An old pirate town, thousands of birds, miles of beaches, and a little piece of America! Discover Farsund and Lista.
In Southern Norway, you’ll find Farsund on the Lista peninsula. Here, the beaches stretch from Lista lighthouse to Lomesanden and are superb for long walks, surfing, and kiting.
The wetlands surrounding Lista lighthouse are also a favourite spot for birds – several hundred species to be exact. Naturally, birdwatchers flock to the area when migratory birds make a pit stop there.
Back in the day, you could spot pirates from the shore, as Farsund is an old pirate town. Now, they arrange the annual Pirate Town festival, with the fun play Kaperspillet and pirate tours for kids.
From street names and restaurants to cars, you’ll also get a taste of America here – especially during The American festival at Vanse.
