Svarstad – Larvik
The last stage goes from Svarstad to Larvik. You pass the circular Damvann with up to 200 meters of vertical mountain sides. The beech forest in Larvik is Norway’s largest and the world’s northernmost public beech forest. There are also several good bathing spots along the bike route.
The last stage through Vestfold is surprisingly hilly. There are a number of shorter slopes there you rise approx. ten to thirty meters above sea level, which together lowers the average speed and requires a little forces. But the landscape is nice. It is rural with farms, meadows and small roads with little traffic. And finally, the sea opens up when you get to Larvik, and can take a well-deserved break by the water. From Larvik there is a train connection on. Note that there is some deficient signage lately kilometers towards Larvik, so a digital map is recommended.
