What should I pack when moving to Tromso?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Tromso to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"Clothing and accessories suited to cold weather; gloves, hat, scarf, warm coat, quality waterproof boots, snow tires for vehicle, extra blankets, space heater, rain gear, snow chains, winter survival kit, extra layers of clothing, essential medicines, sunscreen, insect repellent, water filter, groceries, flashlight and/or candles, matches or lighter for lighting candles/fire, games and activities for entertainment, extra bedding, blankets and pillows, camping supplies if you plan to go outdoors, toiletries and personal items, local currency, guidebooks and maps of the area, laptop, electronics and chargers, camera and cleaning supplies, sturdy furniture and appliances," remarked another expat who made the move to Tromso, Norway.

"First of all, coming from California and moving to the Arctic we figured we needed to dress for extremely cold weather. I would of left all the California Arctic gear at home and waited til I got to Tromso to buy. Bring normal going out clothes, not the mountain gear you would think to wear, people dress nice here. I wish I would of brought US measuring cups/spoons in order to cook american recipes. Cold medicines are just not as strong off the shelf here," explained one expat living in Tromso, Norway.
