Description

Vestfold is the smallest county in Norway. However, this does not mean that there is a limit of things to see and do for the visitor or resident. It only means that there is a short distance between adventures and activities, and between the beautiful, the interesting and the exciting. Why spend valuable time in a car, bus or train if you don't have to?

Vestfold is renowned for its Viking ships, Gokstad and Oseberg, and scientists recently established that Kaupang in Vestfold was the first market place in Norway.

The county's small towns have friendly streets with shops and places to enjoy a nice meal, where you can sit in peace and write a postcard telling friends and family how beautiful this county is.

Vestfold has a long coastline and the North Sea Trail runs from Svelvik through Holmestrand, Horten, Tønsberg, Stokke to Sandefjord. There is also a part south of Larvik at Mølen. The coast and the paths are for everybody to enjoy and there is no need to queue! (There's room enough for all.)

Enjoy polished, smooth cliffs and the feeling of hot sand between your toes, far away from the hustle and bustle. Visit Vestfold and put your feet up!


In Vestfold the North Sea Trail follows the numerous coastal paths in the area. Presently, the trail is about 150 km long, but it is growing all the time as new paths are established.
