Moved to england from Norway ten weeks ago. Lived in both Oslo and Bergen but birthplace is up north.
Oslo is ok for veggie stuff but I wasn't vegetarian while living there so I honestly don't know.
Bergen has an ok selection of vegetarian food, but man they are lacking in the vegan options.

Whereabouts do you live in the UK? Indian Summer, my other half, is Norwegian and we've been living in Oxfordshire for about 5 years now.

Cool beans! Must be quite the change of pace from Bergen to East London!

Hello Everyone, I know it has been a while since anyone has posted here. I might be going on a trip to Sweden and Norway in April to visit someone and I have been reading different things on if it is easy or not to find Veggie or Vegan food. Some people online are saying Sweden and Norway are really difficult for vegetarians and people there don't really understand what a vegetarian is? Other people have said the Sweden is very veggie friendly? So I have been really confused. I will be in Stockholm, Malmö, Oslo and possibly Bergen. I don't know any Swedish or Norwegian but I am working on some survival phrases :P

Hi!
I live in Sweden, not that far from Malmö actually Traditionally, it's always been a meat eating society and "husmanskost" (old school Swedish food) usually has meat in it. However, veggies are becoming more and more common. My experience is that most people are open and accepting to vegetarianism.

Most restaurants have vegetarian options, and the few that don't can arrange something if you ask for it specifically. Vegan is harder, many restaurants can arrange that but don't count on it. Here is a list of vegetarian restaurants/cafés in Malmö. The same website has lists for cities all over the world, I suggest you browse around!

All larger grocery stores have things like tofu and quorn, as well as a selection of beans, grains, veggies et.c. Ask the staff, most people here speak English

I don't really know about Norway, but our countries are similar in many respects so hopefully they offer the same or better attitudes!

I hope you will enjoy your stay in Scandinavia!

I get motion sickness really easily and I'm claustrophobic, I'm not afraid of crashing. I know it's safe, I'm just afraid of hitting mad turbulence for an extended period of time and having nausea for hours. I think some liquid courage will help
