Help at our lodge in beautiful Finnish Lapland close to Inari village.
We are a couple planning to participate in one of the biggest dog sled race in Finnmark in Finnmarkslopet 2016.
Our dogs are mainly competition dogs participating in different sled-dog races through the year.
While training/preparing our dogs for the competition and organising winter activities for clients, we need help to run the lodging of our guests and help with everything else around the house.
The daily routine will mainly consist of helping with tourists:
- accommodation - check in and out guests
- provide our guests with all kind of information and help
- preparing and serving breakfast, lunch, dinner
- cleaning bedrooms,
- assist in different activities - snowshoeing, Aurora hunting, dog sledding, skijoring
- help in the dog yard - cleaning, feeding

We prefer volunteers age 25 and older. You need to be able to work on your own or as part of a team. It is very important that you are a flexible person as some days there will be long hours. You have to be comfortable working outside too - in darkness and cold. Please be aware that winter in Arctic can be very harsh - temperature can drop down to -40 degrees.
You will have a great opportunity to learn more about life in Arctic, how to survive in nature and of course learn about mushing.
All volunteers need to eat both fish and meat, we serve local food containing this.
