Follow Rv 308 for 31 kilometers through Tønsberg and Nøtterøy until you reach the island of Tjøme and finally Stall Verdens Ende, where there is a parking lot just north of the harbor. The travel time is normally around two hours.
From Oslo, there are hourly train departures to Tønsberg with NSB. From Tønsberg, there are hourly bus departures from early in the morning to late in the evening to Verdens Ende. Check Entur for schedules.
A great starting point for the Moutmarka trail is the parking lot at Verdens Ende.
From the parking lot, head north along the fence to Stall Verdens Ende. When you come to the road, Skåeveien, head west, over some farmland and through a gate onto the blue-marked trail. Follow the trail as it turns north and takes you near the coastline, over svabergs, (large rock formations), through some rugged terrain, over some grassy knolls, and finishing at Tjøme’s nicest swimming area, Mostranda.
It is 3 kilometers from the start of the trail at Verdens Ende to Mostranda. You can return to the beginning of the trail along the same path or you can return along the main road and biking route. For the alternate route, follow the road Moveien up to Helgerødveien, and continue south on this road until you reach Verdens Ende.
