We are a couple of French people settled in Swedish Lapland. Our village counts less than 30 inhabitants and is reached by a gravel road. The Nearest supermarket is 30km away and is quiet small.
We have build a wilderness camp composed of 4 cabins of 20m2, 1 common house, 2 saunas and 2 dry toilets. Everything in timber.
No running water nor electricity

We are going back to France this summer for about a month in August so we need helpers to come about 1 week before we go to France and to stay the whole month of our travel.
The job is very simple: check few times a day if everything is fine at the camp and at our house which is situated few hundred meters away.

We would like to have between 2 and 3 persons staying here at that time. The accommodation will be split between our house and the camp.

As we go by car, the best would be that you come also by car as we are quiet isolated (30 mins from a little town and little shop).

We Live in a wooden cabin also with no electricty or running water. We have a solar panel to charge phones and computers and we fetch our water in the lake near by.
We have dry toilets and a sauna where we take our shower (rustic but great :)).
We provide you the shampoo, soap, toothpaste and body oil. We use only organic products as we reject evrything in nature.

Our house is surrounded by forest, lakes, hills, swamps and many forest roads. If you like exploring nature, fishing, hiking,,... you are in the right place.
We have fishing rods, bikes and even a canoe. Of course we ask our helpers to be very respectful with the material or it won't be possible anymore to use it.

Lapland is a wonderful place. Summertime is the most lighted time of the year. You will enjoy the midnight sun until about the end of July. And even then,the darkness is very short.

It is also the time to pik up berries in the forest. :)

We love welcoming people to our little paradise. Sharing our way of life is great and for sure the helpers will love it. :)
