The Experience

I run a small Tourist-Huskyfarm with about 40 Alaskan Huskies and offer 3 accommodations for guests all year round. During winter (high season) I need someone who can take care of the hospitality of my guests from all around the world. Means to welcome them, show them around, introduce the dogs, prepare breakfast, sometimes lunch for tours, clean the rooms, make the laundry, transfers to town, shopping. Sometimes also help with the dogs.

It was an unique experience like no other, being able to work with that many dogs, trying many new things such as dog sledding, driving a snowmobile, watching amazing auroras, meeting really nice people (hosts and volunteers) is something that I had never imagined in my life. I've been 2 months living and working there and Per and Sonja were always really kind to me, and I take with me many great memories of them! I would totally recommend this experience! Thank you guys for everything!

I truly had an amazing experience and I'm so sad to leave ! Being here help me reconnect with myself, nature and be confortable around dogs ! I was scared of dogs before doing this trip but I really wanted to do it, I'm glad because now my fear of dogs is gone, and I have all of theses memories that I will keep forever ! I had the chance to experience dog training and auroras ! Sonja (the host partner) is truly a great person ! U can really trust them and they trust u completely. The other volunteer are so nice ! I had so much fun and with the dogs ! 100% recommend this experience Merci
