    Description

    Hello all travelers!

    My name is Eki. I've hosted over the past eight seasons, mainly in the summer months, through two different international organizations of volunteers around the world who come here to my place. I have experienced this a brilliant idea for cultural exchange and received a lot. I've been able to meet different kinds of people, learned their way of living and I´ve got more understanding of the world around.

    Getting to know the locals, living with the locals is the best when travelling. And this way of travelling is great. Daily budgets can be small because of being able to live with local families. It adds more insight into global life too, and we see that we all are the same kind of people - with our own joys, daily worries, or sorrows.

    I have had a dream that I invite you to help me make. My big vision is to build my beach project as a little eco lodge and a meeting point in the future where trekkers, nature lovers and travelers, cyclists, backpackers in Finland meet each other, and can spend time together as either to be a volunteer or budget traveler. In my mind, I see the Beach project as small, atmospheric bungalows surrounded by lush gardens and beach woods, which are led by meandering forest paths. 

    Working in vegetable gardens will increase your understanding of the importance of clean food, and you will learn how to grow your own food. We grow, collect and fish the most of our meals. You may find here a new direction for your life and of course more understanding about ecoliving.

    I need assistance with renovating jobs ( I´m planning to build an eco tiny house on the beach), daily house work, such as housekeeping, gardening, making firewood, berry picking, mushroom picking too... depending on the season. Volunteers should be proficient in English, as an important reason for hosting is that I have an opportunity to practice my language skills.

    This bohemian house is an old border guarding building, total with 10 rooms, 3 floors, located close (400 m) to the Russian border in Eastern Finland. Here are also living a cat and two Alaskan Malamutes sled-dogs (kept outside 24/7). This is a very quiet and peaceful place, with the nearest shop located 25 kilometers away. Here you can enjoy the silence, candle lights and nature.

    Private room and daily meals (no meat apart from fish) are provided, WI-FI and a free gym is also available in the village nearby. Summer activities are canoeing, rowing, trekking, mountain biking, bird and bear watching, yoga, fishing, swimming...

    Volunteers will be welcomed from mid of April to end of October during the 2022 season.

    This place has good vibes :)
