Set off on a historical walk around Farsund, a small coastal town with an exciting history of sea trade and piracy. Guided by the Port Guard or a local guide, you’ll learn about the rich marine culture and heritage of the town, all while taking in the charming atmosphere. 

For the best views of the town, we’ll take a trip to the top of Varbak Hill. Just a short walk from the town centre, the hill has a lookout point with a wooden bench and picnic table. From here, you can see all the way to Lindesnes Lighthouse, the building that marks the southernmost point of Norway, 20 kilometres away. 

After a short stop at the lookout, we’ll make our way back down the hill and head back towards the pier, where you’ll rejoin the ship.
