What do I need to know before moving to Tromso?

Answer this Question

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

"My advice would be to start looking as soon as possible or have someone help you find a place. If you live on the Island it's easy to get around by bus. If you live in Kvolya or Krokken you may need a car, but homes are cheaper to rent. Norwegians speak English so it's easy to get around and communicate. You can buy jackets, shoes, clothes, etc so no need to bring your whole wardrobe or the Arctic clothing you "think" you might need. Tromso is very beautiful and accommodating to expats (except for the Visa and Norwegian # process)," commented one expat who made the move to Tromso, Norway.

"Tromso is located in the far north of Norway, close to the Arctic Circle, so you should be prepared for cold weather and long, dark winters. Make sure to bring warm clothes and supplies with you, as well as prepare for the transition to the colder climate. Make sure to research about the cost of living and employment opportunities to ensure you can support yourself when you are there. Also important is researching about education and healthcare options. Additionally, take the time to learn some of the language as this will make most aspects of your move and transition much easier. Lastly, get to know the locals and their culture, as this will make you feel more at home and part of the community," remarked another expat in Tromso, Norway.
