Welcome to Cruise Sørlandet!  Your destination for information about Sørlandet.



Southern Norway – or Sørlandet to the Norwegians – is a delightful part of the country.

With no steep mountains and no dramatic fjords, this is a different side of Norway. Here the landscape is relaxed. Along the wonderful coastline hundreds of rocky islands, islets and rocks awash act as a protective shield from the open sea. Inland the forested hills and valleys are gentle. In the towns and villages the mood is friendly and the pace is a little slower.
But do not let our gentle appearance fool you. We may just surprise you with what we have to offer.

Almost on the southernmost tip of Norway, you find the pleasant city of Kristiansand. It was founded in 1641 by the Danish-Norwegian Union king, Christian IV, as a strategic port. Today it is the fifth largest city in Norway with about 90 000 inhabitants, and the number one holiday destination for the domestic market. 

In the heart of the city modern architecture stands shoulder to shoulder with historic buildings. Kristiansand is big enough to give you plenty to do, yet small enough to be thoroughly enjoyed in a day. It is an ideal stop on a cruise itinerary. As strategic as it was for King Christian IV, we still are the gateway to Norway and to the Baltic.

Welcome to Kristiansand and Sørlandet. Let us surprise you!
