Here they nestle, the settlements and villages along the south-west coast of Norway, just as they have done for hundreds of years.
Sometimes it seems that time has stood still, and that these little places along the coast are oblivious to the raging developments elsewhere in the world.
CITTASLOW In 2003, Sokndal was the first municipality in Norway to affiliate with the international Cittaslow movement. The idea is to put the brakes on the chase, reduce the pace and prioritise quality of life and the good life. In Sokndal, it’s OK to be a bit different and slightly crazy. The who-do-you-think-you-are attitude is dead and buried here. We have our own Love Week and we focus on our nearest and dearest. We don’t have any tourists – only guests!
Welcome to the good life in Sokndal!
