More about Kristiansand

Why go to Kristiansand?

Pros: Enjoy a seafood lunch in town, or take a tour to the zoo, mineral park or nearby villages.

Cons: There's not all that much to see on your own in town, and restaurant prices in Norway are high.

Bottom Line: A cute place for a wander, but unlikely to be the highlight of your Norway cruise.
