    Our family includes Patrycja, Magnus our 3 beautiful girls born 2016, 2019 and 2020. With us lives two cats and a very friendly dog. We are an active family who likes to spend time outside and always has lots of plan and new projects going on. We live in the countryside 10km outside the city of Hamar and 90 km (1 hour by car) from Oslo airport. The best way to get to us is by train to Hamar (55 min) and we will pick you up from there. Hamar is conveniently located next to Norway's biggest lake,Mjøsa. The area is famous for its nature, with hills, forest, the lake and stable climate . 5km from us you will find the region's best tracks for cross country skiing in winter and hiking tracks in the summer. Skis and bike can be borrowed from us.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Patrycja is a cultural anthropologist, and naturally eager to meet new people and cultures. We have both been traveling around Norway and know the different regions. We frequently spend the weekend in the mountains hiking. We speak English, Polish and Norwegian.

    We like to spend time outside all year around. We are active and like making new projects inside and outside of house. Further we are a social family, who enjoy meeting new people and cultures. On our holidays we enjoy traveling to new places. We are the family who avoid "all inclusive holidays", but rather try to discover new places from the locals point of view.
