About this assignment

I`m looking for someone with a caring heart, that can look after Nuka and my cozy little cabin. You will have the company of a cuddly and active greenland dog in beautiful surroundings. The greenland dog has a strong mind and can be stubborn at times, but they love humans and are great hiking buddies. Nuka is 9 years, and loves her walks and cuddles. She has a big personality you will fall in love with instantly!

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

- Daily 1-2 hours walks with Nuka, feeding and cuddles.
- Snow shoveling
- Keeping the cabin clean and tidy

If you have some extra time, you are welcome to chop some wood during your stay.

What are the good features of the property and location

The cabin is situated down by the fjord. Here we live close to nature and it´s arctic seasons. Winter nights with dancing aurora lights and long summerdays under the midnight sun. You can go fishing with our little rowing boat, read a book in the hammock, enjoy bonfire nights or relax with a sauna.

There are lots of outdoor activities to be done just outside the door. Hiking, climbing and kayaking are just some of them. The city of Tromsø is a 30 minutes drive away, you can take the bus here or we can discuss the opportunity of borrowing a car. Nearest grocery store is 4 km away.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

Update 22/11, from November 9 the Norwegian goverment has introduced new rules for entry:

- Travelers from red countries must show a certificate on a negative Covid-19 test when entering Norway. The test must have been taken less than 72 hours before entry. Here you can read more about the test and who the requirement applies to.
- Those who do not have a residence or have an employer or client in Norway who can provide a suitable place to stay when entering Norway must stay in a quarantine hotel for the first then days after entry to Norway. It is still possible to visit Norway, but visitors must spend their first ten days at a quarantine hotel and test themselves during their quarantine period.

It is likely that the rules that have now been introduced at some point will change again, but we do not know when this will happen or what new rules may be introduced.

If you're still interessted, please send us a message! I would prefer house sitters who have experience with bigger dogs. The cabin is situated in the artic, where it can be cold, windy and snowy. Be prepared for winter!
