Let the adrenalin flow

Beautiful nature and exciting activities such as rafting, elk safari, salmon fishing and several wonderful campsites.

Marnardal is a wonderful municipality in the north of Mandal, with stunning nature and exciting activities such as rafting, elk safari, salmon fishing and the opportunity to visit a wooden toy factory.

Mandalselva river runs through the entire municipality and is one of Norway's best salmon fishing rivers. There are several excellent fishing spots and walking trails along the river which makes it an ideal place for both anglers and hikers. You find also many serene small lakes where you can catch some fresh water fish or go for a swim.

Norway's only wooden toy factory is right here, in Marnardal. Støa toy factory was founded in 1928 and still maintains the old traditions of the factory when producing their wooden toys. The factory is situated right at the bank of the picturesque Høyevannet lake. Here you can watch a wooden block is turned into a cool toy. Or even try making your own toy if you like!

If you are in the mood for an adrenaline rush and something a little faster paced you should make a stop at Hesså and Adventure Norway. Here you can try the zip line across the river, rafting, abseiling, mountain climbing and much more. If you are not tired after a fun-filled day you can join a safari to look for elk, the king of the forest.

Far from noise and stress lies Høgetveits Naturcamp. Here you can rent a cabin or spend the night in a tent or caravan. Wake up to the sunrise, fresh bread rolls and coffee while the kids play with the animals at the farm. From the campsite you'll have a stunning view of the whole valley. Further south lays Mjåland Camping, a lovely spot to get some sleep. This camping ground is right by the river and is a lovely place to spend the night for fishers searching for salmon.
