Melsomvik: Padleled Vestfold

Padleled Vestfold is a network of paddling routes located along the coastline of Vestfold county from Svelvik, in the north, to Larvik, in the south.

In Vestfjorden, between Nøtterøy and Stokke, is where you will find the idyllic Melsomvik. Melsomvik is full of charming, wooden cabins and a harbor for boats which has been in action since the Middle Ages. The popular beach Sandbånn is located on the eastern side of the bay.

There is often large amounts of boat traffic in the waters around Melsomvik and throughout Vestfjorden during summer season. Be aware of crossing open water.
