The strong relationship between the UK and Norway is steeped in history, dating back to the days when Norse Vikings were rather unwelcome visitors to British shores. The ties between the two nations are clearly far warmer these days. Not least as many British people have travelled back in the opposite direction! There are believed to be over 10,000 British people living and working in Norway, particularly in the country’s globally significant energy industries. Norway produces more oil and natural gas per-capita than anywhere in the world (except the Middle East).
It isn't just work that inspires people to live in Norway either. The country has a great standard of living and attractive health properties. These have combined to earn it the reputation of being “the most liveable place on earth”, based on a Human Development Index from the United Nations. Such are the ties between the two countries that parcels from the UK to Norway are a daily occurrence, in substantial numbers. Goods, gifts and other items are safely delivered by land or sea year round.
