From close encounters with the weather and long forest walks to the underwater restaurant “Under” and charming white-painted wooden houses – this region is Southern Norway in a nutshell.
At the southernmost tip of Norway, Lindesnes is the epitome of coastal life. To fully immerse yourself in the elements, you can spend the night in Norway’s oldest lighthouse.
Not only is Lindesnes a certified Sustainable Destination. It has also claimed worldwide fame through the underwater gourmet restaurant Under. Make sure you book a table well in advance for one of the most memorable meals of your life.
From forest walks and bike rides to relaxing beach life, the region offers plenty of activities and nature experiences. The culture buff will also enjoy the many small and quirky museums.
Less than an hour’s drive from Lindesnes lies the city of Mandal. Here, you’ll find the white-painted wooden houses and charming narrow streets that characterize the small towns of Southern Norway.
Mandal is also a place for live music, festivals, food, and, not least the 800-metre long city beach Sjøsanden. Nearby, the beautiful large nature park Furulunden is perfect for kids, with playgrounds both between the trees and in the water.
