Make a Holiday Rental Apartment in Vest-Agder, Norway, Your Home Away From Home

Vest-Agder is a county in the country of Norway. It is actually the southernmost county and has a population of around 160,000 inhabitants. The north of the county is known to be mountainous and therefore far less inhabited; the topography of the land decreases gradually as you come farther south, towards the coast, which lies on the North Sea. The main city within the county is Kristiansand and other towns include Farsund, Mandal and Flekkefjord. As the most southerly point is found within Vest-Agder, this part of Scandinavia has been affectionately named as The Norwegian Riviera. If you choose to spend your holidays in Vest-Agder, with so much to see and do in this part of Norway, there is no way you would ever have a chance to feel bored. Self catering accommodation in Vest-Agder is offered at a particularly high standard and comes equipped with all the mod-cons you could ever need.

Things to Do on Holiday in Vest-Agder, Norway

You have a good choice of things to do on your holidays in Vest-Agder. If you head farther inland, you will reach the more remote and mountainous terrain and this is ideal for people who enjoy full hiking tours, rock climbing and mountain biking. The coast is likely to be the main draw for people on their vacation in the area, however, especially if you travel to Vest-Agder during the main summer months. You will find a good number of excellent beaches here where you can indulge in activities such as swimming, snorkelling, deep-sea diving, sailing and wind surfing.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Vest-Agder, Norway

It will definitely prove to be worth your while hiring a car for the duration of your holidays in Vest-Agder. This way you can go off and explore the county until your heart’s content. You should definitely aim to visit the towns and fishing villages along the coast, plus try to head to the mountainous settlements in the north of the county, which really do offer you a different insight into Norwegian life. The main city to include on your sightseeing itinerary is Kristiansand. This city offers plenty of great shopping opportunities (if a little on the expensive side!), plus popular tourist attractions which include The Kilden Performing Arts Centre, Sorlandets Art Museum and Kristiansand Dyrepark (which is a combined zoo and amusement park).

Weather in Vest-Agder, Norway

Although the coastal area has been given the name of being The Norwegian Riviera, I wouldn’t get too excited if I were you. For your holidays in Vest-Agder, you can expect to experience a cool maritime climate. This means that although the summer months can actually be quite warm – with averages around 20 degrees Celsius – there is still a lot of rain. Winters are much colder and the average temperature in January is a mere 1 degree. There are over 50 inches of precipitation in this part of Norway per year, much of which would fall as snow in winter.

Travel to Vest-Agder, Norway

There is an airport located close to Kristiansand (KRS), but unfortunately there are no flights to the UK. Therefore, Oslo Airport (OSL) will be the closest to the self catering accommodation in Vest-Agder. Norwegian Air Shuttle, Scandinavian Airlines and British Airways operate flights from airports such as London Heathrow (LHR), Manchester (MAN), Edinburgh (EDI) and London Gatwick (LGW). You may then either take a train to Kristiansand or arrange to collect a hired car.
