VESTFOLD

The sunshine coast

Scroll down for inspiration
or go directly to our plan your trip page.

Welcome to the end of the world!

That’s what the name Verdens Ende means.

You’ll see why when you get to this southernmost tip of Tjøme in Færder national park.

The art of doing nothing is one of the most important art forms in Vestfold: sunbathing on soft islets, swimming in small beach coves, and sailing where the wind takes you.

But if you still like doing something, the options are plentiful all year round.

Do as the locals: Go hiking through the region on marked coastal paths, on sandy beaches, and through cosy villages …

… give your kids a treat in one of the many activity parks, like Høyt & Lavt and Foldvik Family Park …

… and experience the lively, yet relaxed atmosphere in cosy seaside havens like Tønsberg – Norway’s oldest town.

All the towns in Vestfold – Stavern, Larvik, Sandefjord, Tønsberg, Horten, and Holmestrand – face the sea.

Superb dining, exciting shopping, and a diverse cultural scene are also among the main ingredients.

The whole region is known for locally produced food and freshly caught treasures from the sea.

A tasty highlight is Bocuse d’Or winner Geir Skeie’s restaurant Brygga 11 in Sandefjord.

The Viking history lies thick over Vestfold. Four of Norway’s Viking ships were found here – two of which you can see at the Viking ship museum in Oslo.

This is also where you’ll find Kaupang, Norway’s first town and Viking settlement.

If you’re an art lover, you’ll be busy in Vestfold. Visit the Preus museum at Karljohansvern in Horten, which exhibits photography and visual art, see Andy Warhol’s tribute to Edvard Munch at Haugar Art Museum in Tønsberg, or walk in the world-famous painter of the Scream’s footsteps in the white-painted gem of Åsgårdstrand.

If you’re dreaming of a romantic getaway, or want to pamper yourself in scenic surroundings, the hotels will have you covered.

And the good news: You’re never far away from a room with an ocean view.
