Independent Textile Artist and Craft Maker/Luthier couple need help running projects and maintaining a large wooden riverside property in North Karelia, Finland.

If you are practical and enjoy making/creating, love the sense of freedom wide wild open spaces give, this could be the place for you :o) Children Welcome!

We are very easy and flexible so no worries... :D

We are further north than Anchorage, Alaska, and further east than Istanbul, Turkey. Clean waters, pure air and endless forests and waterways to explore. On the Finnish border with Russia. White nights in the summer and northern lights in the winter. It is extremely quiet up here in a fairly isolated village.

Hi!

My name is Eki and I have a dream that I invite you to help me make. I need assistance with daily house work, such as housekeeping, gardening, making firewood, small renovating jobs, berry picking, mushroom picking... depending on the season.

Volunteers should be proficient in English, as an important reason for hosting is that I have an opportunity to practice my language skills.
This bohemian house is an old border guarding building, total with 10 rooms, 3 floors, located close (400 m) to the Russian border in Eastern Finland. Currently, this is a private home but I have a small B&B (home accommodation) too. I have lived here for the past 20 years, currently I have a cat and four Alaskan Malamutes sled-dogs (kept outside 24/7).

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

Private room and daily meals (no meat apart from fish) are provided, WI-FI, sauna everyday if needed, an... more inside

We are Katja and Andy, a true Helpx-couple who met 10 years ago in Portugal while doing volunteering through HelpX. Now we are wishing to be hosts to other HelpXers in return.

We spend the Winters in Portugal but in the Summer season we enjoy the life in Finland. The house was built in the 1930´s and in now needing renovations to keep it going. The main project for the coming Summer is to finish off the cladding of the exterior what Andy started last Summer.

We can offer the helper private accommodation in the upstairs of the house. You would get your own bedroom and toilet. The shower, sauna, kitchen etc are downstairs where we live.

This is my home farm, I grew up here, and I'm only just starting. The farm has been out of use for almost 10 years, so all the land is free of synthetic fertilizers, but everything needs to be started, fixed or constructed. I have goats at the moment, but as things progress, I will get more animals. The living quarters are in good shape, and there's plenty of room. I've hosted backpackers via another site last winter, and everyone seem to have enjoyed. This place is in the middle of Lapland, with accordingly short (and hectic) summers. But plenty of wilderness around.

Continued 20.9.2015: Three years in, projects are evolving, new ones arrive. Oiva, my retired father lives here.
Still taking in volunteers and with good experience of them. This has been a working system. The farm is already producing vegetables, eggs, goat milk, meat, etc. but we also gather lots of food straight from the nature, hunt and fish, so we can offer a very local diet for the volunteers. In addition t... more inside
