I had never heard of Farsund before. It was an unknown port of call tacked on to the end of an eight day cruise. I wasn’t expecting much from it, to be honest.
It is a port that most cruise ships never visit. Low profile and obviously off the mainstream cruising radar. Hence my low expectations.
Boy, was I wrong.
Check out these pictures of this compact, beautiful little port of call. Farsund is chocolate box pretty, compact and uncrowded. In fact, I found it one of the highlights of the cruise. A rare, undiscovered gem, with all of the charm, but none of the crowds.
Of course, the fact that we had a picture perfect day weather wise did not exactly hurt, either. But, in any event, Farsund is worth a few hours of anybody’s life.
Cruise lines, please take note. It really is far out in Farsund.
