On the coast of the Skagerrak, the Flekkefjord port is one of the largest fishing and fish farming towns. During the early times the Dutch were trading partners in the area. This is where Hollenderbyen, which means the Dutch town, stems from. The towns date back to at least 1700.
There is a museum located in Flekkefjord. It is called the Flekkefjord Bymuseum. The building for the museum was a patrician building from the 1720s. The Bymuseum recreates scenes from old shipping voyages.
Hidra, is an island that is located at the fjord’s mouth. The island can be reached using a car ferry that travels from the mainland to the island. The island is well known for the harbors that are very scenic. These harbors are Eie, Rasvag, and Kirkehan. In addition, Hidra offers a wonderfully vibrant island community. The area has been preserved extremely well and the majority of its charm from the days it was a center for sailing and fishing remain.
On the western side of Flekkefjord there is Ana-Sira, which is also a fishing village. It marks the border between Vestlandet and Sorlandet. Also nearby is Sira-Kvina Krafselskap. Here you can arrange a tour of the power station. It is just one of the seven stations that are located on the waterway of Sira-Kvina.
