This is a guesthouse situated in Finnish Lapland, about 200km north of the Polar Circle. On the same yard, we also run a foster home for currently 4 teenagers. We offer a large variety of hospitality for any kind of events like school trips, birthday celebration etc.

HELP-EXCHANGE: 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.
As a remuneration for about 6 hours/day, 5 days/week, we offer you your own room and free food. You’re also welcome to use our wifi, our saunas (a wooden one, an electric one, and another wooden one at the lake for the summer), our kota, our music instruments (a guitar, a piano and a drum set), our poolroom etc.
There is also activities of various kinds that you’re welcome to join: art, yoga, meditation, games, horse riding and many other interesting things to do.
And we’ll be very happy to help you with activities in our beautiful surrounding.
You are also welcome to take part of the activities with the children, like going to the Spa Centre, hiking, skiing etc.

WORK: There is many things where your help can be needed: in winter, you can work at the guesthouse (preparing breakfast, cleaning, preparing rooms, welcoming guests, heating up the sauna…), helping with our Christmas event, clear the snow in front of the doors etc.; and in summer, you can do some gardening, construction, painting, reparations etc.
We also have some animals to take care of (a horse, sheep, chicken, rabbits).
At home, engaging with the youngsters as they do their daily routine is nice, like supporting them with learning english or helping in the kitchen with the cooking, or doing some art/craft project with them is always welcome.

ACCOMMODATION: the room where you stay is clean, comfortable and private. You either have your own toilet and own kitchen or you may use the ones in the guesthouse. The guesthouse is warm and relaxing, with tables and chairs, a couch, a TV and wifi.

FOOD: your meals are taken with the family and include traditional Finnish style dishes and also vegetarian based options. There is plenty to choose from and you shall not be hungry. You may also have food items of your own kept in the fridge in your room or in a private box in the guesthouse fridge.

ACTIVITIES & SURROUNDINGS: Our property is surrounded by a vast forest and the beautiful lake Munajärvi that welcomes you for both summer and winter activities (snowshoeing, ice-fishing, canoeing etc.)
Levi (Finland's n°1 skiing resort) is only 8 km away, while the cross country skiing track and the official snowmobile route runs across the premises.
We go almost every day to Levi, and you’ll have many opportunities to see the area and to go to places of great fun and interest (huskies park, sami museum, art galleries, reindeer farm, adventure village, ice castle etc.).

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!
