    Me and my to daugter (21) live in a big house located in Fannrem, fifty minutes from the city Trondheim. I also have two sons at 25 and 18 years, that come home occasionally. We live in the outskirts of a small town called Orkanger, in a scenic location with small farms and fantastic view over the valley.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You could learn about Norwegian daily life and customs. You could, if interested, learn a bit Norwegian.
    My place is located quite high up on a hill which in summertime means a fantastic view and light. You will find the Norwegian summer to be filled with birds singing and light nights. If you have experience with horses, you can go riding, and the area is perfect for hiking. You can easy go to the city Trondheim by bus and the small City Orkanger is 10 minutes away
