The region of Grenland has a beautiful natural scenery with lakes, woods, and an alluring coastline, offering many opportunities for outdoor activities. For hiking, the Coastal Path in Bamble and the “Ti topper’n” (meaning ten peaks) are popular alternatives, both offering scenic surroundings and many fine viewpoints. If cycling is your thing, the eastern leg of the North Sea Cycle Route runs along the Grenland coast and onwards to Norway’s south coast.

Grenland has an impressive assortment of waterparks and family parks. At Skien fritidspark (Skien’s leisure park), you can visit a pool complex with a 25 metre pool, diving pools, a wave pool and a therapeutic pool. Also in the leisure park you’ll find Klatreparken, one of Norway’s largest outdoor climbing parks with more than 80 different climbs on different trails amongst the trees in the forest

Eventyrfabrikken is Scandinavia’s largest indoor jungle-play facility, designed for children from 1 to 13. The science centre DuVerden, situated in Porsgrunn, is a great voyage of discovery. There are several options for getting to Grenland.
