We are Nayiem and Sophia, both 29 years old and we live in a beautiful place in the North of Sweden together with 8 dogs and 4 chickens.
We are originally from the Netherlands and we’ve been working as volunteers on a farm in Backsjön in early 2012.
We decided that we should come back one day and start our own tourist resort in Backsjön.
Which finally happened in early 2019 :)
We are looking for young and motivated people with a mature mindset that would like to help us with all-round work at our tourist resort and in return we will do our best to offer you the same experience as what we had in 2012.
Working with us is usually not every day the same.
We try to enjoy freedom, nature, peace and the wilderness of this region and do our best to avoid any type of stress.
Having stress is not always avoidable though.
Depending on the weather, sometimes we work over-hours and sometimes we don’t work at all for a whole day. But on average, you shouldn’t be working more than 32 hours per week.
Nayiem usually works a lot in the office with remote projects that include blockchain, software development etc. So it might be possible that we will not be outside to work.
In that case it might be possible that you will be either working alone or together with other workawayers.
Sophia is a mom and she is usually busy every day with the baby and with the daily household work such as laundry, cleaning, prepping food, doing the dishes etc.
Most of the time we also have my brother and Monika, a friend of ours working at the park.
Things that you should know before sending a message :)
The comfort here is not very luxurious.
You would be sleeping in a caravan and the toilet is located outside a few metres from your caravan. The outside toilet is a dry-toilet. This could be very disturbing if it’s minus 20 outside or during the night.
Also, we do have 8 dogs, but they are pets and part of the family. We don’t have them for work or for dog sledding.
If we feel comfortable enough and the dogs accept you, you could maybe brush the dogs or take a dog with you when you are going for a hike. But we are extremely careful with this.
Cooking is done from an electric stove or sometimes from a BBQ.
Normally we eat all together, but you are free to cook or make meals whenever you want.
Obviously, meals are paid for by us unless you have a strong appetite to eat caviar and drink champagne every day :)
We are not vegans or vegetarians. We don’t mind cooking for vegetarians though. For vegans however, we might need some help and we can’t promise that you will like what we eat.
That’s basically all.

Some other things that we actually don’t have to mention.
But it seems we have no choice due to past experience.
- Cleaning your own caravan or living space.
- Don’t throw cigarette buds or trash in the forest, on the ground, roads, grass or whatsoever.
- Bringing your own dishes and bottles to the kitchen.
Very flexible. max 32 hours a week, including weekends.
Depending on when we have guests, it might be possible that we will ask for your help during the weekends and that you will have more free time during the week.
It’s also possible that when the weather is great, that we work all day and the evening, but as compensation you will have more time the rest of the week.
Working hours are not very strict. There is a lot of freedom and you are allowed to take a break whenever you want.
Obviously, food and accommodation is free and our kitchen is your kitchen.

500 € - second month
700 € - third month and following months
Long term contracts are possible if you are good :)
Caravan/motor-home with your own bedroom inside.
There is no kitchen in the caravan. You are allowed to use ours, but we do prefer to eat all together.
It's a nice caravan with a table and a fridge, but the living space might be small if you stay all day in the caravan.
We live in a forest region. Unfortunately, the nearest "shopping center" is 25km away from here.
Unfortunately, there is no disco or restaurants nearby, but we can always have our own party here with music and great food!
However, the forest has a lot to offer during all seasons!
You can go for hiking or fishing. mushroom picking, blueberry picking, use the hottub or sauna.
When there is no work, please make sure that you can handle the quietness of the nature.
For some people, the silence is just too much or too boring..
For digital nomads, we don't have the best internet speed but it's unlimited bandwith, about 15mbit speed but can sometimes drop down to 1mbit, there is electric in the caravan for your laptop and mobile. Don't be shy to spend your free-time at home if you want to. But be prepared, things can be really boring if you don't like to work and if you don't have any connection with the rest of the world using internet.
The closest city is Sollefteå. During your off-days, we can arrange a ride to Sollefteå and pick you up later.
If you prefer to go to a bigger city, there is a busstop in Sollefteå. Otherwise, Monika goes shopping in Sollefteå at least once a week, you can join if you want.
We accept workawayers based on their personality.
Having you here means that you will be close to our family, the baby, the dogs and chicks.
When you contact us, please answer the questions below with full honesty.
- Why do you want to come to Sweden and what attracts you the most?
- What are your hobby's?
- Favorite music (please name a few artists or groups)
- Favorite food (name a few)
- Favorite drink (name a few)
- What do you love the most?
- Do you have any allergies? for example dog fur etc
- Is there something that you don't like?
- Something else you would like to mention?
Please make sure to let us know when you would like to come and for how long.
We prefer to have people that are willing to stay longer than a month, but anything is negotiable.
