Winter in Kristiansand

In the Kristiansand Region, winter is basically synonymous with "green". But you head inland, a few kilometres away from the coast, you will find snow

However, when the cold does set in and it starts snowing, it is an experience for locals and visitors alike.

Some areas do indeed get a lot of snow in the winter, but you have to head inland, a few kilometres away from the coast, to experience it.

From early January and as long as there is snow in the mountains, there is a ski bus carrying skiing enthusiasts from Kristiansand to the mountains every Saturday morning.

In Kristiansand city centre there is an ice rink which is open during the winter season.
