View from Store Torungen to Lille Torungen and Arendal in spring, planned Raet national park

Year: 2014 Taken by: Peter Prokosch
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 the so called "Raet National Park", outside of Arendal, Grimstad and Tvedestrand and the islands Tromøy and Hisøy, reaching out from shallow to several hundred meter deep sea. The establishment is planned for 2016.
