Welcome to Setesdal

The Setesdal valley is centrally located in Southern Norway and easily accessible from continental Europe.
The main road, RV9, passes through many villages, and the landscape varies from flat countryside to wild and beautiful mountains. Around every bend, new vistas and activities await you.
In the Setesdal valley you will find living silver handicraft and traditional music. In the countryside or in exhibitions, you can see minerals from "the beginning of time". Iron production from the Viking Age, local building styles, art and handicraft are exhibited in the various museums.
Choose peaceful days relaxing by your cabin or take a swim in the lake or go rafting in the foaming rapids.
