Enjoy a high quality of life – with the perfect work-life balance

Employees in Norway are more satisfied with their working conditions than employees in any other country in Europe. We value work-life balance - "work hard, play hard". And with everything Vestfold & Telemark has to offer, it's easy to understand why.

Great homes at affordable prices

The housing prices in the Vestfold & Telemark region are about 60 % below the housing prices in Oslo.

A great place to raise a family

Norway is in a league of its own when it comes to being family-friendly. Here are just a few of the benefits families enjoy in Norway: 1) Free public schools that more than 95% of children in Norway attend; 2) Tuition-free universities; 3) Subsidised, high-quality childcare; 4) Ten months of paid parental leave

Nature and activities

The Vestfold & Telemark region ranges from a bustling coastline to serene mountains. Whatever your sport and outdoors activity – land or sea – we got you covered.

Culture and food

The cities in our region are located along the coast and major rivers with short distance apart. This creates a unique access to a rich scene of culture, cuisine and night life.

Easy access to Oslo and the world

The infrastructure in our region is ideal. As is the location. Oslo is a short train ride og car drive away. We have ferries taking you to Sweden and Denmark daily. And Torp, our international airport flies you to 34 destinations – 30 of them abroad.
