  • Profile description
  • I am an outdoor enthusiast from Finland where people are a bit serious but very honest. I grew up in a tiny village in the middle of forest, South Finland. I am willing to learn new things, ready for long days & hard work but would love to have 1-2 days off every week to be able to enjoy the local nature.
    My volunteering experience so far: November 2018 Taking care of two dogs, two cats and two goats as volunteer in a mountain lodge.
    December 2018: Volunteering at a sheep farm. Work included everything from feeding the sheep, packing the wool, cleaning the house, changing car tires, baking bread & cakes.
    February 2019: Horse farm, lots of hard work at horse stable, daily cleaning & feeding. Learned to milk goats which I really enjoyed.

    May 2019: Lambing season at an Icelandic Sheep farm June-July: Various tasks at Greenlandic Reindeerstation August 2019: Painting houses at an Icelandic Farm.
