We run an internship program for people interested in working with huskies in a semi-professional capacity. In other words, we don`t just take people as volunteers and expect them to poop. Rather, we have a systematic training system in place which is an extension of the system in place for paying clients who want to participate in the husky lifestyle for short periods of time.

Interns learn about and participate in the daily and weekly tasks that need to be completed on the farm. The first week is a bit of a baptism of fire guided by a daily mentor in which there is complete immersion into every aspect of life here.

The degree to which people can participate in the range of roles available on the farm depends on the length of their stay, their expertise coming in, and the level of interest in the various roles.

Duties change with the seasons from one-on-one dog training and construction / maintenance work in the summer, to dog-conditioning and safari preparation work in... more inside

currently not looking for a helper.

-----------Hi! I'm Liisa (25) and I live with my boyfriend Markus (26) in the small city Kalajoki in Finland. We have had one helper before and that experience was so fun that we would like to have another in the beginning of this year 2020. We offer some housework, and pet care because we have one kitten. But mostly we would like to have fun with you, for example outdoor sauna, swimming in The frozen lake, showing Finnish things. You can tell what you would like to explore and ask me anything. You will have your own room. And because Markus works a lot out of town, we would prefer a female helper.

Hi there!

We are a Finnish family living on a historical farm in the Eastern Finland close to Russian border. We are looking for handy helpers to help out with various kinds of tasks on our land.

We run a business in tourism, forestry and agriculture on our farm. We have lakeside cabins that can be rented for spending a holiday and a smoke sauna area for arranging functions in a unique setting. At the moment we are concentrating on ecological tourism at our lakeside area and we want to offer our guests authentic experiences with the minimal effect on the nature.

We have two cats that live in the house with us, but we don't have any other animals of our own. However, in the summertime we have some sheep that we look after. Around our house we have big gardens with apple trees, plum trees, berries and in the summer we grow some vegetables. The fruit, berries and vegetables we preserve for the winter. Our land is next to a lake and our home is surrounded by fields and forests... more inside

Hi traveler! Are you already planning for summer 2020?

My name is Eki and I have a dream that I invite you to help me make.

I've hosted over the past five years, mainly in the summer months, through two different international organizations of volunteers around the world who come here to my place. I have experienced this a brilliant idea for cultural exchange and received a lot. I've been able to meet different kinds of people, learned their way of living and I´ve got more understanding of the world around.

Finally, I also had the opportunity to try volunteering myself. I chose West Africa as my destination. My idea was to spend half of my time being a volunteer in Gambia, half of the time hanging around other small countries in the region, such as Senegal and Guinea-Bissau.

Getting to know the locals, living with the locals is the best when travelling. And this way of travelling is great. Daily budgets can be small because of being able to live with local families. It ... more inside

How about spending winter in Finland? :)

We are a young family of four; Janet (25), my husband Toni (26) and our children Hugo (3) and Doris (1). Also we do have a small dog.
We live on a countryside in Northern Ostrobothnia. The village we live in is really small and surrounded by nature. There are lots of fields, forest and beautiful beaches.

I'm a cook, so I really enjoy cooking and baking on my spare time too. My husband likes to do different sports and go hunting on his spare time.
Usually we just like to spend time as a family, watch movies, go outdoor and go to sauna, and just relax.
We also have a cottage in Kuusamo, where we often spend holidays.


We would hope you to do light housework on weekdays while we work. Like doing dishes, laundry, vacuuming (not everyday)..
Also it would be nice if you would walk the dog, and watch after the kids every now and then so I could do grocery shopping/shower etc.
If you have skills for that, you could do some renovation ... more inside

Hello!
Are you dreaming of a summer in Europe, Finland? We are looking for volonteers working at our property out on the finnish countryside, yet only 30 km from the capital Helsinki. We need volonteers who want to help out with building, painting, working in the garden, household cleaning and helping out while I organize yoga retreats. I am a trained yoga teacher and I can teach you yoga as part of the benefits. We ask you to work 4-6 hours a day, with a possibility to work more some days and instead take days off if you want to visit the capital of Finland, Helsinki that is quite close. We give you accomodation, with a place to sleep and breakfast, lunch and dinner. The property is at a lake where you can paddle with canoes and swim. We hope that you are friendly, take responsibility for your tasks, curious to learn and help out. Please ask any questions and hope to hear from you! Kind regards, Kajsa
