Experiences in Risør
for children and adults
Jegertunet lies next door to Øysang Brygge and is open during the summer, usually from St. Hans. Here you will find a great interior design shop, heated swimming pool, restaurant, kiosk and bar.
Here there is also the opportunity for horse riding.
At Jegertunet you will also find tennis courts (asphalt courts). Equipment can be rented from Jegertunet. If there is a queue, let others go after an hour.
There is a short and cozy path from the cabin on Øysang to Jegertunet and after a walk of only 8 minutes you can sit by the pool and enjoy the sun, cold drinks and something good to eat.
Den Lille Dyrehage
Experience an exciting day for young and old at Den Lille Dyrehage.
Visit the meerkats, lemurs, monkeys and crocodiles in Norway's largest rainforest. Do you dare to hold a snake ...? Go home with a diploma as proof!
Den Lille Dyrehage can be found on Brokelandsheia not far from the cabins.
