To give you an idea of what to expect, here are some rent averages for the most popular cities in Norway.

How safe is Norway? You may be wondering about safety. In general people perceive their personal safety situation in Norway as very safe. People rate the risk of falling victim to petty crime (such as pickpocketing or minor theft) as very low. They consider the chance of being the victim of violent crime (including mugging) very low. And, they rate confidence in the police force and related local authorities as very high.

How safe is Norway for women? Female expats rated the safety situation in Norway as very safe. This is based on the feedback of expat women living in Norway (rather than actual crime statistics). So obviously this can be highly subjective and depends on factors such as where people live.

An amazing community is waiting for you!
