Droneguide for play and leisure


Songdalen is situated in the south of Norway, bordering to Kristiansand and Vennesla in the east, Marnardal in the west, and Søgne in the south. A suburb of Kristiansand, Songdalen's administrative centre Nodeland is a short 10-minute drive from the city centre.

The landscape of the municipality is heavily shaped by the last ice age.  Songdalselva (Sygna), a river flowing through the valley Stallemodalen in Vennesla, and falling into Songdalen through a gorge at Underåsen. Here it receives more water from the right from the Gumpedalselva tributary. The river drops no more than about 20-meters  over the last 20-kilometer  to the river mouth, and has on this stretch a very meandering run. It is recognized for fishing, canoeing and other recreation opportunities.

In the southern part Songdalen's altitude is close to sea level, but increases up to a maximum of 414 meters above sea level in the northern part. The climate changes correspondingly, from coastal in the southern part to a more inland type climate in the northern part.
