Living in North Norway

S/V Morgan’s Cloud alongside in Tromsø, Norway

The two winters that John and I spent aboard our sailboat Morgan’s Cloud above the Arctic Circle in Tromsø, Norway is one of the highlights of our cruising life. Living through the darktime, experiencing Norwegian cultural traditions (especially the culinary ones!), making lifelong friends…it was a magic two years.

So when I came across My Little Norway, a site authored by an Australian woman living on her husband’s family farm in Alta (even further north than Tromsø!), I immediately felt at home. My Little Norway discusses everything from Norwegian food to the cost of living in Norway to Christmas traditions. She even offers Norwegian language lessons.

I highly recommend this site as an introduction to Norwegian culture, traditions and lifestyle—whether you are planning a cruise to Norway or just want to learn more about this wonderful country.
