    Ich (gebürtige Hamburgerin) und mein Mann (Norweger) wohnen auf der Insel Dønna an der wunderschönen Helgelandsküste in Nordnorwegen. Wir haben 7 Hunde (Alaska Husky) und eine Katze. Da einige unserer Hunde physische Stärke verlangen, bevorzugen wir einen starken Volunteer. Wir möchten nur eine Person aufnehmen. Wir bevorzugen Volunteere, die deutsch sprechen.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers coming to us, can learn Norwegian and German language. We live on an island with a rich history. Our church is more than 800 years, with the largest mausoleum in Northern Europe. Here are several viking graves. This island has long traditions from export trade of fish, animal skins, traditions handcraft and duck down in exchange of import products from other European countries, far East and America. Fishing and fish farming are important activities for some of our inhabitants. Several authors are coming from Dønna too.
