Traveling around Norway is quite expensive so crossing the list with desired places to visit is quite slow. Until opportunity shows to visit the bigger cities like Bergen, Stavanger od Trondheim we are moving around smaller places, ones easy to reach but still quite interesting. One of those places was Verdens end this summer.
It was actually one day road trip on occasion of Debeli’s birthday in the middle of August of the pandemic 2020.
We rented a car, made some sandwiches, turned on the radio and went out of the city for couple of hours. Took us around two and a half hours of a casual drive through Viken til Vestfold and Telemark county.
The national park covers 340 square kilometres of mainland, islands, skerries and sea bed in the municipality of Færder while the park’s visitor center is located just around the corner of the one and only restaurant with a magnificent view.
Location is a very popular place for locals and visitors from all over Norway since it’s recognized as recreation area with fantastic fjord view, rocks, fishing spots and skerries.
There’s marina and some beach spots as well, but the most eye catching thing is a vippefyret or the lighthouse, made by stones from the local beaches. The lighthouse or an early type of beacon is a replica built in 1932, quite popular photo spot among the tourists.
We spend few hours soaking up on the sun while laying on the warm rocks although it was rather chilly because of the wind of the open sea. Nevertheless, Debeli managed to dip in a, what I consider to be, freezing cold sea before heading for lunch in Tønsberg.
