“The rolling forests and countryside are great for hiking, biking and to see the wildlife, like a moose or two,” says Lasse Eidskrem, manager of Visit Setesdal.“The National Bicycle Route No. 3 runs through Setesdal, from Kristiansand to Haukeli, offering a route for leisurely family holiday makers and trained athletes alike. The Otra River and the numerous mountain lakes make fantastic locations for fishing, and fishing cards are available for purchase at the various tourist offices. For those seeking fast-paced thrills, river rafting is also possible on the Otra River at Evje.
