For those looking for short break adventures like sea rafting and fishing, wellness and shopping or culture and art, Kragerø has a lot to offer. The coastal islands and skerries lie there just waiting for you to explore. From the top deck of the new ferry you have a panoramic view of it all.

Opportunities for canoeing and fishing are also excellent in the many idyllic lakes in the forests around the town. We have terrain that will challenge the most enthusiastic cyclist and islands that invite to island-hopping. Sea-rafting gives you an unforgettable adrenalin kick which only get worse if you dare to test your nerves on a windy autumn day.

Art and culture have long traditions in Kragerø. The coastal area's unique light  has inspired many artist, among them Edvard Munch when he painted "The Sun" and "History" for the university of Oslo.

Autumn in Kragerø can be dramatic when the Skagerak flexes it's muscles. Winter is a quiet season with beauty all its own. Then spring return, bringing back the sunlight. The flower-covered forest floors on Jomfruland carry a promise of a new summer. Every season has its charm, experience them all.
