Digital Nomad Life in Norway

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Summary: Norway is a popular destination for digital nomads. The most popular cities for digital nomads in Norway are Oslo, Bergen, and Trondheim. Digital nomads like living in Norway because of its high quality of life, beautiful scenery, and excellent infrastructure. A digital nomad can live on a monthly budget of around $2,000 to $3,000 in Norway. This budget should cover accommodation, food, transportation, and other expenses. The culture of Norway is very relaxed and laid-back. People are friendly and welcoming, and there is a strong sense of community. Norway is also known for its stunning natural beauty, with fjords, mountains, and forests.

How do I meet people in Norway?

When we asked people living in Norway about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded:

"American Women's Club is available, but not really functioning. After trying several churches we have found a Church with an American core to be the friendliest place in town! In southern Norway, (we lived in Oslo for 10 years my husband is Norwegian), the culture is tough to break into. It is almost stereotypical small town closed," remarked one foreigner who made the move to Kristiansand.

"I haven't been able to find an organization, club, etc.There are no expat clubs to welcome you or anything of that sort. My child goes to an International school so I have met parents (from other countries) who have become good friends. Norwegians are not easy to befriend if you don't know them through someone else. and from what I have heard northern Norwegians are not as welcoming as southern, so we have that up hill battle as well. Its been really hard to find anything if you don't speak Norwegian," explained one person living in Tromso, Norway.
