Holiday in Arendal

Visit Arendal and enjoy the salty fresh sea breeze while exploring our picturesque archipelago by boat, by foot  or bicycle. Go deep-sea fishing, swimming or kayaking and get face to face with nature. 

Take the ferry to beautiful car-free Merdø island and spend a day at the beach with the little café and the museum right next to it. Or how about a sightseeing boat trip around the isle of Hisøy and see how the locals live?

The kids will love the Hove high rope course on Tromøy island or the hours spent at Vitensenteret Sørlandet (the Science Center). When it is time for dinner, you will love the fact that most of the restaurants and pubs are located around the harbor Pollen, in the heart of Arendal.
