12 Most Important Traits of Norwegian Women Rated 1-10 (+ Overall Score)
But before I get started with sharing where and how to meet Norwegian women, let me tell you a bit about what is it that makes Norwegian females more beautiful than others, and then you can find some pretty useful tips for dating a Norwegian woman.
What Physical Traits Distinguish Norwegian Women from Other Women
1. Physical Appearance
If I was to use just one word, it would definitely be – goddess. It almost perfectly describes girls in Norway.
Norwegian women really look astonishing. They are long-legged pale-skinned blonde-haired blue-eyed goddesses. And you know I am right.
Typical Norwegian girls are beautiful like all Scandinavian girls are. Actually, it is mostly considered that Swedish girls are the most beautiful girls, but a great debate can be made once you compare Swedish and Norwegian chicks.
Especially since they don’t use too much make-up, no sir! They simply believe that make-up should be used just to complement already existing beauty – and thank God for that since too much make-up in their case would be disgracing their natural looks.
Norway is one of the European Union countries as you may know.
But despite being a member of the EU, the health situation in Norway isn’t at its best. But don’t worry, it is far, far from worst.
Girls of Norway take care of themselves. It is not unusual to see them going to the gym or hiking, as it is very popular.
However, it is also not uncommon to see a bit plump, but very pretty Norwegian girls. It is because an unhealthy diet is a big issue there and it can take its toll on them.
But do not fear, as their healthcare is one of the best in the world, and once they realize what is not good for them, they will quickly turn to some healthy habits. And considering typical Norwegian woman body type, they shortly turn into goddesses again.
3. How stylish they are?
You know where Norway is, right? In the north part of the globe.
And you know what is the best way to protect yourself from the cold? Wearing multiple layers of clothes, of course!
With that cleared out, you will meet Norwegian girls with a lot of things on them. Coats, scarves, jackets, blouses, t-shirts and on and on.
But the best thing about it is that it is put together beautifully. They combine clothes very well but don’t often wear dresses or skirts for example. It is much more common to see hot Norwegian girls wearing casual clothes than some dress.
4. Facial beauty
I already spoke about their physical appearance, but it would all be not enough if I didn’t mention their facial beauty.
The first thing you would notice is that they have incredibly clear skin. Like there are no irregularities, no dimples, scars or anything. It appears that they take care of it from their young age.
Their cheekbones are high, and just compliment their small nose and thin lips.
But the cherry on top is definitely their eyes.
One of the Norwegian women stereotypes is that all of them are blonde and that they have blue eyes. And that one is true.
Almost all of them have incredible, sky blue eyes that appear can see right through you. And that is what you will be watching every time once you start dating a Norwegian girl.
Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating
On top of the four physical trait ratings for Norwegian women, we have also created our own additional rating from the Norwegian girls we see on Tinder. We call it the 1,000 Tinder swipe rating. It is extremely accurate and gives a very good overall picture of the single women and how attractive they are.
This is how it works.
We swiped through 1000 different profiles in all of the major cities of Norway and took note of how many beautiful women there are. We jotted down how many 8’s, 9’s and 10’s there are based on their profile pictures. Here is a quick breakdown.
- 0-100 is poor
- 100-200 is OK
- 200-300 is Good
- 300 – 400 Is Incredible
- 400 + is Mindblowing (There are only a few of these)
With a Tinder Plus subscription, you can teleport to anywhere in the world and swipe for yourself. Find out more below In the section about how to meet Norwegian women. Also, make sure to check out my other country guides to see how their Tinder scores compare.
What Different Personality Traits Women Have from Other Women
1. Do they Like Going out and Having Fun?
Now one of the best ways, in general, to go into the waters of international dating is to visit clubs and bars where you can meet local chicks.
As for Norwegian people in general, and I count Norwegian girls, too, they can be party animals.
It is a very vibrant country, and people enjoy going out and having fun.
However, since alcohol is seriously over-priced, you can be invited to some of the local’s home parties. There, with your Norwegian friends, you can pre-drink and prepare for the big party in the club.
You can even expect some single Norwegian girls to be much more straightforward with you since alcohol really tends to loosen them up.
2. Chill Factor
Norwegians are very relaxed people.
They don’t have a lot of big problems in their life and they truly believe that there is a solution to everything.
So if you manage to upset your Norwegian girlfriend, you must have done something really bad.
I mean, I have witnessed a situation where this guy was caught cheating on his girlfriend. She was hurt, you could see it in her look.
But she didn’t even blink when she was leaving. There was no yelling, no fighting, she listened to him trying to explain himself, said that it was over and just went home. Making a scene? No way.
She knew who she was and kept her pride high.
I was talking to my girlfriend about the situation I told you, and she very deeply explained to me what does loyalty mean to them.
When it comes to dating Norwegian girls, loyalty comes before everything. Why?
Norway as a country is especially proud of the freedom it gives to its people but also the equality between the people.
All Norwegians are equal in every aspect of their lives, whether it be education, career, family or love. And when it comes to single Norwegian women, they give you loyalty in the first place.
It is exactly because they are given freedom and equality, so they know that they chose you as much as you chose them.
Also, they expect it from you for the very same reasons.
4. Good as Mothers
This specific character trait can be very subjective. So let me explain it a bit deeper.
Once you start dating a Norwegian woman, you start really getting to know her. You see that she is passionate about her career.
It isn’t uncommon to spend more hours in the office in order to advance in her workplace.
Also, they like spending time outdoors and maternity and parental leave aren’t too long.
Now I don’t want you to get me wrong – they are not bad mothers. They do know how to raise a child and they do it very well.
But considering all the before mentioned stuff, the time they spend with their kids is not that long, especially after the kids turn three.
They much more depend on babysitters, and even after work, they can choose to spend time walking in nature or something like that.
5. Meeting and Talking to New People
Now one of the things you might find difficult is exactly hooking up with hot Norwegian women. Why, you ask?
Because they tend to be socially uncomfortable with people they didn’t meet before.
They are a little reserved when it comes to communicating with new people, especially Norwegian girls.
But there is a solution!
Norwegian guys are a bit less restrained, and if you have some pals over there, you can ask them to introduce you to some of their Norwegian friends, both male and female.
If even that doesn’t work… alcohol.
I already said that they like to gather around at house parties before going out. That is your chance to get the liquor into yourselves and relax that Norwegian chick you have been checking out.
They become much more social once they are even a little drunk, and might open up to you even more than you know.
6. Are they Romantic
Ahhh, those cold Norway nights…
One of the good things about the countries in the far North is that there are a lot of opportunities to go out on a romantic date.
And it seems that Norwegians know them all, and then some.
Dating Norwegian women can truly be an unforgettable experience. They are prepared to take care of you rather well.
Don’t get surprised if she called you at her place and prepared you a candle-lighted dinner with amazing traditional food. After that, you might find yourselves watching a romantic comedy together and just cuddling before going to the bedroom.
Or, if you are in the northern parts of the country, you can go and together with her witness the amazing Aurora Borealis. She would love it.
Also, small gifts for you in a sense of scarves, gloves, cufflinks or just anything should not surprise you. If she loves you, she will randomly show it to you, but also expect it back from you.
Small tokens of love will get you very, very far.
You already know it is quite cold in Norway. You know that they, and you should too, dress accordingly.
But did you know that with all those layers of clothing come very intense and fiery foreplay?
Yes, it does!
In those long and cold winter nights, there is no better way to keep yourselves warm. And what are Norwegian women like in bed?
All I can say is that no matter where you are, you will not get cold. They can unleash their fiery side and simply consume you in passion.
Most of the guys will like this a lot because Norwegian girls in bed like to be dominated.
Not like BDSM, or at least I didn’t have the opportunity to try it with them. What I meant was that Norwegian women in bed like for their men to know what he is doing.
So as long as you give it to them, they will most certainly give it back to you. 😉
8. Gringo Card – How Likely are They to Date Foreigners
When it comes to international dating from the side of Norwegian women, the situation is not the best.
I mentioned that they are a little reserved when it comes to meeting new people, and with that foreigners. But things are not all black.
Norwegian girls are very liberal in the first place. So it will not be an issue that you are a foreigner.
All you have to do is just jump over that barrier of the first contact and get her to know you a little better.
Once you have done it, you can much easier build her trust, and you are already half-way there. That is also a great way for you to understand Norwegian dating culture yourself!

Though they are awesome and outgoing yet they are far from perfect.

Where to Meet Norwegian Women
Okay, so I’ve shared with you some really valuable details about Norwegians, and you should know by now what are Norwegian women like in relationships, what do they value in men and a little bit of how to meet a Norwegian girl.
But, I feel there is more to it, so now I will focus exclusively on where to meet Norwegian girls and how to make them fall for you.
As for the “where” part, I will separate it into two sections – one will be for online dating and meeting Norwegian chicks; and the other about let’s say travelers guide for meeting Norwegian girls.
I will go thoroughly through the three biggest cities in Norway: Oslo, Bergen, and Trondheim; and try to differentiate them by the types of places you can go out and meet women.
Tinder is surely one of the most popular dating app in the world.
It is very simple to use, and a lot of people have found what they were looking for using it.
In the last couple of years, Tinder has become very popular in Norway. I think there is not a lot of people that don’t use it. And since it is also very popular in the U.S, you shouldn’t have any problems with it.
So if you are an American man looking for Norwegian women online, Tinder is a great option for you.
One of the reasons why Tinder in Norway is so popular is because traditional Norwegian dating culture has changed a bit in the past couple of years.
In the bigger cities, there isn’t so much dating anymore. Even Norwegians say so.
Younger Norwegians are much more interested in hookups than they were before, and very often that is all they want. Maybe it is because of the social awkwardness…
When they are online though, they are very straight forward about what they want, so if you were used to saying one thing, and thinking about something else… it won’t work once you meet a Norwegian woman.
You need to learn to be as direct as possible, even if it is only sex, and it will get you what you want.
So if you are looking for casual hookups, big cities and Tinder are the best combinations you can get in Norway.
Other online dating sites
Norway is one of the most prosperous and modern countries in the world. People use technology often and are aware that they need to do it if they want to keep up with the world and stay trendy.
That is one of the reasons why so many of them are on dating apps.
It is much easier to use it than on your computer. Everything you can do on your cell phone is much more convenient than it is on the computer. And that is one of the reasons Tinder is so popular, and online dating sites are falling behind.
However, maybe you are the person who just likes to explore all the platforms before starting something with someone.
One of the most popular dating sites in Norway is ww.sukker.no.
It is the best dating site in Norway. When translating it to English, it means sugar, so you can assume what can you find there.
It has over 400,000 members and more than twenty thousand people are using it every day. The gender balance is balanced J so you won’t be seeing only guys there.
It is Norwegians who created the website and platform, and they are very proud of it.
Signing up is very easy, just choose your username and password, enter the details such as your full name, gender, address, and email. After you have confirmed your email, you answer some questions about yourself so that they can know who suits you best.
It is a very good feature in my opinion as you are required to answer the questions, so you and everyone else know what to expect from the people they make contact with.
The second dating site I recommend is www.moteplassen.com.
Its member database is even bigger than Sukker, with more than half a million members.
The website is around 16 years old – but don’t worry, it is regularly updated and looks fresh for everyone, and all of the many features work like a charm.
Signing up on Moteplassen is even easier than on Sukker. You need to enter your age, gender, username, password, and email. After that, you need to enter some primary information about yourself (education, location, etc.) and in the end, upload your photo.
I recommend you do it since you can’t see other people’s photos until you upload your own.
Traveler’s Guide for Meeting Norwegian Women
But maybe you are a guy who prefers a challenge. You just don’t like online dating stuff, and you very much like to approach your lady in person.
So especially for you, I will cover this traveler’s guide on where to meet a Norwegian woman in the three biggest cities in Norway:
Oslo is the capital of Norway, but other than that, it is the biggest, most populated and economic center of Norway.
Everything that you wish for in Norway – you can find it there.
It is considered a global city – recognized by the whole world by its economic potential and one of the most important economic parts globally.
Oslo is also a very popular tourist destination in Europe with a lot of tourists pouring in each year, making it a very vibrant, metropolitan city.
Being ranked as the best city to live in when considering life quality only brings more and more people each year, and not only tourists but also immigrants.
However, it has its downsides. Oslo is not only ranked top in the best lists in the world but also in those not so positive.
Oslo is considered the second most expensive city to live in in the world, with Tokyo being the first one. That makes it the most expensive city in Europe.
For example, a beer in a bar is between 10 and 15 euros. One beer.
Now you understand why most Norwegians choose to pre-drink and than go out, hm?
But, overall Oslo is a beautiful city and a great destination for everyone, and locals are used to foreigners – that means girls are used to foreigners, too.
There is a bunch of places where you can meet sexy Norwegian women, for anything you are interested in that night.
If you are interested in just casual hookups, other than Tinder, I recommend going out to the night clubs.
The busiest area of Oslo where all the necessary action happens is Grunerlokka. It is a part of the city that never sleeps and where you can find a lot of venues to have fun. It is also an area where local artist showcases their skills, so you will see a lot of amazing graffiti on the buildings around you.
There is more than a couple of great bars where you can try your luck with girls, such as:
- Bortenfor – it has a cozy outdoor patio right next to the river where you can meet locals and grab a beer or two
- Magic Ice Bar – it is a bar where you can try amazing Norwegian wines. It is also weirdly decorated with a lot of ice sculptures inside – the temperature inside because of it can go as low as minus six degrees Celsius
- Den Gamle Skobutikken – amazing rooftop bar
If you are more of a party animal like most of the Norwegian girls are, you must check out these places:
- Jager – it is one of the best clubs in the city with an awesome and friendly local crowd. It has a huge dance floor in the basement where you can find yourself a Norwegian chick. A tip: when you drink together with your Norwegian friends, don’t forget to yell SKAL! – it is Norwegian for “cheers”
- Sratos – this place makes epic rooftop parties. It is packed every weekend night and has enough place where you can approach girls, and enjoy good EDM music.
- Kulturhuset – it is located right next to Sratos. It is an incredible social venue with three stories of multiple bars, foosball and table tennis tables, and of course multiple dance floors.
- Lawo – it is an outdoor lounge you need to check out if you are going in summer. If you are there, don’t forget to try traditional Norwegian shots Akvavit.
- NOX/Sollihagen – simply an epic nightclub.
- The Villa – if you are an electro and techno guy, this place is great for you
All the bars and clubs close at 3 AM according to the local Norwegian law, so make sure you don’t waste any time you spend there.
Another great thing about Oslo is that it has a well organized public transportation system. You can choose if you want to go with a metro, tramway or bus, and don’t need to spend money on a taxi. Of course, Uber is always an option.
Bergen is the second-largest city in Norway.
A few things about it, it is known as the “gateway to the fjords”. What is a fjord? It is a narrow but very deep and long area of water, usually sea that goes into the land. On three out of four sides of a fjord, there is a steep land, so it makes an amazing nature scene to see, and I recommend you visit a couple of it while there.
Also, Bergen is considered a European city of culture and UNESCO cultural site/UNESCO heritage city, because of several buildings that date back like a millennium or so.
But enough of the places you can visit, let me tell you about places you can easily meet Norwegian girls.
As for the bars, there are many more bars and clubs in Bergen than there are discos and dance clubs. The bar scene is much more alive, and here are some bars you must visit:
- BarBarista – during the day it’s just a regular café (with amazing waffles), but in the night, especially in the weekends, it becomes a bar with a DJ where you can get drunk and meet locals
- No Stress – five years ago it was awarded the best bar in all Norway, and it is amazing. They serve great cocktails and they say they only use fresh and proper ingredients. If you are a cocktail guy, or you simply want to try great cocktails, No Stress is the place for you.
- Magic Ice Bar Bergen – as I said with the Magic Ice Bar in Oslo, it is an amazing and interesting place to go if you like to drink wines. The atmosphere is freezing. J
- Apollon Platebar – it is good, but a rather small bar. Uniquely, it has its own record store, but also a lot of imported beers, as well as domestic beers you can try. If you are looking for local beers to start or finish your night, this is a place for you.
- Dyvekes Vinkjeller – it is a very old, traditional place. I think it was opened in the 1300s and it gives you that medieval vibe.
So once you have started your night in some of the above-mentioned bars, I recommend you go on to one of these three clubs and have fun:
- Klubb KOK – open every Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday, and they often combine national and international hits in a cool manner. DJs are amazing and it is not uncommon that some of the famous names appear, such as Stormzy, Sebastion Ingrosso, D Double E, Ralph Myerz and others. They close at 3:30.
- Bryggen Nightclub – they open up at 10 PM and close at 3 AM, but give you more than enough time to find yourself a lady on the biggest dancefloor in Bergen.
- Kava Roofgarden – a great place you can party on the rooftop
Trondheim is the third biggest and most populous city in Norway. It is located in the central part of the country and lies on the shore of Trondheim Fjord.
It is a city with more than two hundred thousand people living in it and is also a beautiful city tourists like to go to and visit.
As for the places you can meet local chicks, there are a couple of them, such as:
- Den Gode Nabo – a bar right next to the river that goes through Trondheim, it is a good place for hanging out but also having a beer… or ten. On the weekends it is open until 1:30 AM.
- Trondheim Camping – a great bar you can play mini-golf in. It is open every day until midnight, except on Friday and Saturday when it works until 2 AM.
- Macbeth Whisky & Aquavit Bar – if you are a whiskey guy, this is a place for you. It offers a lot of options.
Pros and Cons of Dating a Norwegian Woman
Like always, before I make any decision in life, I like to make a pros and cons list of what are Norwegian girls like in relationships:
1. Norwegian women are honest and direct
You will not have any problems understanding what Norway women want. Their philosophy is that when you want something, the way to get it is to directly go for it. And that’s what they do. They will tell you directly what is on their minds and you will together come up with a solution for everything.
2. Intercourse is great
Yes, it is.
They are wild and they are no afraid to try new things. It will make your entire sexual life different and much more interesting, that you will wish not to have sex with girls from other countries.
3. Norwegian girls are hot
In general, all Scandinavian people are. It’s in their genes.
They are all tall and have a muscular body. When it comes to Norwegian girls, of course, they are not all bodybuilders, but you can see that they don’t need much to get their body in shape and have curves right where they need to be.
4. Women of Norway are very loyal
It is a great characteristic of Norwegian women. They are loyal to the bone.
They are aware of who they are and what they were fighting for and in that time they realized their full potential and what can they achieve in life.
So they think that, if they are with you, they chose you as much as you chose them, so why would they be cheating on you? It would only make them look bad.
5. You are equal
It is all about gender equality in Norway. And that’s how it should be.
So whatever men do, women can do, too. There is no option where you pay the bill on your dinner date or drinks. It is okay for her to be on a better career path than you are.
That’s just the way it is, and it works awesome.
1. They are sometimes really hard to get
Norwegian women are a little socially awkward at first. It is not unusual for her to be very quiet once you approach her, and it takes some patience to get her to be with you.
2. They expect the same level of loyalty
This one is expected, right? Since they are loyal as loyalty goes, and equality is everywhere in Norway, you need to be as loyal as she is if you want to keep her. If not, well… you might be single again.
How to Make a Norwegian Woman Fall in Love with You
We have come to the Norwegian girl dating tips part! So, how are you going to make her fall in love with you:
1. Be confident and make the first move
Women all over the world love it!
Even though you are equal, what Norwegian women like is a confident (but not over-confident) guy who knows how to speak to ladies.
2. Be persistent
She will be a bit shy at first, of course. But be persistent. Make jokes. Play her game.
Ask her out to go out for a walk. Or go grab a coffee. That is an ideal first date in Norway, and be sure to use it.
3. Have some style
They are stylish so they expect you to dress well, too. That doesn’t mean you need to spend some extraordinary amount of money on clothes, no!
Just learn how to combine colors, and always dress for the occasion. You can’t go to some formal event wearing white socks… that just doesn’t work!
4. Be direct
Be direct about things.
You don’t like something? Tell her.
You start to develop feelings for her? Tell her!
They believe that getting what you want can only be achieved by working on it, and by saying it you are already half-way there.
5. Show that you respect gender equality
The most important part. Chivalry is dead in Norway and that is because women have achieved a great level of equality.
That doesn’t mean opening the door for her won’t help you, it will and it will make her feel special, but don’t push it too far as she might think you don’t respect her as much as she would want to be respected.
