The Experience

If you can something very well, you can do that here! painting the house, gardening , web design, social media, cooking for the people.... If you feel like you could help in something in particular let me know what you can do! I am a bit bad with technology, so would be good to have people that can take care of my web stuff.

Mexico

I'm thankful, and Kai worries about you but there was this situation with a co-worker that made me feel really bad & uncomfortable and are the last feelings I wanted on my first trip. I think that she was doing an excellent job but it seems it wasn't enought. For me, it was more like a personal problem. I want them to know that we dont have all the privileges that Europe has. Learning English is not priority, and I think it was so unfair the way she was attacked by everyone. I think rules and time should be specified before going there. It was a reminder that you're a guest and nothing more.

It was a great experience. You'll be in a beautiful natural environment (albeit not close to urban facilities, but there's a supermarket approx. 5km away.) with a lot of flowers and plants; relaxed atmosphere in general, host is open an direct, but very kind. The tasks include weeding, gardening, taking care of guests, (maybe preparing breakfast), cutting wood, etc.
Note this was a summer stay. We had a couple of big groups so I also helped with setting up a canoeing trip to a nearby lake. Beautiful nature and TONS of lake to swim in, very close. Bikes available.

One of the best experience in my life! My boyfriend and I went together at Kai's hostel, and helped with housekeeping and taking care of the guests. Kai was very welcoming, and accomodating with the work, and we actually learned a lot. He is very friendly, but also straightforward and explicits about the work he expects from you, which is good ! We went canoing, fishing and berry picking with him, We also had time to explore the national park near by on our own. This place and the environment were amazing we loved it
If you're willing to help and a nature lover, I would highly recommend it !

Better than a camping and than a hostel, on the border of the national park of nuksio, Kai wants to share us the traditions of the country through activities like canoeing, hiking, fishing with the clients, fed by meals around the fire and his advice on him and on the park. He is amateur of trail in all Finland. He was volonteer to help us to organize our 2 weeks, he is very flexible on working hours and we even went to Estonia for 3 days and do some camping in the park! In fact we didn't really realised that we were working there because he did so much for us to feel us like at home.

Wonderful experience! I built a new site for Kai and helped a bit with housekeeping, and in exchange I had free food and my own room (and of course the almighty SAUNA!). Working hours are very flexible, sometimes I also joined activities such as hiking and canoeing. The location is just wonderful for nature lovers. Kai is a good guy that can teach you a lot of nature and survival stuff. The experience went so good that we eventually agreed on prolonging my stay for 10 days more. Highly recommended for everyone (also because Hostels and everyday things in Finland are very expensive).
