Winter in Arendal

You will find a completely unique tranquility in Arendal in winter. Enjoy the view of the city and archipelago from the sauna in the guest harbour, and go ice skating on the artificial ice rink. The city is also magical in the run-up to Christmas with its Christmas lights and activities for young and old. Do away with Christmas gift shopping in exciting niche shops, and enjoy delicious chocolate at the town's own Willy Wonka. The view from the glass lift is just as fantastic in winter, and if you feel like warming up indoors, you can visit the Science Center or KUBEN. Welcome to Arendal in winter!
