Great Outdoors in a landscape to die for

From activity and adventure for all ages, to a memorable, family beach holiday – it`s time to discover Fredrikstad and Hvaler`s great outdoors, where a 750-kilometer coast frames a glorious rural landscape. That gorgeous coastline paves the way for beachcombing, shoreline-strolling and sandcastle-building – there`s no end to the number of fabulous, free days out in Fredrikstad and Hvaler. 

Fredrikstad and Hvaler overflows with special landscapes, archipelagos, and nature reserves. At the coast`s core is a classic rural landscape of undulating cliffs and sculptured granite rocks, quaint little and picturesque fishing villages, with their narrow lanes, ornate wooden houses, and leaning boathouses. Green fields, ancient woods and swatches og big-sky marchland add extra appeal. The irresistible walking and cycling territory is traced by a tempting network of long-distance routes and day trails – there are many hundreds of kilometers of public rights of way alone.

Remember, this is where you can eat some of the world`s best seafood. Add to this fantastic coastline a few crabs, langoustines, shrimps, lobsters, mussels and mackerel, the sun setting over the marine national park by the Hvaler Islands, a warm golf stream, and the feeling og having found your very own island on wich to pitch your tent.
