About Rosanes to Klopp
This is a great afternoon paddling route through urban surroundings.
From Oslo, follow E18 east towards Kristiansand for nearly 96 kilometers until you reach exit 35-Gullikrysset for Rv308 toward Tønsberg/Nøtterøy/Tjøme. Follow Fv308 for 7 kilometers through Tønsberg. Turn left onto Smidsrødveien/Fv309 and after a half kilometer, turn left onto Parkveien. Follow to the end of the road until reaching Rosanes boat harbor.
From Rosanes, the route heads east through shallow waters next to the shoreline. Paddle over a small straight, crossing to the northern tip of Føynland island, and again over to the north side of Husøy island. The next crossing, in the strait between Husøy island and Jarlsø towards Husvik, may have a lot of boat traffic, so be aware of your surroundings.
Along the route, private properties are built close to the water, but it is still very beautiful to see all of the homes along the shore. Further along, follow the route under the bridge at Jarlsø, past the recreational area at Fagersand, before arriving at Klopp swimming area. Here is a great place for a break and a refreshing swim. Return along the same route back to Rosanes.
At Rosanes you can find:
- Public restrooms
- Fresh water
- Restaurants(in Tønsberg)
