Visit diverse communities, explore lush nature, and go on a sailing trip around the scenic shores of Southern Norway. Life here is largely focused on the coast, and many of the region’s settlements are located by the sea. Larger cities like Kristiansand and Arendal are the area's cultural and economic centers, offering all the amenities of urban surroundings, with plenty of sightseeing and entertainment opportunities. Other coastal settlements are mainly peaceful port towns, where life goes at slower pace. Further inland, you can find a selection of idyllic villages, where many of the locals still practice traditional crafts, and where you can visit different historical attractions. This area is a prime destination for spending time outdoors, fishing in lakes and rivers, hiking, and enjoying winter sports. Find what you're looking for from your Southern Norway holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Norway day trip planner.
