Hello!

We are a Finnish family of 6, Antti and Antje, the children Touko 10, Louna 7, Loviisa 5 and Akseli 3 years old. We are slowly re-building an old school to an international art center and our new home.

The sleeping will be either outside in tents or on mattresses inside. We have a kitchen and a sauna in the garden.

Our house is close to the biggest lake of Finland, Saimaa (100m walk) and surrounded by forest. The next bigger city Lappeenranta is around 25 km away and the nearest shop about 8 km. In the free time you can enjoy the lake-side nature: swim, paddle, row, hike or bike.

To join this project, please, write to us and ask for more information!

*****
Unfortunately we can not host Helpx volunteers around all year. But still, there is always a lot of work to do in our renovation project. So if you can live without comfort and if you are skilled carpenter or metal artist we would be glad to have you here any time. Please, contact us!

We are a family farm busy with small scale agriculture, forestry and beekeeping. We're hoping to find help especially for June, as the beginning of summer is always a busy beekeeping season. We would love to host a helper interested or already experienced in beekeeping, but we also appreciate help in gardening, cooking and making firewood. A summer guest with skills in photography would also be most welcome, as we are planning a website for our farm and hope to have new photographs of the farm and its surroundings taken for the site.

We are a family of four: parents and two small daughters. We're looking for a volunteer who genuinely likes to be around small children and who sees a farmstay not only as volunteer work abroad but also as cultural exchange and a chance to get to know new friends.

We can only take one volunteer at a time, or possibly a small family. There is a small and cozy cottage near the house for your accommodation. You're most welcome to have breakfast, lunc... more inside

Hello! :)

We are a Finnish family of five persons. Dad Timo, mum Päivi and youth Ville (21 years), Salla (19 years) and Kaisa (16 years). In our family there also belongs a cat called Miisu and a Samoyed puppy called Mosku. We are an outgoing and active family that loves nature and doing things by ourselves. Salla has been a volunteer worker through Helpx this winter. She stayed in France for a month with her Danish boyfriend and knows how it is to be a helper and what helpers wish from a host family. :)

We are offering a homestay for about two weeks or as fixed for two helpers (a couple or friends) in two totally different places in Finland during June and July depending on the time you would arrive and what you would be interested of. We live in Southern Finland in a town called Hämeenlinna and there is some work you could help us with at our home. We also have a cottage in Inari, Northern Lapland.

Dear helpxer,
If you love nature, walking in the country and spending time outside with the kids then we are the family for you !

We would love to welcome you into our home, family and culture! We live in a beautiful scenic rural part of Central Finland, at less than 1 hour drive North from the university city of Jyvaskyla.

Our kids are lots of fun and have many interests.
Our family is laid back, loving, communicative and supportive. We like to do things together and explore new places as much as we like to stay in and just enjoy each other and some down time.

An well organized public transport allows you to travel throughout the country or just to the neighbouring areas, depending upon your preferences.

We are repairing an old log house about 10 km from the city of Turku and 300 m from the sea in a peacuful garden setting. We would need help in repairing: right now there is going on some pretapistry, carpentry and plumbering work with all cleaning that comes with that. Or if you like working in the garden there is a wild garden with old apple trees etc. waiting for a caring hand...

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children. We have not yet moved to the house, but come to repair it for about 2 days a week and some of our friends may be helping there, too. The conditions in the house are still very basic: there is electrisity and stove in the house and 5 rooms so one of them will be in a livable condition. But there is no running water or plumbing right now so we are cleaning the water with a purificater from a well and using a composting bucket... Garden is great, if you like that.

So if you are interested in that kind of work, and enjoying the summer in a garden setting nea... more inside

I'm a (retired) backpacker (33y old), and I always had a dream of having my own hostel. Finally about a year ago that dream came true. I have a small eco-hostel here in Lapland, in Ylläs area.

I need help mainly with gardening, painting, cleaning and refurbishing furnitures but can teach a lot about working in hostels to the right person.

Accommodation and food provided at the hostel. I'm terrible in the kitchen, so feel free to cook your own meals. Free wi-fi, sauna once a week and all the other facilities are on your use for 5 hours work a day 5 days a week. Sometimes there might be a little bit less things to do and sometimes a bit more.

I was a helper before, so I expect you to be hard-working with a good sense of humour :p
