Norway's southern-most town is a picturesque fishing community facing into the North Sea. It stands on the E39 coast road and is 25 miles west of the city of Kristiansand. Visitors who hire a car in Mandal can drive to the popular spot on a headland to the east where the Lindesnes Lighthouse marks the southern extreme of Norway. The lighthouse houses a museum, and there's a shop and cafes at this rocky headland. Other highlights of the region include Tregde Feriesenter resort, which offers a swimming pool, boat trips, a waterfront restaurant and sports activities.
Mandal retains the atmosphere of an old nautical town, thanks to rows of pretty white-washed wooden cottages along its narrow streets with a river running through the centre. In summer there are restaurant tables extending across cobbled streets serving fresh seafood. If you hire a car in Mandal you can tour all the town's sights, including Furulunden, a park and forest area of the town with playgrounds and long sandy beaches that are among Norway's finest. And don't miss the Buen Culture Hall - the town's modern arts centre on the waterfront, the Vigeland sculpture museum and the Mandal Kirke, Norway's biggest wooden church.

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.
