Meet up with your local guide for a guided walk through Arendal. Begin with a stroll through the Old Town, called Tyholmen. Here you will find wooden houses that still look the same today as they did a hundred years ago or more. Learn why Arendal was once called the Venice of the North and see beautifully restored old townhouses -- some dating back to the 16th century. View the exterior of the old Arendal City Hall -- Norway's tallest and second-largest wooden building. It was quite an accomplishment when it was built.

On the waterfront, discover the area called Pollen. You'll stop at a local café for a cup of coffee or tea and a delicious, fresh-baked local pastry. Catch an impression of the active Scandinavian maritime lifestyle here, taking in the action at Arendal's lively harbor before you head back to the ship.


Participants must be in good physical condition and able to walk at a moderate pace for a sustained period. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
