Coastal Pine Forest, Hove, Tromøy

Year: 2012 Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The coastal pine forest at Hove on Tromøy shows unique shapes and is used as main recreation area outside Arendal. The Coastal Archipelago Park of the South Coast ("Sørlandet") of Norway covers an area of the Skagerak coast between Grenland in Telemark and Lindesnes in West Agder, including many hundreds of islands and skerries. The Sørland coast is one of the most important recreation areas of Norway and hosts a unique coastal ecosystem with special habitats and a rich biodiversity. Therefore tourism is regulated accordingly with special nature reserves and bird sanctuaries in place. Presently discussed are plans to develop a national park ("Raet Nasjonalpark").
