Opportunities for activities and cultural experiences across different municipalities in the Tromsø region.
Norwegians highly value their freetime, and therefore it is important to do something else than your job as well. If you never asked yourself, why do you work, then it is time to do so.
In Norway people work to live, have hobbies, spend time with family and friends, travel, and have time they can use as they please. People do not live to work as we find in many other countries. It is good to show results and that you are a good worker, at the same time, it is also important to have a life outside work and to learn to enjoy everything the towns and nature have to offer. It is important to know or to learn how to make a good life for yourself with what the town and the society around has. Volunteering to different organizations or events and joining a reacreation club could be a good activity in your freetime to meet other people and socialize.
