OSLO–ARENDAL–KRISTIANSAND. Today, travel along the fantastic “Norwegian Riviera”—the Sørlandet (South Land) and the Skagerrak (a strait between Norway, Sweden, and Denmark)—and visit the idyllic harbor town of Arendal.

KRISTIANSAND–STAVANGER. More ruggedly beautiful coastal scenery awaits this morning as you head into the Lista region, noted for its skirmishes against piracy during the 1800s. Head to Mandal, the southernmost town in Norway and a popular holiday resort; Lyngdal, site of Viking-era burial mounds; gorgeous Flekkefjord, which was twice sentenced to extinction by royal decree but survived as a smugglers port during the Napoleonic Wars; and Farsund, home to large Soviet prison camps during WWII.
