Who we are

  1. We are Tor Sverre and Lisbeth age 45 and 39, a married couple with two children age 10 and 113. We are both professionals, propertmanager and kindergarden assistant. We love the arctic but we enjoy travelling when able to get away, and need some warm klima some times. We have not done a home exchange before but are keen to try what sounds a great way to see another country as a resident.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

About 80m from road where we park the car, optional with snowmobil in winter. Wonderfull view of Advent-valley and the fjord. Midnight sun from mid april to september. Use of snowmobiles from october to mai/june. Quite safe area for polarbear, but if you take longer trips outside Longyear city you should be capable to handle a rifle just in case. Tame reindeer`s and bird`s nesting are common around the cabin.
