Holmestrand Sentrum: Padleled Vestfold

Padleled Vestfold is a paddling route along the coastline of Vestfold county from Svelvik in the north to Larvik in the south. 

It is not typical for a paddler to launch their kayak in the middle of a city but this is both possible and popular in the city of Holmestrand. At the waterfront, a paddler will find everything he or she needs before heading out, and will have immediate access to both short and long paddling adventures.

Cars can be parked at the designated parking areas, which are a short walking distance from the dock near the ferry terminal, where one can launch the kayak. Public toilets (which are open during the summer season) and fresh water can be found on the north side of the harbor. There are public toilets open year-round available in the center of town. The closest grocery store is also found in the town center, just a few hundred meters away from the harbor.
