Arendal is a medium-sized town in the south of Norway. Its old city centre still retains wooden houses, dating back to the 17th century. The old harbor is called Pollen, and this is where you will find the fish market, cafes and restaurants. The surrounding countryside is hilly and green, and offers beautiful vistas over the islands and waterways nearby.
