Padleled Vestfold (The Paddle Route) is home to some of the best paddling routes in Norway, making it the perfect place to visit if you’re interested in exploring the country on kayak. It’s located in Vestfold county, from Svelvik in the north to Larvik in the south.
The area covered by Padleleden is perhaps Norway’s best and most popular area for water sports. The many islands, both large and small, are great for beginners to more experienced paddlers. If the weather is windy, there is no shortage of small inlets and shallow waters along the coast. For more open waters, head to the east.
The area has 28 different starting points. Each has an information board with maps and suggested adventures. Use the map for information where you can find toilets, drinking water, grocery stores, and parking. By summer 2019, multiple shelters will be available on various islands for paddlers to spend the night in.
