    Description

    Hi, we are a family of reindeer herders from northern Sweden. In the week, we live in Kiruna and on the weekends we are up in the mountains (weather permitting) herding reindeer. I live in one apartment with my 2 boys and my partner lives 5 minutes down the road with her 3 kids.

    I need help with the boy's to get them to school and som activities after school.
    The nature around is amazing!
    We will be herding some weeks and when we are up on the mountains we will make ice fishing and sun bathing!

    We eat mostly meat, reindeer and moose, prepared in different ways.
