Åsgårdstrand – Sandefjord
Today you continue towards Tønsberg on minor roads and cycle paths. Tønsberg is a lively summer town with harbour life and the characteristic Slottsfjellet. A trip up here gives a great view of the fjord.

From Tønsberg you have two choices. 1: Cycle out on Nøtterøy to Tenvik brygge and take the ferry out to Veierland – a car-free, idyllic island. Here you can enjoy the calm atmosphere before you take the ferry on to Engø brygge and cycle into Sandefjord. This is a very special experience and absolutely recommended. Just check the time schedule of the ferries.
Alternative 2: Follow the coastal route further along the mainland to Sandefjord. Here there are pleasant, winding roads past farms. The map shows option 1.
You can find information about the ferries Tenvik-Veierland-Engø.
