We are awfully sorry, but all pages on our site except this one is in Norwegian. Furthermore: It's not likely that we will ever have the time to translate the others. But if there is anything in particular you want to know, don't hesitate to ask us.

By the way: We do occasionally do things that defy the name of our company :) Please feel free to ask us!
