We are a couple from Germany and moved seven years ago to northern Norway. We have a huskyfarm with 27 dogs and we are in the process of rebuilding an apartment for guests, a complete guesthouse and new kennels for the dogs. Here, we need help. For example, work with wood (carpentry), lay tile and paint and all kind of craftmanship. Important!!! craftmanship and/or knowledge with sleddogs/huskies.
Daily tasks such as cleaning the kennels, feeding the dogs, train the dogs, renovate the house, common everyday work have to be made here. Working hours may be different, between 6 to 8 hours daily. One/two days in the week off.

We offer a recreational joint planning sightseeing tours and activities in the area.

Because these tasks should need a routine, we expect a minimum of 6 weeks and volunteers in the age from 25 years up. Is assumed independent thinking and acting as well as integrate and identify with the daily life.

It would be an advantage to speak german, because my husband does'nt speak english.

It is important to say that the volunteers also should take responsibility, since we both go to work alternately.

We offer: Accommodation in the guestroom or in our campervan with own bath and shower and also enjoying together with us in the house and having meals together in the livingroom. Also a lot of fun and trips with our dogs.
We live very quiet here in the middle of nowhere in norway on the southern part of the island Andøya - which is the northernmost island of the group of Vesterålen (close to Lofoten). We have no neighbors in the vicinity and there is no public transport. The nearest shopping opportunity is 20 km away. What you can do here? Fishing, hiking, whale watching and last but not least dogsledding!
You are welcome to join us.

We have a VACANCY from middle of april 2017 until end of july 2017. Either someone who can do craft skills (Woodwork, electrical, painting, renovation) OR someone who like cooking, cleaning, organizing in the house Or someone who trained dogs before!!!!!!!!
