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...
"Norway is an excellent place to meet people with its friendly locals and bustling cities. There are many ways to build relationships with locals, such as joining a club or attending community events. Spending time at cafes or bars is also a great way to make connections with people, as Norwegians are generally very approachable and open to conversation. It's also easy to meet people through online communities, such as Meetup groups or Facebook groups, or by using language exchange websites. Finally, it's often easy to make connections through university or work," commented one expat who made the move to Norway.
"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," remarked another expat in Tromso, Norway.
