    Description

    We are a couple from Sweden 🇸🇪, living in the peninsular Fosen in Norway since several years. Mia is retired from work and Benny is still working in his own business (selling organic meat). Organic food and organic growing of greens is important for us. In our garden we grow most of the greens we use during a year. —And we only eat meat that is organic. Our small house has a greenhouse (mostly for eating “out” when the wind is blowing) The place is close to the fiord and we like go fishing, from our old wooden rowing boat. We are used to host people from all over the world trough a different websites and love to exchange experiences and get to know new things. The area has a lot of possibilities to hike and join the nature. If you want to go to Trondheim town, the bus stop is right outside the house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We can offer an insight in both Norwegian and Swedish cultures. And you will learn a lot about organic growing, have the possibilities to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and maybe go swimming (if the summer is warm) and fishing. But if the area here isn’t enough you can find yourself in the middle of the city in1,5 hours and join city life and all the possibilities that Trondheim can offer.
