Day trip to Sweden & ferry across the Oslo fjord to Sandefjord
You might like to take a day trip to Sweden and return by ferry across the Skaggerak. In the holiday season, it is wise to pre-book your passage and car on the ferry.
The photo shows the ferry arriving at the city of Sandefjord.
This needs a little organisation but is a rewarding trip. We suggest that you drive to Strømstad, taking Slemmestadveien road south from Vollen, through Nærsnes to Sætre and then the sub-fjord tunnel to join the E6 in direction Gøteborg. It will take you about 2 hours to drive to Strømstad.
From Strømstad you can take the Fjordline ferry Oslofjord or the Color Line ferry across to the city of Sandefjord. The ferry takes two and a half hours to make the crossing so there is plenty of time for a meal or some tax free shopping.
From Sandefjord you drive north through Drammen and Asker to Vollen, again about 2 hours drive.
