From the outermost skerry on the coast of Bamble to the mountains in the north of Skien, the landscape is incredibly beautiful and diverse, with everything from dense forests to the most modern urban centres.

The distance between the region's attractions are short, making it possible to do several different activities in one day. What about a refreshing dip in the fjord, sampling freshly caught shrimp from Langesund, gallery tours, kids' activities, hiking and visiting a few of the region's sights?
