The coastal town of Flekkefjord is located about 2 hours from Kristiansand on the southern coast of Norway. It is a very old place with lots of history. When you walk around the town, you will experience small lane ways with very old wooden white houses, flowers everywhere and even some street art here and there. The locals are very friendly and love their shopping. They are very proud of this little place.
