What do I need to know before retiring in Tromso?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Tromso, they said...

"I would tell them that they should have to like a closed off culture of people. When you walk down the street people do NOT smile or say hello. A man will push you out of the way to get through the door first. If you are lazy and don't have a good work ethic, then this place will be perfect for you. There are plenty of expats that love this place, however its not for us," explained one expat living in Tromso, Norway.

"Before retiring in Tromso, it is important to research the local cost of living, health care facilities and taxes. Tromso is a northern Norwegian city and has cold winter temperatures, so it is necessary to prepare accordingly with appropriate clothing and heating systems. In addition, as Norway is a country with a high cost of living, retirees should ensure that their pension or savings will be sufficient to sustain them in their retirement. As with any location, it is beneficial to familiarise yourself with the local culture and customs, city layout and attractions. Finally, in order to take advantage of all the benefits of living in Tromso, retirees may wish to learn Norwegian," said another expat in Tromso, Norway.
