Picturesque White House Villages
Few things characterise southern Norway more than the charming, white-painted villages that cover the coast from Risør to Flekkefjord. Enjoy a meal in a restaurant on the pier with stunning views of the boats, and the beach is never far away. Risør is one of the best-preserved wooden towns in Scandinavia and is also known for its many art galleries and active artists. There is a quiet atmosphere in the city. Risør Harbour stretches to the picturesque town square and is a real attraction during the annual Wooden Boat Festival. Tvedestrand also borders the historic harbour of Lyngør. For many, this is the embodiment of the Southern Norwegian idyll and a must to experience for yourself!
