About Steinbrygga to Rørestrand

A short beginner route along the shoreline surrounded by Viking history.

The adventure is part of Padleled Vestfold and the entry point for the adventure is Steinbrygga at Borre.

Getting there

From Oslo, follow E18 east towards Kristiansand for nearly 88 kilometers until you reach exit 34 (Undrumsdal-Krysset) for Rv19/Rv306 toward E6/Havn/Moss/Horten/Rv311/Åsgårdstrand/Undrumsdal. Follow Rv19 for 5 kilometers before heading south on Kirkebakken/Rv325 for 500 meters. Take a left onto the road, Steinbrygga, and follow it until you come to the parking area at the boat harbor.  

Trail description

Follow along the shoreline to the north towards Horten and past the historic Viking town of Borre. You will then come to Langgrunn, a large man-made harbor with lots of facilities and a coastal cabin with the same name. It can be a bit difficult to land the kayaks here as it is quite shallow and somewhat rocky.

The route continues past the new sea rescue center before reaching the large area of Rørestrand and Rørestrand Camping. Enjoy a break at Rørestrand and return back to Steinbrygga along the same route.
