    Descripción

    Located in Varangerbotn/Vesterelv, Nesseby Municipality in North Norway. Ragne is grown up in a Sami familiy with thousands of reindeer. The big herd of reindeer are up in the mountains the whole year around, but Ragne has a few reindeer at home in a fenced area in winter time. This might be reindeer that need special care due to different reasons.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    You will learn about huskies, dog-care, reindeer and about the sami culture.

    Here are a lot of opportunities, and what you learn depends on how active, motivated and receptive you are, and what time of the year you are coming here.

    We are remote, with only 900 inhabitants in the entire municipality. There is a village 5km away with a restaurant and bar, musem and a few other things. It is possible to get a bus to the nearby towns, but the busroutes are limited. Tana Bru is 20km away, Vadsø 55km and Kirkenes 120km. These places have amenities like cinemas, pubs, shopping centres etc.

    Please notice that our work and schedules will often change due to weather and animals, and we expect you to be 100% flexible with changing help schedules and days off. This is NOT a 9-5 job!

    Please notice that the house and dog-kennel is located in the forest with no next door neighbors, outside a small town, and you won't have a lot of transport possibilities. If you like to be around a lot of people all the time, this is not the correct place for you. If you are not in balance with yourself, it might be too isolated for you here.
