Crystal-clear water – and no stinging jellyfish

The river Otra starts flowing in the mountains around Hovden. With no pollution sources, neither from industry nor farming, it offers good water quality all the way to its outlet in Kristiansand. On warm summer days the water temperatures are quite pleasant, even at a high elevation. And there are absolutely no stinging jellyfish!

From white beaches to smooth rock slopes

The white beaches are located along the river Otra in the Evje and Byglandsfjord area. Further north, in Valle and Bykle, you have a good chance of finding your favourite rock slope, but there are also some more typical beaches here.
