Hi!

Dear helpers, I am looking for a helping hand for about 2 weeks-1 month. It will be negotiable. My hand will be operated either at the end of September or in the beginning of October and it will recover for a couple of months.

I live in a small town in Eastern Finland so this request is suitable for exemple travelers who need an accommodation on their way or just to a person who is nature loving, loving outdoor activities, and wanting to explore a little bit of Finland.

It would be nice if we had some similar kinds of interests together so I would ask you to kindly tell me about yourself and what kind of things you usually love to do. It is a great plus if you are interested in spiritual advancement so that we can share some experiences together. I have my own practice every day where you are very warmly welcome to join me if you like. I will tell you more about it when we get a chance to talk.

My home is strickly vegetarian without fish and eggs and I will not allo... more inside

Hello, I would like to invite you to my place for few weeks in the end of august, beginning of September to help me renovate one apartment in Espoo and maybe do some work at the cottage in Siuntio. Renovating: mostly painting, and what ever you can do. I will also take a professional. In Espoo you could live alone in that empty (furnished) apartment, or at my place, 4 km away, or we can stay partly at the cottage. Espoo apartment is 15 km away from the center of Helsinki, my cottage is 50 km away. Ask more info if you are interested!
After being a helper myself I would like to host a helper at my summer cottage.
Would like to have some help with garden, and with fire wood.
For a helper we could agree about 4 hours work 5 days a week. You could stay few days or few weeks.
Simple food. I don't eat meat, but you can.

My cottage is very primitive, no running water, outside toilet, solar panels for electricity. I do have a sauna. And wifi!

Helpers job is

Hello! We are a thirty-year-old married couple whose firstborn son was born last year in September. We have been entrepreneurs in our dairy farm for just over a year (34 cows, calves, and young cattle, so a little over 60 head to feed everyday) which offers us a living. Before Mikko`s parents retired and we started to hold this farm, we studied (for example, tourism and catering, natural resources and construction), were in paid employment and traveled. We also have 2 dogs and 3 cats, who live inside with us.

Our farm is located in Eastern Finland a small village called Tohmajärvi (fewer than 5000 people) not far from the Russian border. The closest shops are seventeen kilometers away, while Joensuu, the closest bigger city, is 72 km away (nearest airport), the nearest train station is at Kitee about 30 km away. There isn`t really public transportation, but we will take you to places every now and then, if needed.

Here, we spend the days quickly in the work of the far... more inside

Hi! My name is Eki.

I need assistance with daily house works like housekeeping and gardening.

My house is an old border guard building, total with 10 rooms, 3 floors, located close (400 m) to the Russian border in eastern Finland. Currently, this is a private home. Sometimes I have B&B rentals.

I have lived here for the past 19 years, at the moment with a cat, four Alaskan Malamutes sled-dogs (outside 24hrs). The house is grand, with a total of 10 rooms.

This is a very quiet and peaceful place, with the nearest shop located 25 kilometers away. Here you enjoy the silence and nature.

Private room and daily meals (no meat but fish) are provided, WI-FI, sauna everyday if needed, and a free gym is also available in the village nearby.

Looking for people to help us with our very nice sled dogs.
If you are interested in learning about the huskies, their maintaining and working together you might be the right person.
It is not neccesary to have experience with sled dogs but a right attitude. We want our animals to feel loved and correctly handeled. There are many rules in a dog farm and that is important to agree and understand.

We are happy to teach but this is not the most typical "holiday" as the work can be little hard sometimes and you really need to put your hands in to dirt.

Convince us why you would be the right person. Tell us what are you looking for with this experience.

We can offer great experience, learning about huskies, very ecological life in place without electricity (no shower) little cabin to stay in (might be shared), sauna for washing, great activities and if you are lucky also the Northern lights. Can be difficult to be strict vegetarian as conditions are hard and there is not... more inside

An old house by seaside village 14 kilometers from pittoresque small town Porvoo and 63 km from capital Helsinki needs gardnering, wood works, garage painting, kitchen work, cleaning and other domestic help. A small Maltesian dog likes to get walking company in the nearby forest, where you can pick up mushrooms etc.
