Learning & Fun

United States

I was a farm volunteer. Very secluded. Duties can vary daily. Pick up dog poop, feed dogs, build fires, clean horse poo, fix fences, put together sleds, put harnesses on dogs, help customers etc.. Pros: dog sledding, snow mobile, auras, ice fishing and saunas. Employees are awesome. Satu and Erkee are knowledgeable. Mind blowing scenary. Cons: once season ended experience changed for me. They changed accomodations, kitchen was 100 meters away outside walk negative temp. Getting to town and doing laundry. Monitor own hours. Tips: go in season. Use company clothes, shoes. Have fun!

Villa Lanca was the first work-exchange arrangement I tried, and it couldn't have been better. Satu is an incredible person, she made me feel at home from the moment we met in the airport. Inari is stunning, and by going in the fall the odds that you see the Northern lights are extremely high. Inari is much more than that, though. It is extremely rich in culture and it has some great hikes, too. Concerning the work, Satu never asked me to do anything over the top, she'd usually ask me what I wanted to do and never has she treated me as anyhing less than a friend. If Id go back? No doubt!

Aunque las tareas que resultó desempeñar no eran mucho de mi agrado el trato de los anfitriones y la oportunidad de hospedarse en el precioso pueblo de Inari lo convierten en una experiencia insólita; sobre todo durante la fría nieve del invierno

Villa Lanca is perhaps the quintessential volunteer opportunity: Its perfectly balanced, deeply immersive, and completely enthralling. The hosts treat you like family upon arrival and always make your needs an immediate priority. You’re exposed to work that is varied, engrossing, and FUN! The landscape is otherworldly and utterly breathtaking. This was a superior experience that I will never forget. Villa Lanca should be at the top of every Worldpacker’s list!

Just amazing, Inari is perfect, you can see the midnight sun in the summer, aurora boreal if you have luck, they have a lot of things to do and the family Villa Lanca are so cool. I'm glad to know him. ;)
