About Svinevika to Furuholmen and Langeby
A slightly longer route around Sandefjord’s fjord. Along the route, you pass many suitable places to camp, and we recommend staying the night if you have the time and equipment.
From Oslo, follow E18 east towards Kristiansand for nearly 117 kilometers until you reach exit 42 toward Fv 305 Sandefjord. Follow Fv305 to Fv303 through Sandefjord and follow signs to Larvik. Stay on Fv303 for nearly 6.7 kilometers until you turn left onto the road, Kjerringvikveien. Stay on Kjerringvikveien for 3 kilometers until turning left onto the road, Svinevik, which will take you to your destination.
From Svinevika, the route heads north towards Håkavika and the islets, Kisteholmane, and further on to Sandvika, a northeast-facing beach within the Raudholmane islets. Past the islets, you can paddle along the shoreline, into various coves, and around a few points to explore the area within Saltholmen and the Oulu.
The journey continues north to the islets outside Granholmen, such as the Furuholmene and Bjerkholm islands. Here there are many nice and charming canals, as well as great places to land your kayak and stretch your legs. Granholmen island is also home to the Sandefjord Kayak Club.
Continue up to Trangsholm islands and cross the fjord to the east on the narrowest area. Watch out for the boat traffic and especially the Strømstad ferries!
Follow the coastline down to Vøra beach and cross the fjord back to the west. Follow the coastline south until you return to Svinevika.
At Granholmen you can find:
- Public restrooms
- Public parking
