Vestfold’s coastline has an extensive cultural history. The county by the Oslofjord has played a central role in Norwegian history as a hub for shipbuilding, marine activities, and Vikings.
In Vestfold, the short distance between the charming towns will make your trip more interesting and varied. Stavern is known for its varied and exciting archipelago, whilst Larvik is the birthplace of Thor Heyerdahl. Horten and Sandefjord have a vast marine history, and Tønsberg holds the title of Norway’s oldest town.
Vestfold was a centre of power in the Scandinavian Viking Age, and is the county in Norway where you’ll find the most traces of our proud Viking heritage. Several of the world’s most important archaeological findings from the era are discovered here: Monumental royal burial mounds in Borre in Horten, the Oseberg ship burial mound and Slottsfjellet in Tønsberg, and the Gokstadhaugen burial mound in Sandefjord. Norway’s first urban Viking settlement at Kaupang can be found outside of Larvik.
Discover Færder National Park, one of Norway’s most important areas for coastal outdoor recreation.
You should also pay a visit to the World’s End at Tjøme for breathtaking views.
If you enjoy hiking or biking, the many tracks along the coastal path are an enjoyable experience. Follow the coastline on marked trails and over sleek rocks right at the edge of the sea, and enjoy the sight of Vestfold’s distinctive archipelago. Breathe in the clean air and discover sandy beaches where you can swim and relax in the sun.
Culture buffs will enjoy the county’s diverse cultural scene, which includes festivals, shows, art and a number of museums, like the Slottsfjellmuseum in Tønsberg and Norway’s National Museum of Photography in Horten. For shopaholics, there are countless small shops that sell everything from antiques to designer clothes. There are several options for getting to Vestfold.
