Kari - Kolsås  (Familieferie med barn, July 2020)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Huset var stort og funksjonelt. Veldig kjekt med 4 soverom, 2 bad og godt kjøkken. Stuen er stor og komfortabel. Uteområdet er fint, og det var kjekt for barna å leke på plenen. Det er kort vei ned til den rolige bukta, og vi kunne leie robåt. Koselig for de unge, og gøy at de fikk fisk. Det er et stille og fredfullt område. Man hører trafikken fra Fvei 410, men den er ikke særlig sjenerende.”

“Vi tok taxibåt til Furøya. Den hentet oss i den lille bukta, men man må være presise med info om hentested. Furøya har restaurant der vi spiste deilig lunsj. Tvedestrand og Arendal er overkommelig å kjøre til. Lettere å finne spisested i Arendal. Ellers hadde vi en fin tur til Kalvøysund festning. Anbefaler en tur til disse spennende ruinene. Sør for Kilsund der vi også kunne handle. Nærmeste butikk. Far til eier er nærmeste nabo til feriehuset og er veldig grei og hjelpsom. Har selv en fantastisk hage, og det var også mulig å få salat og kruspersille fra hans grønnsakshage.”

“Die Lage, die Größe, die Ausstattung und die Sauberkeit”
Recommendations for future guests
“Wir haben viele Tagesausflüge gemacht, z. B. nach Tvedestrand, Arendal, Lyngor, Kristiansand und auch Oslo ist gut zu erreichen. Es gibt viele wunderschöne Wanderrouten, die sogar die Kinder lieben und Ausflüge mit dem (Ruder-) Boot sind ein absolutes Highlight.”
Norma - Leipzig  (Urlaub mit größeren Kindern, July 2019)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Der Garten mit einigen Felsen und wunderschönen Blumen, die Wiese .. aber auch die ganze Umgebung vom Haus ist herrlich. Hinter dem Haus geht es direkt auf eine Terrasse, wo man ungestört sitzen kann. Der Blick von der vorderen Seite ist direkt auf die malerische kleine Bucht mit seinen Booten, umgeben von hohen Felsen landschaftlich wunderschön. Das große Ess- und Wohnzimmer sowie die Küche mit ihrem Blick auf die Bucht sind ebenfalls toll. Fußweit entfernt, kann man direkt mit einem gemieteten Boot (vom Vermieter) raus aufs Meer. Das ist großartig und auch besonders für Kinder ein Erlebnis. Das Beste ist die Ruhe und die Natur an diesem Ort.”
Recommendations for future guests
“Ich empfehle ganz klar, soviel wie es geht mit dem Boot zu unternehmen. Das Leben findet dort auf dem Wasser statt. Man findet immer einen Felsen oder einen kleinen Strand, wo man anlegen kann. Wer angeln möchte, sollte nach den "Tiden"/Zeiten bzw. die richtigen Positionen auf dem Wasser schauen, dann hat man die besten Chancen auf einen guten Fang. Ansonsten ist eine Tagesreise in eine nächstgrößere Stadt auch ok, nur man sitzt meist lang im Auto. Daher sollte man lieber die kurze Urlaubszeit genießen und das Boot nutzen.”

Recommendations for future guests
“Ein Besuch in Tvedestrand und Aarendal lohnt. Man sollte versuchen ein Motorboot zu mieten.”
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Größte,Ausstattung,Lage und Ausblick. Der Vermieter ist sehr sehr nett. Ein außerordentlich freundlicher Mensch.”
Markus - bei Hannover  (Urlaub mit Freunden, May 2018)
Recommendations for future guests
“Man liegt hier schon sehr ruhig, es ist alles mit fahren verbunden, aber in der Nähe lohnt auf jeden Fall ein Ausflug nach Arendal nicht nur zum einkaufen. Essen oder kaufen sie dort lecker Fisch bei Fiskebrygga AS am Pollen. Auch das Naes Jernverksmuseum fanden wir sehr interessant. wenn dann unbedingt mit Führung machen, sonst kommt man nicht überall rein und zumindest unsere Führerin war sehr reizend und bemüht mit ihrem englisch so viel wie möglich rüberzubringen. Sonstiges hängt einfach auch von der eigenen Fahrwilligkeit der Leute ab, gerade in Kristiansand gibt es je nach Interesse auch vieles zu sehen außer einer schönen Fußgängerzone und dem nahegelegenen Zoo. Aber auch ein Ausflug an den Telemarkkanal ist schön, dort besonders die Vrangfoss Sluse mit ihren 5 Kammern und insgesamt 36m Höhenmetern unterschied sehenswert.”
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Wir waren nur zu zweit und haben im Grunde nur die obere Etage genutzt, die einfach herrlich ist. / Hier liegen der große Wohn- une Essbereich der sehr stimmig eingerichtet und in dem man sich einfach wohl fühlt. Von hier geht es auch nach hinten auf die Terasse und zu der kleinen Rasenfläche gepflegt und schön ruhig. Vom Esstisch aus hat, zumindest eine Seite vom Tisch einen schönen Blick auf die kleine Bucht am Fjord. / Auch Küche und Bad sind groß und super in Schuß, so das man sich auch hier nicht hetzt sondern gern seine Zeit nimmt.”

About the holiday home

The holiday house is idyllically located by the coast between Arendal and Tvedestrand. There is a dock and a beach by the house where children can tumble about. The house is spacious and fits two families or a big group of friends travelling together. The garden is sheltered and you can relax and enjoy a meal in the yard. Rent a rowing boat if you want to go fishing directly below the house. "Dyreparken" (the zoo), IKEA and Sørlandssenteret (shopping mall) are all 50 minutes from the house.

About the area

About Syd Norge/Sørlandet

Holidays in Southern Norway

Southern Norway's archipelago is made up of islets, small islands and sheltered coves. A distinctive feature of Southern Norway's coastal strip are the characteristic little white towns and villages like Risør, Tvedestrand, Arendal, Grimstad, Lillesand, Mandal, Farsund and Flekkefjord. The towns are very distinctive with their white-painted timber houses, and photogenic cobbled streets and alleyways. Kristiansand is the biggest town in Southern Norway and unofficial capital of the region. It also has the same characteristic white timber houses. The district of Posebyen in the centre of Kristiansand is a clear example that Kristiansand is also typical of the villages and towns of Southern Norway, despite its size.

Southern Norway - more than sun and islands.

But Southern Norway is more than sun, islands and picture-postcard villages. In the land between sea and mountains, you will also find long valleys and fertile uplands. A tidy cultural landscape and extensive forest and heathland areas are the 'hidden secrets' of Southern Norway.

This is where you can find some of the country's best salmon rivers, calm mountain lakes perfect for kayaking trips, mountain hikes with stunning views, and a huge variety of activities to choose from. This part of Southern Norway provides an interesting contrast to the holiday atmosphere of the coast. All you have to do is decide how active you want your holiday to be. High-adrenaline waterfall adventures on steep mountains with exciting rapids? Or quiet as a mouse in your quest for the ultimate encounter with a beaver? A variety of companies in Southern Norway offer activities ranging from elk and beaver safaris, to rafting, mountain climbing, canoeing and kayaking. Both beside the coast and in the mountains are a number of excellent golf courses.

Culture and festivals

World-famous authors and artists like Henrik Ibsen, Knut Hamsun and Gustav Vigeland had connections with Southern Norway. Every year, several theatre and music festivals are held in the region. The Risør Chamber Music Festival has received international acclaim, and is a showcase for world-class musicians. In the galleries and arts and crafts outlets you can find everything from kitsch to provocative contemporary art. Many renowned artists live and work in the region.

Loads for kids:

Southern Norway is the perfect region for children. It has Kristiansand Zoo, where you can find a forest climbing park, aqua park, playgrounds, rafting, heaps of hay for jumping in, and not least exotic animals - enough to keep the kids entertained throughout their holiday. Kristiansand Zoo is one of the most popular attractions in Norway, but Southern Norway also has numerous other theme parks and activity parks. Southern Norway is the perfect region for children, and you don't have far to go between all its numerous highlights. Sun and sand in the summer - although as we all know, the sun doesn't always cooperate. So if the sun goes in or if you're visiting Southern Norway outside the swimming season, there still are plenty of activities to enjoy, no matter what the weather is doing.

Hiking and cycling in Southern Norway

Outside the towns and villages, there tend to be excellent, well-marked trails in stunning natural surroundings. If you're looking for a bigger challenge, there is a huge variety of hiking routes in the forests and mountains. Kristiansand and Oppland Tourist Association have cabins and way-marked trails throughout the mountain region. Many of the trails and paths are also ideal for bikes. Cycle route no. 3, from Kristiansand to Hovden, is suitable for the entire family. It takes you into beautiful natural scenery, with sights and activities all along the way. Cycle route no. 1 runs from Flekkefjord to Risør - 1 past white-painted Southern Norwegian villages and areas of natural beauty. The cycle routes are well signposted and shown on special maps.

Fishing

All along the coast, there is no charge for fishing, and the waters are rich in cod, coalfish, mackerel and many other species. You can fish independently or with local boatmen who know the area.

Winter in a holiday home in Norway

The mountains and downhill ski resorts are much closer than most people think. Only one hour's drive from the centre of Kristiansand, you can find ski slopes. After a longer drive up into Setesdal valley, you arrive in Hovden, one of the country's most popular winter sports centres, around 800 metres above sea level. We also have the famous downhill ski resort of Sirdal, which is a short drive from Egersund or Stavanger. Åseral is the closest winter destination if you're travelling from Kristiansand, only an hour and a half by car, surrounded by spectacular natural scenery - and Brokke is on the way to Hovden. All of the resorts have skiing instructors and ski equipment for hire.

About Norge

Your holiday home in Norway makes holiday dreams come true for nature lovers everywhere!

If you were to fold Norway down the way from its southern tip the North Cape would fall somewhere between Rome and Naples. The most southern, western, northern and eastern points in Norway, despite the long land borders with Sweden, Finland and Russia, all lie on the sea. Better than that even is that the east of Finnmark shares a line of longitude with Istanbul, while the west coast in Bergen shares one with Marseille. If you travel from Norway's south coast to the arctic circle, you have to travel all the way to Kirkenes and then the same distance again. If you'd like to set off along the whole coastline, including fjords and islands, you should plan time and luggage for around 57,000 kilometres of travel.

Norway's exoticism comes from its geographical and topographical profile, from its fascinating nature, which only seems to come in XXL format. The longest and deepest fjord in Europe, Sognefjord, or the largest plateau on the continent, the Hardangervidda. The endless summer days under the midnight sun and the magic of the dancing Northern Lights on the northern winter sky.

The fact that you immediately feel at ease in this completely different "world" is also down to Norwegian society. An environment that is focused on the future but glorifies the past with fervour . Mental gymnastics aren't necessary to understand "Sentrum", "Tradisjon" or "Velkommen". There is already a sense of familiarity when you arrive: If you don't opt for anonymous air travel and instead take one of the ferries through the Kattegat or across the Skagerrak, you will experience an atmostpheric overture: The first signs of land point towards prosperity and civic care: well maintained holiday homes in bright colours; marinas round every corner and in every bay; in the

busy harbour quarters of Oslo, Larvik, Langesund, Kristiansand, Stavanger and Bergen, it's all about the incoming ferries. The signs towards the car exit are as pleasant as the considerate driving. Let the journey to your "hut", the holiday home, begin:

Holiday in Norway

Norwegians love their great nature and freedom beyond all measure. It's no wonder that holidaying in your own holiday home is more than a way of living – it's a way of life. In the most beautiful locations on the banks of the fjords, on the open sea or in the vast mountains, there are several hundred thousand of the most beautiful holiday homes, which the Norwegians, very modestly, call "hytte", a hut. Most are located just a few steps from a hiking trail, a cross-country skiing trail or their own jetty. The main thing is that you are very quickly immersed in nature. The Norwegian magic formula for activities and relaxation in nature is called "friluftsliv", which more or less means life in fresh air. And it is contagious, we promise.

Winter offers up varied and challenging skiing for adults and children, beginners or advanced skiers alike. Even the historical sights and cultural events that have long stood in the shadow of experiences in nature are now attractions for many tourists.

Norway has so much to offer tourists all year round that you may be left wishing you had more time to explore everything.

Holiday in Norway's fjords

Norway is known for its impressive fjords, deep canyons that project up to 200 km inland. The largest fjords in Norway are Hardangerfjord, Sognefjord and Nordfjord. The ice age left its mark here . On the banks of the fjords, impressive mountain chains tower into the heavens. Holiday homes in this location have views that you can only dream of. A holiday in the fjords is certainly an unforgettable experience. Even UNESCO have certified the unique natural beauty of Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord. Seeing fjords on holiday in Norway, exploring them, walking along their banks and visiting the tiny places at the end of many fjords is almost imperative when on holiday in Norway.

Norway holiday tips

You could say that Norway is unique from head to toe and full of places that anyone would love to visit at least once. In any travel guide, you can learn all about the absolute highlights, such as Geirangerfjord, Trolltunga, Preikestolen, cities like Bergen and Trondheim, Lofoten and, of course, North Cape. We have a few extra special Norway holiday tips:

• Among Norway's fjords, you can visit Urnes Stave Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, take a mini-cruise on the ferry from Gudvangen to Kaupanger and take in the summit panorama from Moldes' own mountain.
• In South and East Norway, the Maihaugen open-air museum is certainly worth a visit. You don't want to miss the Peer Gynt Festival in Vinstra either if you are interested in culture, and visit the Forest and Hunting Museum in Elversum if you are a fan of nature.
• In Central and Northern Norway, you can take a mine tour in Røros, travel along Coastal Route 17 and take the cable car in Tromsø up the local mountain to take in the panoramic views across the polar region. And you wouldn't want to miss out on going on a Red King Crab safari either, do you?

Fishing in Norway holiday

Our fishing houses are perfect for a fishing holiday in Norway, complete with high-quality equipment, such as a filleting bench, freezer (min. 60 litres) and boat (included or for hire). What's more, we also offer so called fishing houses+. They're never more than 2 km away from fishing waters, the freezer has at least 200 litres volume and the boat (included or for hire) on site is at least 17 feed long and has 25 hp, with chartplotter, echo sounder and GPS. Fishing on holiday in Norway, that sounds about right! If you think about the beautiful clear water of the sea and the fjords, you can imagine just how many fish feel at home here. Holiday in Norway is varied and can even mean that you get to spend your evening preparing fish that you've caught yourself – the typical Norwegian lifestyle!

Norway holiday with children

Norway is a holiday destination for nature lovers. And they'll of course want to share that with their children too. Who needs amusement parks, hotel entertainment and water parks when you have a huge adventure playground to explore and discover right on the doorstep of your holiday home ? You can go fishing with your children, take kayak tours through the frjords, hike through the fantastic mountain landscape, make campfires with twist bread, go swimming every day, watch animals and so much more! You can make yourself comfortable in your holiday home and live according to your own rhythm, just the way you and your children are used to. A holiday in Norway with children is great – for adults and children!

Norway holiday with a dog

A holiday home break is potentially the best solution that there is for families with a dog. Take your four-legged friend with you on holiday and there's no need to worry about getting a dog sitter or finding a kennel. In Norway, DanCenter has approx. 230 holiday homes available where dogs are most welcome. It's not just you who will love Norway, your dog will too! It's almost as though the unspoilt nature was designed for a holiday with your dog. If you are planning a Norway holiday with your dog, we have the perfect holiday home for you, as well as all the information that you'll need for travelling with your dog.

Weather Norway

Thanks to the Gulf Stream, Norway has a comparatively mild climate for its latitude. Even so, you can experience all 4 seasons in one day in Norway. In short – the weather in Norway varies. In spring, the country springs to life again and the days quickly get much longer. While the plants are blooming in the south, it can still be wintry and cold in the north . Nevertheless, the light entices the inhabitants and visitors back out into nature. In Summer, the sun hardly sets, especially in the North, where there is no sunset for weeks at a time. The weather in Norway at this time of year is mild, warm and comparatively dry. In autumn, the huge forested areas plunge into vibrant colours, the days get shorter again, mushrooms and berries are ready for harvest and it's a great season for lots of outdoor activities, such as hiking. In winter, the weather in Norway brings with it a magical winter wonderland. Many regions can rely on snow, so there are lots of opportunities to take part in winter sports in Norway. In the north, there are a few weeks where the sun doesn't come up, which gives you a good chance of setting your eyes on the Northern Lights . A holiday home break in Norway is worth it at any time of the year, since every season offers something special. Take a look at the weather in Norway here!
