Lyngdal

From hiking in the mountains and fun at the beach to fishing and Viking history – get ready for an outdoor adventure in Lyngdal.

Lyngdal is located at the very end of the Rosfjord in Southern Norway, an hour west of Kristiansand, and is the perfect setting for outdoor adventures in the region.

Relax and enjoy the ocean breeze at one of the sandy beaches or buckle up for a full day of splashing fun at Sørlandsbadet waterpark. You can also put on your hiking boots and explore the mountains.

Try your fishing luck in the fjord, lakes, or one of Norway’s top salmon rivers, Lynga. At Kvåsfossen salmon centre, you can see salmon swimming upstream in a salmon ladder.

Travel back in time in the historical Tingvatn Fornminnepark and experience how the Vikings lived. See the remains of old stone walls or admire the replica of the famous sword Snartemosverdet.
