Living and experiencing

Kristiansand Dyrepark

Kristiansand Dyrepark is a stunningly beautiful combined animal and amusement park outside Kristiansand. The park officially opened in 1966 and has since developed into the second most visited tourist attraction in Norway after Holmenkollen. Here you can experience animals from all over the world, water parks and the Norwegian fairy tales up close. 

The park is open all year round, but with limited services in winter. During the school summer vacation, all attractions are open and many shows are performed daily.

Car leasing

Leasing cars for an extended period without a social security number or financial history in Norway can be challenging. 

If you need a rental car or leasing of a car, you can contact local car dealer Gumpen, who can offer favorable deals based only on written confirmation from your employer. Book here or send an e-mail to Kenneth Abrahamsen or call (+47) 456 64566. The car can easily be picked up at the airport in Kristiansand if needed. Please note: your insurance company in your home country will keep a document showing your possible previous accident history in traffic. We recommend that you bring this document with you to Norway, some car dealers or insurance companies will ask for it before giving you a price. Also remember to check the validity of your driver's license in Norway.
