  • Description


    Hello you. The project (sleddoggs, chickens, tourist cabins, tours in summer and winter time) is sighted about 280km north from Oslo near Idre.

    We live in Sweden at the border to Norway. It is quite easy to get here by bus from airport Gardermon. Our family is orignaly from Switzerland. My parents have build up the project from scratch 18 years ago. Now, we (the second generation, still young around 39 ;) wants to develop the site and activities and build- and fresh up more infrastructure for the near future.
    In winter (Dez-Mar) we conduct sleddog tours and other outdoor activities (snowscooter tour, ice fishing, snowshoes and crosscountry skiing.

    In winter time, you would participate in prepairing those tours. Help to take care of the dogs and other animals on the farm.

    In the sommer month, it would be more construction work and upcycling projects.

    Write us, to ask for the current projects, if it could be interessting for you.

    Therefore we are looking for some handy people to help us developing the project further on.

    What we offer:

    inspired people, cabin in the woods style living ( but comfortable :-), internet, car and sauna is here. It is a nice place where people are going for vaccation.

    You get accommodation, food and we have a realy good coffee machine and we do respect the maximal five hours ocupation term for workawayer.

    What we like:
    People which like to be active and team up. Bad mood days occurs, but it would be cool, if you have the ability to motivate yourself again. It can be raining or it can be shity wheather (cold). We provide you good clothes and everything.
