  • Description


    Hei! I am a reindeer herding Sámi living in Karasjok, Norway and Inari, Finland. I work as a veterinarian as well. I have my own private practice, which gives me a certain freedom. I grew up in reindeer herding family and these extra ordinary animals are a huge part of my life. During the winter time, we have to take extra care of our reindeer. Some of the animals are taken home for special care. I also have riding horses that I love to spend my with.

    While at your stay, you will learn about the life of reindeer herding Sámi. We are the only indigenous nation in Europe. You will get to know to these extra ordinary animals of ours. Each animal is an individual. The tame ones have also names. We have also male reindeer, that are able to pull sledges.

    I am looking for a person, who already has experience to work with animals and horses to help around at our home. I don't have business activity, but I need help in our private daily life.


    -driver's licence
    -preferably some experience with animals
    -flexible and compliant person, with a good sense of humour
    -independent and self-initiated personality
    -to be able to work alone and in a team
    -good health and physical condition
    -good communications skills
    -good knowledge of english (or finnish, norwegian, swedish, if you are not fluent in english)

    Either You would need to take care of the horses in Karasjok, Norway or our reindeer in Inari, Finland.

    If taking care of the horses, it is also possible to ride the horses, if you are an experienced rider. (As an experienced rider, I mean that you need to have very good control of your own body, have a steady mind and good sense of humour. You can't be afraid of the horses nor unsure of yourself, when riding. Both horses can do basic dressage work, jump and they are ok when riding in the forest. The older one is able to do higher level dressage exercises and jump higher fences, if the rider is confident enough. I have a big riding arena, with good surface.)

    Stable work consist of cleaning, taking horses in and out during the colder weather, checking them at least twice daily, changing rugs, filling water buckets, monitoring the health of the horses and treat for example wounds if needed and all other basic maintaince work.

    Depending on the situation and weather, you would need to help to take care of the reindeer. You don't need to have any knowledge of reindeer in advance, because I will teach you all the important things about the reindeer and reindeer husbandry. You need to be able to drive a car during the winter time.

    Daily work with reindeer consist of feeding the animals, monitoring the health of the animals, helping me or some other family member to do basic maintaince work like simply fence reipair, helping with hay, separating the reindeer, treating sick animals etc. I wish that you would be comfortable to treat the sick reindeer by yourself, in case if all the family members are busy. Reindeer are located in Inari, Finland.

    Working hours might vary day to day. Therefore I hope to find someone, who is flexible. I need you to help out at least 5 days a week. Of course you are allowed to have free time as well. Schedules will be discussed with each workawayer individually.

    There is space for 1-2 workawayers.

    Contact me, if you are interested to help me out. Tell me something about yourself, your experience with animals and when you would be able to visit us.
