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.
