Trail description

From Langeby, the route heads south along the shoreline where you pass one of Vestfold's finest beaches, Vøra beach, before paddling around the peninsula, Kvernberget. At Slottsvika you find a great place to stretch your legs on the beach.

The trip continues south towards the open ocean, past Gutteglova and Jenteskjæret islets, which are found further south. The next kilometer consists of steep rocky islets, which make it very difficult to land ashore, before you reach Rørvika beach.

After Rørvika, there is another stretch of one and a half kilometers of steep rocky islets before you reach the beach at Folehavna. From Folehavna, you will paddle south, between the rocky islets and then around Tveitanodden peninsula, which is the southern tip of Vesterøya island. Continue paddling northeast, past Askvika, to Fruvika beach. Here you will find a beautiful beach, full of pebbles and sand, with amazing views of the sea. Return to Langeby the same way you came.
