Jomfruland is one of the sunniest places in the country and famous for the beautiful nature, the rolling stone beaches, art exhibitions and the lighthouses. Jomfruland Hovedgård is located at the idyllic north part of the island, by the protected area with rich birds and plant lives. The oak forest is well-known for its beautiful carpet of wood anemones in spring. From the house to the beaches is just a few minutes walk. A 200m-long sand beach is right by the house's jetty and is ideal for small children. The house has a small row boat for free use. There is a fine cycling road along the whole island, and it is possible to rent a bike or a horse. It is not allowed to visitors to drive on the island. You need to park your car in Kragerø or Valle.
