The Norway guide

Norway is probably one of the best countries in the world to raise kids. Besides the clean air, the safe environment and the plethora of kid-friendly places and activities, the country really makes the welfare of children a priority. Due to the fact that the birth rate keeps falling year after year, the state is giving all kinds of incentives to help parents raise their children; from child care benefits and extended parental leave to parental guidance and family counselling.

Relocation is never easy. Relocating to Norway will take research and planning on your behalf – it is crucial to find the right relocation counselor or removal company for your needs. Here’s what you need to know to get started.

Although scarcely populated, Norway is a huge country. So huge, that most Norwegians would rather hop on a plane than travel the 8 hours it sometimes takes to go from one city to another. That being said, you have quite a few transportation options no matter where you are, and even more in Oslo and the other big cities.

Despite what you may have heard, leisure activities in Norway are not just related to snow and cold weather activities (although, if you’re a ski fan, you won’t be disappointed). The country has a strong music tradition, with festivals taking place throughout the year, and it’s quickly becoming a culinary destination as well.

Norway has the fastest internet speed in the world for mobile download speed. The speed of local mobile and internet providers like Telenor and Telia is even more impressive when taking into consideration the Norwegian landscape, with the mountains and the fjords posing geographical challenges for carriers.
