You will have many opportunities to dogsled during the extra-long winter and of course play /care for the huskies! This project has excellent opportunities in winter however summer has its own advantages with extra-long warm days and many opportunities to hike, bike and it is a suitable place for wildlife viewing.

When volunteering for more than 4 weeks it is important to keep in mind that the program is not with a registered charity therefore you will be required to apply for a working holiday visa.
