So close to the nature, nice hiking and brilliant atmosphere, pure bliss. It is a must visit place if you are a nature lover. No fuss and no reservations. You would absolutely enjoy the closeness of mother nature.

Lovely place yet close to the city. You cannot tell that once you get in a. It. Wonderful trails and good hiking. Nice lake and water features. Very quiet and reflective. Lots of viewspionts and small trails to take you to hidden gem areas.

This is a wooded area a few minutes walk just north of the main town. Plenty of different elevations with some easy trails and some steeper that go to around a number of small lakes. Very popular for walking and jogging.

10min from Kvadraturen. A nice get-away to the norwegian forest. Quiet and many possible trails to Walk. Long or short walks. Also a beatyful view over Kristiansand. And if you want, you can take a swim in the lake.

Walk around picturesque hill with ponds and hidden places. Mostly paved trails. Calm and relaxing. You can approach the hill from different sides - study the map thoroughly!

Baneheia is Kristiansands main recreation area. It's a great place to go swimming at summer alone and with friends or family. It is also a very nice place to jog or walk as it stretches for miles through the Norwegian wilderness. There are prepared paths...More

After shotting Ratseputs and Tequila all night long at Charlies Bar, nothing beats taking a jog at the trails of Baneheia. Perfect for a swim in the summer as well! Perfect location almost in the middle of the city center - and it also has...More
