When we asked people about diversity in Norway and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"Norway is generally considered an open and tolerant culture, with the population generally accepting of differences. Norwegian people are increasingly diverse, with many different ethnic backgrounds, religions, and cultures living in Norway. The country recognizes and respects various lifestyles, making it an attractive destination for immigrants and expats," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Norway.

"It's very diverse, however very prejudice towards Americans and color of skin. We have a saying amongst expats here "Norwegians are the nicest most rudest prejudice people you will ever meet." I feel lucky to have white skin cause I pass as Norwegian sometimes, but my friends tell me stories that has never happened to me, nor would I want to be treated as they have," commented one expat who made the move to Tromso, Norway.
