    Description

    Hi, my name is Olof and I'm living with my 2 boys, Áslat and Áilo, 8,6 y my girlfriend Viktoria livs separate course we have to many kids for one place. We are a family of reindeer herders from northern Sweden. There is mostly wilderness around the place where we live, trees, mountains, lakes and wildlife. At the moment I need help with the boys while I'm herding deers.support them so they go to the school cab at time 0745, and some house cleaning, on holidays you can join to the reindeer herd! We like the nature, hunting, building and being in the wilderness. We also have two dogs.

    We eat mostly meat, reindeer and moose, prepared in different ways. Eating only vegetables would not give us enough energy to be outside and work. We can't unf host vegetarian!
