We are a couple living in the Norwegian forrest. and we have a teen boy living with us part time and one dog and two cats.
Our house is 1 hour outside Oslo in the middle of the norwegian nature. It`s a nice quiet place with a great lake view with 5 minutes to the lake for swimming. Most of the neighbours are summer cabins for people living in the city, spending only weekends and holidays here. There is 15 minutes drive to the city of Spydeberg where we find most of the shops we need and there is also a train station.
We also run a yoga and therapy center in an other location, and are going there to work 3-4 days a week, so you need to be independent and able to be alone when we are not home.
We try our best to live in a conscious and harmonic way and eat mostly organic vegetarian food, complimented by cheese and eggs and wild meat sometimes.
We speak good english and norwegian/swedish and hope you know one of thees languages so we can communicate easily.
DIY and building projects
We are sami people. Sami er the last indigenous peoples in Europe. We originally comes from the north of scandinavia so by staying with us there is a possibility to learn more about our way og life and history.
When you aren't doing tasks you can spend time in nature, sit around the fire in out tipi or go for a swim nearby. Or Catch the bus or train in to Oslo and enjoy the city life.
