Holiday in Grimstad - small town life and active days

Grimstad charms many with its white houses, narrow streets and alleys. In the center you will find cozy niche shops and eateries with something for everyone. Throughout the year there are varied activities and a variety of events for young and old. Enjoy good days on the beach, on the bike, at the museum or in the boat. Maybe the trout bites too?

From sea to inland water, bike paths and idyllic hiking areas. In Grimstad, there are many opportunities for an active holiday. Join M / S Østerøy on a guided tour in Raet National Park, or take a trip with Grimstad's own sailing ship, the schooner Solrik.

Experience the cultural town of Grimstad

Grimstad has been the arena for two important contributions to world literature, and both authors are alive and well in the city to this day. One is playwright Henrik Ibsen, and the other is Nobel Prize-winning novelist Knut Hamsun. Grimstad has a vibrant cultural life, exciting studios and several niche shops with their own workshop in the center.
