Make your expat project in Bergen successful

As a picturesque human scale city, Bergen is the ideal place for expatriates who are looking forward to settle away from Oslo and other urban areas. Bounded by fjords, Bergen is a blend of nature and modernism.

By choosing to move there, you will enjoy high salaries, as well as a balance between your personal and professional life, although the cost of living is quite high. The city also attracts foreign students.
