Program Details

The volunteer will exchange the work for accommodation and food. There will be someone available to assist you in the kitchen with chopping, boiling ingredients and washing dishes, but you should be responsible for making sure the meals will be ready on time.
Due to our focus on being eco-friendly and sustainable, living conditions are simple but super comfortable, with everything one needs, including wireless Internet access, hot showers, use of fully equipped shared kitchen.
We provide free clean drinking water from the untouched springs of the mountains. Access to our stunning large rock mineral water pool, yoga temple, projection nights and traditional Finnish sauna are some of our extra perks. Transport to town for food shopping will be provided.

Activities & Shift

Six times a week, lunch is served to some of the volunteers and staff (an average of 8 people). We usually cook more at lunch time so there's some food left for dinner on the same day. When we have guests (the number changes a lot, but usually from 2 to 10 people), you should be responsible for their meals too, which might include breakfast and dinner. The breakfast should be served no later than 10 a.m. , lunch until 1 p.m. and dinner no later than 8:30 p.m. The cook is responsible for managing his own time and dividing his daily 6 hours of work to attend this schedule.
You can choose to take one day off a week or four days off a month to explore the surrounding area. We ask for flexibility during times where the owner is absent from the property and suggest that you discuss any plans for taking extended time (more than one day) away from the property with the owner.


Our home is vegetarian and we prepare super lovely healthy nutritious meals.
The person needs to be an animal lover and mainly MUST be a nature lover as we are in the jungle with all mod cons but this is a position for someone who is looking for time out in nature!
