Hålandsheia is one of many hiking areas in Lindesnes. It is located close to Mandal, and has many marked trails that are nice to walk all year round. Hålandsheia around is the longest, and mostly walks on paths in the forest. The trip passes the DNT cabin at Tjortedal and Skogen which is a great kidneywort area in the spring.
At Bruskeland you can go on a slightly longer trip. Remember to bring a fishing rod, hammock and food to grill on the fire. The trail is well marked and it is arranged with a gapahuk, barbecue hut and campfire sites.
A great walk that takes you through the cozy buildings on Nome in Øyslebø and further up the small mountain. Almost on top, there is a fantastic cabin with an outdoor toilet, stove and accommodation. Furthermore, you go up to the top which is 215 masl.
Regardless of the season, the coast is nice to experience up close. From the car park by Lindesnes lighthouse there are several hiking trails in the mountains and light forest, one of them is Fjellstien which takes you around the small lake Sulebatjønna and over Grasdalsheia. Feel free to stop by the lighthouse for a hot cup of coffee and waffle after the trip.
Skjernøya is located in the ocean gap outside Mandal. Feel free to combine the hike around Rossnesvågen with a bike ride around the rest of the island and through the beautiful harbor in Skjernøysund.
