From Viking history to "The World’s End"


Vestfold is situated in the south of Norway. The largest towns Larvik, Tønsberg, Sandefjord, Horten and Holmestrand are all located along the coast. Vestfold is easily reached by air to Torp Sandefjord Airport, or by ferry with daily departures from Denmark and Sweden.

The whole region is known for locally produced food and fresh delicacies from the sea - and also has a rich Viking history. Four of Norway's Viking ships have been found here, including the Gokstad ship and the Oseberg ship, which you can see at the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo.

When in Tjøme, make sure to visit Verdens Ende (World's End), a recreation area with a fantastic fjord view, rocks, fishing spots and skerries. Verdens Ende is 1 of 5 “World’s Ends” in the world. Here you get majestic views to the horizon. Verdens Ende is probably best known for "Vippefyret" - the lighthouse made by stones from the local beaches. The lighthouse is a replica built in 1932.
