Arbeit

The volunteers will build a snowy obstacle course and tour ice skating track on the Lake Muddus for local people and there might also be other work depending on weather conditions. The host can provide winter overalls and working shoes if needed, but volunteers must be prepared with proper winter clothes (jacket, hat, scarf, woollen socks, gloves etc.), because the work is outdoors even though it can be really cold (average temperature -16 degrees, but it can easily go down to -40 aswell).

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Accommodation will be in dormitory or a cabin with common kitchen, toilets and showers. Volunteers must bring sleeping bags with them. The volunteers will prepare the meals themselves. During free time volunteers can go ice fishing, skiing, snowshoeing, to sauna etc. It is also possible to do some sightseeing around the area e.g. to reindeer farm or Sami museum, but the volunteers have to pay the fees and transport themselves.
