Port information

Port of Lyngdal (c) Lyngdal Touristinformation


The actual historical and natural heart of the region’s immense cultural treasures stems from Lyngdal, at the very end of the Lyngdal Fjord. The sailing distance from the coastline is approximately 10 km (7,60 miles), with anchorage/use of tenders by the Rosfjord beach. The approach surrounded by islets and mountains, forms a natural dividing line between the southernmost part of Norway named Sørlandet and the western part of our country, giving visitors a distinctive experience. Located between the cities of Stavanger and Kristiansand, Port of Lyngdal offers excellent opportunities as an alternative port of call along the coast.
Excursions in the region
The region of Lister gives you an opportunity to experience both coastal landscapes with long white beaches and epic mountainous terrain with boisterous river rapids. Typical of this region are the small towns with their white, weatherboarded houses.
