Experience the wonderful islands in the Langesund archipelago. You can jump from island to island, walk or cycle around on idyllic paths and roads.

Go island hopping in the beautiful archipelago outside Brevik and Langesund. The starting ports of Brevik, Stathelle, Langesund (Smietangen), and Helgeroa will make it flexible and easy to get out to the islands in the archipelago.

Jump on and off the boat or join a round trip
