Southern-Norway Ski Resorts

Southern Norway, which comprises two counties - Aust-Agder (East-Agder) and Vest-Agder (West-Agder) - is the closest we come to a Norwegian Riviera.

The hallmark of southern Norway is its coast with the grassy holms and skerries that guard the mainland from the harsh Skagerrak. This area has more sunny days per annum than anywhere else in Norway, making it a veritable holiday paradise for Norwegians. Many local communities gain a whole new life when their populations double several times over during the summer. That is when all the vacation homes, hotels and pensions fill up with happy vacationers who come to swim, sail, scuba dive, fish for crab and mackerel and listen to the screams of the seagulls. Others wander inland into the hills, do some mountain climbing or go river rafting.
