Welcome to the land of the midnight sun and Northern lights!
Come and live with us in the Arctic!
We are Denise and Diego, a German-Italian couple that loves Tromsø for its beautiful nature and small community.
We just got an addition to our little family: baby Dylan.
Our place is located beautifully on a fjord with sea view and mountains around. It's the perfect place to see Northern lights without light pollution. Tromsø is the biggest town in the north and has lots of cultural activities like concerts, art exhibitions, reindeer races in February, the international film festival in January, the midnight sun marathon in June, trail running competitions in August, skitouring competitions in March, and much more..
We live in a rural area but only 20-30 minutes away from Tromsø. There's regular busses going into the city throughout the day (except Sundays).

We can speak and teach German, Italian, Norwegian and Japanese. And we can share vegetarian recipes.

This host offers accommodation and payment.
We need help with daily tasks such as cooking, groceries and baby sitting. It's easy work mostly in the mornings so you get time to explore Tromsø.
Depending on the season, we might need help with gardening, or with cleaning the snow.
