Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our home, a red wooden detached house, consists of three floors: Main floor with entrance, spacious kitchen and livingroom. Second floor has one bathroom and two bedrooms. Basementfloor has a bedrom with one doublebed, a larger bathroom with laundery facilities. If more beds needen we can arrange mattresses on the floor. The stairs in the house are somewhat steep, so we do not recommend our home for the youngest toddlers. There is a patio with a garden, a barbeque and outdoor watertap. We have two smart TVs, outdoor equipment that you can borrow, like bikes, skiis, ice skates, fishing gear, packrafts, tent etc.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live in the area called Bøler. Eventhough located in the capital and biggest city in Norway, our home has green surroundings situated close to the woods. There are two nearby lakes- perfect for taking a swim early in the morning or before sun sets. There are many popular forest hiking trails nearby, a local farm 10 minutes away and a large sports field.

Our neighbourhood at Bøler is quiet and safe for childeren. Our neighbourhood consists mostly of families. Loud music and parties are very rear. There are two close grocery stores, one is a 2 minute walk, the other 5 minutes away. There is also a larger shopping mall close to the metro station.

City center is reached in 20 minutes by metro, 10 minutes by car. Bøler is 50 minutes from airport by car, and there is a direct airport shuttlebus every hour.

Winter: The skiing opportunities are really good, especially if you enjoy cross country skiing. Strap your skiis on just outside our front door and disappear into the woods. Nøklevann lake is great for beginners in cross country skiing, and also popular for ice skating.
Spring: The warmer weather starts from April. Easter holiday is a calm and peaceful time in Oslo, as many heads for the snowy mountains.
Summer: Enjoy sight-seeing in green downtown, visit the islands in the Oslofjord, relax by the nearby forest lakes, borrow our tent and equipment and go camping.
Fall: Oslo in September/early October is cosy with its crisp air and darker days. Relax by our wood oven at home. Fall is perfect for forest hiking, gathering blueberries and mushrooms in the surrounding forest.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Main attractions nearby are the two forest lakes close to our home. Both great for swimming and packrafting (you can borrow ours, we have two). It is popular to go camping in the forest all year with tent, without tent or with hammocks. In the winter these lakes are dotted with families enjoying skiing, skating, eating meals outside by campfires.

There is a popular outdoor climbing site nearby, called Hauktjern. If you are into climbing - we also recommend Oslo indoor climbing center- 10 minutes by car, 25 minutes walk.

From our house there is a 10 minute walk to the nearest metrostation, which takes you downtown Oslo in just 20 minutes.

By car you can drive to the Oslo fjord beach in 15 minutes. There are many popular beaches by the sea in Oslo, also right in the city centre.
