Padleled Vestfold is a network of paddling routes located along the coastline of Vestfold county from Svelvik, in the north, to Larvik, in the south.
Langvika is a good starting point for paddle trips in a varied and sheltered area. It offers memorable experiences among the many islets and reefs in the area surrounding Færder National Park. Just outside of the strait between Langvika and the island, Hui, you can paddle near one of Tjøme’s most distinctive landmarks: the shipwreck of M/S Silvestre, which sunk in 1925.
Around Langvika, there can be a lot of boat traffic in the summer season, so kayakers need to be very aware of their surroundings. In summer, the island of Hui becomes a summer camp and therefore it isn’t allowed to land the kayak on the island.
Kayaks and other equipment can be dropped off at the Langvika Marina, but cars must be parked approximately 400 meters further south. One can also choose to launch the kayaks from the beach at Bekkevikastranda, but this requires one to carry the equipment about 100 meters down the path to the beach.
In the marina, there is access to fresh water and public toilets. The nearest grocery store is found in Tjøme city center.
