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.
