Summer in Arendal

Summer in Arendal is the archipelago, city life, good food and experiences for the whole family. The children will love a dip in the floating pool in the Arendal guest harbour. Combine with a meal at Restaurant Flyt. Take a boat trip in the archipelago, to idyllic Merdø or Tromøya where you will find the activity paradise Hove. Enjoy the view of Arendal city from the glass elevator, and have an ice cream while strolling along Pollen. The whole family will also enjoy themselves at the Science Center and KUBEN. If you choose Arendal as the starting point for your family holiday in Southern Norway this summer, you will have many great experiences for both young and old.
