Board your vessel at the pier for the approximately 1 3/4-hour narrated cruise to the small port of Korsvik. Your cruise travels along the Blindleia Passage, a sheltered inner fare protected from the open sea. Sail past islands, islets and skerries and view villages and small white wooden houses along the shore. These old fishermen's residences are popular vacation homes today.
A highlight of Kristiansand is a boat trip along the coastline speckled with islands. You will cruise to the neighboring town of Korsvik—a route of unusual beauty via quaint coastal communities of traditional mariners’ houses, now converted to holiday homes. At Korsvik, transfer to a waiting motor coach for the scenic drive to Lillesand—the most beautiful town in the region. Once bustling with maritime activity, Lillesand features 18th- and 19th-century white timber houses, and is endowed with a sheltered harbor and a current population of 8,200. There will be some free time for you to soak in the atmosphere of this charming town, aptly named the Jewel of Sorlandet before returning to Kristiansand along the scenic coastal road.
