Hot summer vibes inSouthern Norway

The secret's out!

Every year, Norwegians flock to the country’s ultimate summer destination: Southern Norway.

A true paradise for love birds...

...and for making new friends. Doing things you never imagined doing before...

… or just doing nothing.

Southern Norway is simply about enjoying the moment.

Go people watching (or see your beloved one in a new light) in one of many charming, coastal towns like Risør, Grimstad, Mandal...

...or swim in a heated pool in the quaint town of Arendal.

Or just relax on one of the many beautiful beaches in the region.

Want to surf? You'll find the best waves at Lista, in the southwest.

Up for some seriously energetic summer fun?

Head to Kristiansand, the charming capital of the south – and home to Scandinavia's biggest music and beach festival – Palmesus.

We've also got some local insider tips for you!

Or find your very own private hideaway on an island, skerry or secluded cove.

There are thousands of idyllic cabins for rent – where the coast looks just like this!

Speaking of idyllic cabins... Why not spend the night in the treetops?

Make your visit unforgettable by staying in a unique treehouse, glamping tent, lighthouse, or charming hotel full of atmosphere.

...or get your adrenaline racing with a splash!

Inland Evje is a mecca for rafting, climbing and lots of other amazing outdoor activities.

Sustain your good vibes with some delicious food.

Buy fresh shrimp from local fishermen...

..or have it served on a platter with an abundance of freshly caught local seafood delicacies.

Bon appetit!
