Hotels and guest houses

There are many hotels to choose from in Southern Norway, most of them in the larger towns. Scattered about the region you will also find a vast selection of hostels and guest houses offering bed & breakfast in pleasant surroundings.

Cabins and apartments

Sørlandet has been Norway's summer holiday paradise for a long time, and a lot of people have cabins and holiday houses here. Many of these are rented out, some privately, but most through larger companies. Apartments are also available at camping grounds, in towns or in holiday villages.

Camping

Sørlandet has a number of high quality camp sites, both along the coast and inland. These normally offer accommodation in cabins in addition to camping in tents, caravans and mobile homes.

Holiday resorts

Larger holiday resorts are quite common in Sørlandet, especially along the coast. These resorts are also suitable for families with children, and are often quite close to the larger towns or villages.

Lighthouse holiday

Spend a night in a lighthouse on the Norwegian Riviera. Sleep in the old quarters of the lighthouse keepers, wake up as the sun warms the smooth rocks and have your breakfast outdoors while watching the waves roll and the seagulls dance in the wind.
