Ose is a village in Bygland municipality in Aust-Agder county, Norway. The village is located along the river Otra, just north of the lake Åraksfjorden. The Norwegian National Road 9 runs through the village. Just across the river to the north lies the village of Austad, and about 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) to the north along highway 9 lies the village of Moi.

The Reiårsfossen waterfall lies about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) to the south. The area just southeast of the waterfall is the site of Reiårsfossen Camping, which is also the location of the Ose Country Music festival.[2] There is a traditionally-built log building in Ose called Storståga, which is used for various exhibitions.

The SS Bjoren is a wood-fuelled heritage steamboat that travels the route between Byglandsfjord-Bygland-Ose across the lake Byglandsfjorden and Åraksfjorden each summer.
