Kristiansand is situated on the Norwegian south coast, offering a city
beach and a vivid summer town life. The most visited attraction in
Norway, the zoo (Dyreparken), is located nearby Kristiansand. Here the
animals are kept in large outdoor space instead of cages. Perhaps we
can even find some gnu's there. For those who prefer an excursion to a
waterfall and Salmon River this can be also arranged. Other options
include concerts, visit to islands, etc.
