Arendal in Norway is located on the south coast of Norway. The town was known as the ‘Venice of Scandinavia’ as the town was housed on seven islands. The town was at one time even more important than the capital Oslo (or Christiania as it was then called) as it was a wealthy town with shipping and iron ore mining industries having connections to all important trading centers of the world. Arendal has a multitude of attractions to offer tourists to make their visit worthwhile. The city by itself offers avenues for a leisurely guided walk. One of the chief attractions of a visit to the city in the summers is the sea and the skerries landscape. The harbor area teems with boats, and tourists just lap the idea of a trip on an Arendal Norway offshore boat.
A trip to the town in the summer months is fun time and enjoyment at the idyllic swimming beaches or skerry rocks which are all within easy access. Arendal has many islands which are attractions by themselves. One will also love the inland area with its multitude of forests, mountains, rivers and lakes each offering an attraction of their own. Arendal in Norway offers tourists sightseeing avenues in museums, art galleries, and historical buildings.
