    “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.
