Larvik: the second stop of your motorhome adventure

After visiting Oslo it's time to continue your motorhome trip. We head a little more towards the south of Norway. Here we make a motorhome stop in Larvik, a city where Norwegian traditions still play an important role. Because of its beautiful coastline Larvik is loved by many tourists. Especially in the summer, many tourists choose a vacation in Larvik. If you think you can lie here quietly on a towel on the sandy beach, we must unfortunately disappoint you. It is a wild coast with stones. The special thing about this coastline is that the stones were left behind by the glaciers. Near Larvik you will find Mølen. This is the largest pebble beach in Norway and was created during the ice age. Not only is the nature beautiful here, but you can also spot more than 300 species of birds. Since 2008 Mølen is also on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Not only the coast, but also the cozy center of Larvik is worth a visit. Stroll through the narrow streets and taste the friendly atmosphere of this city. There are several old churches to admire and the Maritime Museum is a must-see during your motorhome stop in Larvik.

Langesund: a popular destination in summer

After about a 40-minute drive, you will arrive in Langesund with your motorhome. Centuries ago, this place was important for shipbuilding. Today it is a pleasant destination for the sunny summer days. An attraction you should not miss during your visit to this city is the old coastal fortress. This fort was built by the Nazi occupier, but was used by the Norwegian army for a long time after the occupation. From here they protected the country from invaders! From Langesund you have the possibility to take the boat to the island Langøya. Here you can find many beautiful hiking trails, which are perfect for a nice walk. Along the way you will encounter beautiful beaches and see a white-painted lighthouse. This tower dates back to 1876 and today you can even spend the night in it.
