Road trips in Norway from Grimstad
Many pretty villages with clapboard houses in blue, white, red, ochre and blue are dotted along the coastal route of Sorlandet, Norway’s Riviera. A popular nearby stop is Kristiansand, where the ferry comes in from Denmark, and there is a regional airport nearby. Hove is another town worth a visit with a good campground.
This is the venue for one of Norway’s most popular summer music festivals where the likes of Florence and the Machine have belted out their hits. Festivals are a way of life in Norway, especially on this Southern Coast - over summer there is a horse, Viking and even an accordion festival. In nearby Arendal, there is a slow food one.
The nearest international airport is Aalborg Airport, quite a haul back to central Norway, about 100km away.
Oslo, the capital city is just a few hours away and worth a visit. In case you have some time to spare, you could also head to Sweden and visit Stockholm.

Driving tips in Norway:
In remote parts of Norway, gas stations can be more than 100km apart, and not every village necessarily has one. Keep the tank full and consider carrying a jerry can.
