Where is it?


Arendal is a beautiful town at the South Coast of Norway. The town is surrounded by islands and islets with rocks and beaches, easily reached by ferries or by car. In the town centre there is cinema, theater, museum, and opportunity for shopping and dining. During the summer, the town really comes to life with music festivals, historical festival, and sailboat races. The forrest is nearby, and ideal for hiking.
Our home lies 3 km from down town. You can either go there by bus or by car. Our neighborhood is nice and quiet.
Only 45 min by car is the most popular Zoo and Amusement park in Norway.( In 2010 the park also opened a big water park.
The towns along the South Coast lies like beads on a string. Kristiansand, Lillesand, Grimstad, Tvedestrand and Risør. They also are beautiful towns, with small wooden houses close to the ocean.

Great areas for hiking is nearby.
