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.

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.
There are excellent hiking and biking opportunities in the area. The closest beaches are located at a just 2-3 km walkaway.

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.

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

Please note, at the moment, I cannot take helpers. I will inform when the situation changes.

I live in a large house outside the town Salo, 5 km:s to the town centre. At the moment, I am alone- There is a dog and a cat in the house.

Local bus stops at about half a km away, the helpXers can also use bicycle; there are two in the house

I would welcome 1-2 persons, to help around inside the house in the winter time (cleaning cooking, taking care of the dog and the cat). In summer, there is a lot to do in the garden, fire wood, grass cutting and other garden work, in the fall berry and mushroom picking in the surrounding forest.

The house has normal facilities + a smoke sauna. The helpXers get own room and share the other facilities.

Beautiful and very peaceful place.
