Grimstad is a small town in the Aust-Agder county of Norway. Grimstad is an interesting little town that is set along a series of islands. The town and region are renowned maritime areas with great seafood and plenty of great scenery in the surrounding area like many parts of Norway. One part of the town you need to see is the Binabben look-out point, which has some great views of the town that span out into the ocean. We recommend you hire a car in Grimstad from our branch to see the best of the town and surrounding areas.
There is a district close to Grimstad called Tyholmen, which is a harbour that features many beautiful 17th century wooden buildings. What makes these buildings so intriguing is the neo classical, baroque, and rococo influences that are ever present. Nature is also a must see here because you can go to Arendal Sommerfuglpark where you can see beautiful butterflies, moths, even snakes and frogs. If you enjoy theatre shows then you need to go to the Quarry Theatre. This is truly unique because it's performed in an old quarry. Some of these sites are outside of the town itself so it's best to hire a car in Grimstad first and then visit the sites near the town.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
