Sørlandsbadet - Indoor water park in Lyngdal

Great fun for the entire family, young and old, at Sørlandsbadet water park in Lyngdal. There is a paddeling pool for toddlers and for the big kids a wave pool with countercurrent canal for a real challenge. If that’s not enough there are two spine-tingling water slides, one with timer.

Adults can enjoy the two whirl pools, one indoors and one on the sunterrace facing the fjord. Sørlandsbadet’s cafe offers an varied menu and healthy meal options. In addition to the water park, Sørlandsbadet has a sports pool, diving tower, whirl pool, hot water pool, plunge pool, gym and both dry and steam sauna.
