Highway E39, Southern Norway´s main transport artery linking Kristiansand and Stavanger, runs right past Kvinesdal. In the mountain side up towards Kvinesheia, with its wonderful open countryside, lies Utsikten with its panoramic views of the Fedafjorden. The view is the most beautiful and impressive along the whole length of the E18 between Stockholm and Stavanger.
Just above Utsikten at Sveien/Kvinesheia the E18 reaches its highest point above sea level lies Utsikten Golf & Konferansehotel.
Along the Fedafjorden you can see the well preserved village of Feda, where the working cooper´s shop is one of the main attractions. Vest-Agder´s best preserved old buildings. A shipping and postal station dating from the 17th century with narrow streets and old houses. A jewel among the many idylls of Sørlandet. An old cooper´s shop by the sea, where the art of making barrels in the old traditional manner is kept alive by young people in the summer.
Every summer thousands of people are attracted here by the large emigrant festival and the religious events in Sarons Dal. Evangelical festival with speakers from home and abroad.
