Description

This project is for those who always wanted to explore the world of dog sledding and the unique way of living the 'bush life! This volunteer abroad project will give you the unique experience to help out a small family run a husky ranch. Dogsled and snow scooter in the winter and hike, bike, fish and wildlife watching in the summer!

Did you ever want to explore the world of dog sledding and the unique way of living the 'bush life'? The projects are located deep in the interiors of British Columbia, The Yukon, and Alberta far away from any town. This ranch is extremely popular with young volunteers from around the globe, wishing to experience time with Siberian Huskies. They are in need of volunteers year-round. The work with the dogs and on the ranch is physically demanding and it is by no means an' easy holiday option'! The minimum duration of stay is 4 weeks with a maximum duration of 12 weeks. Please consider that you will be surrounded by nature & wildlife (no bars and shopping malls here). There is plenty of time to play with the dogs and if you like to bike and hike, there are endless trails!
