Kvinesdal - a little heaven for walking lovers

Kvinesdal is the perfect place for a long walk into the nature!

Kvinesdal is a picturesque city (located in Vest-Agder, Sørlandet, Norway) hosting two valleys and the river Kvina rich in salmon (a constant attraction for fishermen), and here are living some people very dear to me, and throughout their photos I could imagine how would be a wonderful journey in the nearby forest...

So, what do you think about waking up in a bright summer day, enjoy your hot coffee made from fresh roasted beans awakening your senses with a strong specific flavor, then go out into the woods for a long walking in the morning...

Here you can enjoy the solitude of your walk either single, as couple or traveling together in a group, absorb the scents, sounds and admire such a rich variety of landscapes so perfectly blended together.

Step on off road paths, feel the freshness of the air, listen to the birds chirp and the sound of leaves while pale of wind are playing with them, observe the beauty of genuine nature, smell the flowers, grass and even trees bark... get full of energy, feel reborn, and get that special feeling that you're alive, reborn and that you can do everything!

Here you can experience Kvinesdal area in depth, to see the surrounding mesmerizing landscape as the locals see it, and the only perfect way to do this is on foot, in the fresh air of outdoors, eventually with the promise of a cozy accommodation, delicious local food, a glass of red wine at return, and a very pleasant company along the way and at the end of the day.

Amongst the woods you'll be amazed to find a little heaven for long walks lovers where one can balance the joy of walking with the thrill of being part of a fantastic landscape where you can ramble freely through the forest along mysterious paths, witness a curious squirrel popped out on your path and staring into your eyes for a split second, or a calm sheep digesting the grass eaten few minutes ago...

The forest scent and idyllic remote trails, sprightly streams where salmon leap offers a sort of romantic realm for the traveler that is walking alongside shimmering waters...

Kvinesdal - this little haven represents the perfect place to go for long walks into the nature, a very beautiful place to visit close to the see and to the mountain, rich in natural resources.
The walking here is fabulous through the forest, valleys, and along the river, and a chance to perceive your body, mind and soul at a different "dimension".
