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.
