Færder National Park is the gorgeous region located along the western coastline of the Oslofjord. The park is spread over the islands of Nøtterøy, Tjøme, Hvasser, and Bolærne, just a two-hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Oslo.
The park includes beautiful coastal nature, small rugged islands, and lush seabeds perfect for exploring. Check out the historic city of Tønsberg, hike along the coastal trails, or head out into the water for some snorkeling around the small rocky islets.
Tønsberg, Norway’s oldest city, is the gateway to Færder National Park. Tønsberg is full of historic and cultural attractions and there are many hiking trails surrounding the city. From Tønsberg, you are just minutes from the adventures that await in the national park.
From Tønsberg you can either head south towards Verdens Ende to explore the coastline, or you can jump on a water taxi out to the Bolærne islands. On this small archipelago just east of Tønsberg, you can explore the popular swimming beaches, hike through the varied nature and even visit a historic Norwegian naval base. Spend a whole day — and even overnight — at Bolærne to really enjoy the adventures it offers.
Verdens Ende “The World’s End” has become a popular location to visit at the very southern tip of the national park.

The accompanying visitor center provides information about the national park.
The variety of nature and adventures found in Færder National Park provide a perfect place to enjoy and explore the outdoors. Walk along the coastal trails, go swimming at the popular beaches, or enjoy the quiet forests. The adventures are endless at the “end of the world”.
