Norway > Vest-Agder County

Vest-Agder is a county in Norway, bordering Rogaland to the west and Aust-Agder to the east. In 2002 there were 157,851 inhabitants, which is 3.4% of the total population in Norway. The county administration is in Kristiansand.

It is the southernmost county in Norway, extending inland from the North Sea and its arm, the Skagerrak. Most of the habitation lies along the coast, including the towns Kristiansand, Mandal, Flekkefjord, and Farsund. Some 31 fjords are located there. Shipping, commerce and recreation are the main industries. As the Gulf Stream touches the coast of Vest-Agder, it is also called "the Norwegian Riviera".
