    “The shops are good. By boat it takes about 5-10 minutes to the parking lot, from there 5 minutes to the nearest supermarket. By boat to Risör in where the next boat gas station is, it takes about 20-30 minutes. Risör is a very pretty and peaceful place with many white wooden houses. Especially nice is also a boat trip to the archipelago before Risör. There are also restaurants and nice shops. Culturally is offered only seasonally something. Until Kristiansand there are 1 1/2 hours to Oslo for about 3 hours.”

    “Risör is a nice place, but the house is about 10 km entfernt.Wenn one wants to be left in peace as we, it is great for famlies with children or with friends even if you seclusion sucht.Man can do from there many different activities ,”

This is how holiday rental owners described Risør

Risor is one of Norway's famed white towns and was established in 1838. It is well known for its traditional arts, crafts and creativity and these are celebrated with numerous festivals, from the wooden boat festival held each august, to music, design and craft festivals.

Risor municipality has approximately 6.900 ...

inhabitants and covers a area of 193,0 km2, lies in Aust-Agder. It is easy to fall in love with Risor. This white town on the Skagerak is the melting pot of 'Sorlandet'. Outer Risor has the magnificent archipelago and romantic Sorland houses which stand shoulder to shoulder around the beautiful harbor.

The architecture in Risor bears witness to 300 years of development, and the town is known for its beautifully preserved wooden buildings. The town first flourished as a port for exporting timber to the Netherlands. A memorial to this era is the elegant Baroque style church, 'The Church of the Holy Spirit', built in 1647.

Risor is also known for its galleries, three of them are open all year round. During the summer comes at least three more, which is quite good considering that Risor town has only 7.000 inhabitants. The intimate environment in Risor is perfect for the chamber music festival which draws both Norwegian and international musicians and audiences in the month of June. In August, boat lovers flock to Risor to enjoy the elegant lines and traditional workmanship of Europe's largest collection of wooden boats during the Wooden Boat Festival.

Risor has an active nightlife with restaurants and bars.

Perfect fishing holiday in Norway

Norway | Norway is not only a very popular holiday destination because of its breathtaking nature. It is also a paradise for fishing enthusiasts. Deep sea fishing in the North Sea, coastal fishing at the banks of the fjords, freshwater fishing at one of over thousand lakes or demanding salmon fishing in mountain rivers – there is something for every fishermen. And the abundance of fish almost guarantees a perfect fishing day.

At the coast where you are very likely to encounter coal fish, mackerel and cod fishing is mainly free of charge. This means simply “cast the fishing rod and off you go!” When angling in rivers and lakes in the mainland usually a local fishing fee applies. Information on fees and regulation can usually be obtained from the local tourist information or at fishing and sports shops.

In order to guarantee a perfect fishing vacation you should book the appropriate holiday house. This way you keep your independence as many holiday homes are ideally equipped for fishing holidays. When using the atraveo search just click on “Further characteristics”, then on “Special properties” and then choose “Fishing holidays”. You will get a selection of houses which usually provide filleting tables, large deep freezers and possibly a barbecue. Most of these houses are situated right next to a body of water – whether coast, lake or river depends on the region and location you are looking for – and then usually provide a small jetty and a rowing or motor boat.

What could be better for a fishing enthusiast after a successful day than sitting in the evening on the holiday house’s terrace, enjoying Norway’s great nature whilst the catch of the day is cooking on the barbecue.

Popular regions for a Norway holiday with atraveo customers are: Norway’s fjords, Norway’s mountains, the area around the Oslo Fjord as well the island group Lofoten.
