Norwegian Greeting Rules

Here in Norway

You can greet others with a handshake

Or just with "hello"

Or simply avoid eye contact

You should at all time

Avoid hugging

Avoid Kissing

Or any other type of friendly touching

Norwegians are a little bit special

The Social Guidebook to Norway 2: Friendships and Relationships will help you


It will tell you a lot about the un-written social norms in Norway

From how to greet to how you make friends
