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

Close to the house, short walking distance is the local church and near it also a nice recreational park with a huge monument of an viking king. The monument is 25 meters tall and was a gift from emperor Wilhelm II of Germany in 1913. In Vik there is a boat engine museum, a roller ski stadium, a gym, a nice beach and nice churches including a stave church and a stone church from 12th century. Vik has a nice river, where it is also possible to fish for salmon at certain periods of the year. The fjord is also perfect for fishing, from shore or from a boat.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

It is important to inform you that the Sognefjord property is still not finished renovated. The indoors is quite finished and very classy and nice, but the outside is still under construction. There wont be construction work while you are visiting, but the garden is not a nice place to be at the moment, and the terraces and balconies are still to be built. I hope to finish these things during winter season 2022/23 and will update our profile here when done. All inside is brand new, furnitures included.

I am new to exchanging homes, but I have been a host for AirBnB and for Couch Surfing for many years. I ask you to respect my home(s) as we will do for our partners, and that you leave it as you find it. All beds will be made before you arrive. Please, only use the number of rooms that you need for your group. Before leaving, please wash and dry all towels, sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases from used beds and make the beds ready again. You are also kindly requested to clean floors and dishes. To give water, not drown my plants will also be highly appreciated.

Home exchange is a wonderful way to travel, to meet people and enjoy other cultures. My preference is to travel whenever I can and I am open to all offers at all times, as I am able to do non-simultaneous exchanges. I have two homes, so I am also able to host you in one of them, even if I am not using your home at the same time.
