Summer in Norway: discover another side of the Nordic country

In addition to traditional houses, the inhabitants of Risør excel in boat-making. They are so good that they even organize an annual wooden boat festival: the Risør trebåtfestival.

Lastly Kristiansand, the southernmost city in Norway, which is known as the merry capital of the southern region. A great place to start discovering Kristiansand is in the historic center of Posebyen, home to one of the largest collections of old and charming white clapboard houses in northern Europe. Posebyen is a small and pleasant urban community and the only thing left after a great fire in the city in the year 1892. Today, its streets are filled with quirky little shops.

Kristiansand also receives the title of “the city of children”. This is because it is home to a destination that Norwegian children very much desire: the Dyreparken Zoo and Amusement Park, which also includes a large water park during the summer!
