of initiative or creative idea from the volunteer's side.
