    Description

    Hi! We are Ingeborg and Luca, Andrés (17), Ailén (15) and Ella and Julian (1,5 years and twins). With us are also Bella (dog) and two cats and normally some chicken and sheep. We live in a very traditional Norwegian rural community surrounded by lakes, rivers and hills. We are a quite international family, and have travelled and lived in several countries and speak English, Spanish, German, Norwegian, Danish, French and Italian. Ingeborg works at the regional university in Bø (close by), and Luca works as a dweller.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are as mentioned a quite international family and we are used to receiving visitors. The area around us is very lovely and former visitors have loved to go hiking, biking, bathing and tenting in the nearby area. We like to spend time in the outside and you will learn quite a lot about nature, yourself and Norwegian rural lifestyle and culture.
