The surrounding district of Kragerø and the larger islands are ideal for bicycle tours. The terrain will challenge the most enthusiastic cyclist or suit a quiet family outing. Jomfruland and Skåtøy are perfect for island hopping with bicycles. The landscapes there are flat and easy to cycle on, and you can find places to swim almost everywhere.
The waters around the coastal islands offer superb canoeing. Narrow channels invite you to explore places where only sea birds will disturb you. Or if you are looking for something more demanding, the deep blue sea is right out there off Jomfruland. Opportunities for canoeing and fishing are also excellent in the many idyllic lakes in the forests around town. The Kragerø Hiking Association has cleared a number of trails in and around Kragerø. Most of them lead to a lookout point where you can enjoy views out over the islands.
A short trip by boat will bring you out to the fishing grounds among the islands. Sunrise over the waters off Jomfruland might just find you reeling in the catch of a lifetime. Or you can cruise quieter seas closer to shore with a rod and reel.
Riders will find many opportunities for horse riding – both on the mainland and on the islands. Kragerø's ferries offer cruises in coastal waters where you can enjoy the view from the top deck. Golfers will also find several different and excellent courses. Or the toughest among you can test their nerves sea rafting with rigid inflatable boats (RIBs).
