Imagine natural scenery so close you can almost feel it within reach of your fingers.
An outdoor and indoor water park located on an idyllic beachfront at the long and beautiful Rosfjorden has made this possible.
Its floor-to-ceiling glass facade assures that the guests can enjoy the view of the entire bay directly from the swimming and fitness facilities.
Sørlandsbadet literally means ‘the bath of the south’ and is Norway’s most southernly water park.
It is located in Lyngdal, a one-hour drive away from Kristiansand and two hours from Stavanger,
making it easily accessible for both locals and tourists.
A long tradition of tourism in the area is evidenced by the amount of cabins and camping areas close by.
“Because of the quality of our facilities and services, the locals as well as tourists enjoy swinging by,” says general manager Atle Homme.
“We have a strong relationship with the local community and the locals consider us to be an attraction to be proud of.”
The outdoor facilities called ‘Badeøya’ are open during the weekends in the low seasons as well as during the entire summer holidays.
One of the most popular activities is the 60-metre-long waterslide,
giving incredible views over the water as you slide downwards.
“A lot of adults love it too,” says Homme.
“We have even had participants in the yearly championships in Norway, and the current record is 6.42 seconds.”
In the years 2011 and 2012, the café was extended to accommodate more people and assure that the guests can rehydrate during their stay, An idyllic water park
have some light snacks and even a full meal such as hamburgers and pizzas.
“A lot of families come and spend an entire day here while on holiday,”
“They appreciate that the facilities are so clear and organised,
which makes it easier to keep an eye on the kids.”
The younger children especially enjoy the swimming facilities and Sørlandsbadet can organise birthday parties for those interested.
“We offer a range of activities, but the most popular one is actually just to come and have fun in the water,” says Homme.
