  • Descrição


    Hi! :)

    ---> We are looking for help from 19th of ocotber - 4th of November (2 weeks), and from middle of december 2022 until end of June 2023 <---

    Thank you!

    We are a family of 5. We have two daughters, 11 months and 4 years old, and one son, who is 6,5 years old.

    We also have one cat, Pusi, a friendly family member who is a bit shy, but very cosy and kind when you first get to know with him.

    We live in Karasjok, in Northern Norway, a bit outside the center, in a quiet, beautiful place.

    I, Sire Márjá, work in health care, and my man, Per Ailu, is a reindeer herder. We also have a tourist company what we are building, and will be running together with his nephew from spring 2022. Now we are preparing to winter and spring season 2022. Sire M stays at home since she has permission from her work, but is mainly working daily with the tourist company with office work and guiding here at home.

    In generally we need help at home, to housekeeping, babysitting, and to everyday chores and mainentance around the house. During the year different tasks may be, depending on the season and on the reindeer, but the main work is with tasks in the house and helping with the kids.

    Autumn is very hectical, and a time we need help, here at home, and also when we together go to the area where we collect and slaughter the reindeer.

    In winter time (december - april) we also need help to feed the reindeer we keep in our garden and clean their surroundings, and take them to a walk (tamed reindeer, from autumn 2022). But if you don't feel comfortable with this, it is ok, then you can take care of the kids while we feed and work with the reindeer :)

    In April starts the spring's most beautiful journey. Spring migration to the calving area and to summer pasture. In April we begin to feed and collect the reindeer herd, and around 20.04 the spring migration starts and lasts for about 5--7 days. When we get back to Karasjok, we have the reindeer in the fence to separate the female reindeer from the male reindeer. This is a unique chance to experience the most beautiful journey. You will be with us on the snowmobile, when we start the migration, and help out with the kids.

    During 15th of may – 15th of june 2020 we herd the female reindeers 24/7 while they are giving birth to reindeer calves, to prevent attacks from predatures like eagles, bears, wolverines, lynx and even crows. This period we need help especially to take care of the kids, and to everyday chores. This is very hectical period, because we also are working with tourists. If you visit us this period, you will have the chance to experience reindeer calving, witch is very rare to experience. Our company offers tours for small groups to our calving reindeer herd. You have to be very independent and self going if you want to come and help us this period, because me, the mom in the house, will be having guided tours every day ( if we have bookings) :)

    In june after the reindeer calves are born, we will move the reindeer herd to the mountains. But first we will mark the calves. You will get to be there with us, and help us with the kids out there.

    Algo mais...

    Here in Karasjok you can do alot of activities. We have dog sledding here, good cross country skiing opportunities, a small slalom hill, and alot of beautiful nature.

    In the summer time you can go to the beach, try salmon fishing, hiking in the woods, canoeing, experience mosquito paradise (haha), and alot other fun stuff.

    Autumn here is very hectical period for us, with reindeer work, as collecting the reindeer, slaughtering, moving the herd to the winter land, and working with the meat after the season. This is something you can participate when working with us this period, wich starts about 20.09-10.10, depending on the reindeer.

    Autumn is also berry season, cloudberry, cranberry and blueberry. We often go and pick berries. And autumn is also hunting season for grouse and elk. We dont hunt, because we have enough with the reindeer work.

    you can also visit cultural places, the sami parlament is located here in Karasjok, you can go to the museum, and we have an art gallery here as well.

    The nature here is beautiful, so living here, is and can be very peaceful. The center is small, but the people here are nice and friendly.

    We live 6 km outside the village, so you can either borrow our car if you want to see or visit places nearby, or you can join us when we have errands in the village. You dont have to have a car license to work here, just so you know :)
