The Norwegian town and port of Langesund is one of Norway's most popular destinations during the summer months. Dating back to 1765, the town has a long tradition as a port for lumber, shipbuilding and ice and is set in a beautiful location on a fjord that shares its name. Visitors taking a stroll through the town will see plenty of examples of well-preserved and restored buildings that date back to the 18th century. For visitors interested in the outdoors, the area surrounding the town is known for its interesting geology and flora.
Langesund's popularity as a summer destination stems from the large number of sunny days it has each year. Popular attractions in the town include the Wrightegaarden which hosts many outdoor concerts during the summer, usually at the weekend. Famous musicians that have performed at the Wrightegaarden include Bob Dylan, Elton John, A-Ha and Little Richard. Also popular in the town, and perhaps its most famous landmark, is the Langoytangen fyr, which is a lighthouse located on the peak of Langoya, a kilometer long island right outside Langesund.
The town's port offers ferry services throughout the year to Hirtshals in Denmark. The ferry port has 4 short stay parking spaces outside the terminal. Inside, there are vending machines providing snacks and refreshments.
The city and port of Bergen is located on Norway's west coast, on the peninsular of Bergenhalvoyen, and is sometimes called the city of The Seven Mountains.
