A short drive from the town centre of Lyngdal is the hiking trail Skrelia. It is not very steep and is a relatively short distance from the carpark. From the top of Skreli, you can see down a gradual sloping mountain with a waterfall to the fjords below. There are fresh water bathing areas at the top of the mountain.
Vedefjell is a hiking trail where you see the top of the horizon and the coast all the way from Lindesnes to Farsund. The hike takes approximately one hour and begins at Belland. When you reach the top of the hike there is a sign post with information about bonfires that were lit along the coast to warn of impending dangers.
