Loma-Paksu is a guestfarm suituated in Finnish Lapland, about 200 km north of the polar circle. We offer holiday appartements, dormatories and a reservation restaurant. On the same yard we also run a foster home for currently four teenagers. In all seasons we offer a large variety of hospitality for any kind of events - school trips, birthday celebrations, weddings and so on.

Throughout the year we are looking for somebody who is happily willing to assist us with any kind of work for at least two weeks up to 2-3 months. Depending on the season we could need someone for helping in the hostel and restaurant (ideally in the winter season), for construction and painting works outside (during the summer) and to help with gardening & farming (also a typical summer job). In our enclosed foster home Päiviö there is always chance of spending time with the youngsters, for example helping at homeworks or taking them on outside activities.

Hence we are looking for someone who is social, openminded and happy to see what the day brings. For the summer work you should not be scared of getting dirty. In our volunteers we consider life experience as more important than age. And flexibility and a happy soul as more important than a perfect university degree, for example.

As remuneration for about six hours work per day we can offer you an own room and free food, as well as one day off per week. Also you can use the house's opportunities like saune/beach sauna, music instruments, wi-fi, etc. Also we are very happy to help you with activities in our beautiful sourrounding. Levi - Finlands no. 1 skiing resort is only 8 km away while the cross country skiing track and the official snow mobile route runs across the premises. The beautiful Lake Munajärvi is across the street and welcomes you in both - summer and winter for activities.

If we could raise your interest and you would like to work with us and our kids, we would be pleased to provide you with more information. You would be part of our truly Lappish hospitality.

Best regards from Köngäs!
