The Experience

I run a Husky farm with about 40 Alaskan Huskies and offer 3 accommodations for guests. During high season (November - April) I need someone who can take care of the hospitality of my guests. 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. I also need help with taking care of the dogs and help with the tours.

My two months at Husky Dreams were an incredible and unique experience. I loved to be surrounded by beautiful landscapes, northen lights and dogs. The dogs have all such great and unique personalities. You also learn a lot about them, the dogsledding and the work around it. The work can be hard during the high seasons but if you're willing to learn, work hard and are flexible with the working hours it will be very rewarding. I would recommend this experience and I hope to come back soon!

My month in Husky dreams was an amazing experience, I learn a lot about dogs, sledding and snowmobiles and at the same time being surrounded by incredible landscapes, auroras boreales, lovely dogs and amazing people who make me feel like home. The work can be hard during the high season but is balanced with quiet days that allow you to rest an enjoy the places around. I fully recommend this experience which has been one of the best of my trip, I hope comeback some day :)

Spent a bit more than a month at Husky Dreams, and it was an amazing time full of unforgettable memories of Dog sledding, Aurora watching and getting stuck with snowmobiles! This experience is one of the best i've had on all my travels, from the variety of the work you do, the people and of course the dogs, it's good times all round. I was there during the busy season which meant some very busy days, but these were balanced out with chill ones here and there, just be prepared to get to work when needed and you'll have a great time. I recommend you try it, this is a one in a million experience!

An incredible experience, many dreams come true, sometimes a lot of work, other calmer days, but every day there is something to do, sometimes lack of coordination and lack of faith in communication but nothing terrible, everything is for the dogs, I will miss each of them very much and Also to the work team, very good relationship with the other volunteers, greetings to the “Broken Dreams Team” much encouragement and luck
