Færder National Park

Færder National Park is one of two marine national parks in Norway, and like Ytre Hvaler National Park it enjoys an easily accessible location in Eastern Norway. The park covers 340 square kilometres of mainland, islands, skerries and sea bed in the municipalities of Tjøme and Nøtterøy in Vestfold county. The park was established to preserve a characteristic coastal landscape with great biodiversity and relatively untouched countryside.

Færder National Park and the surrounding area make an attractive tourist destination. A variety of outdoor recreational activities are available to both the local population and the many visitors. The management of the park is based on the principle of conservation through use. Here you can come face to face with nature on its own terms.

Experience nature

Færder National Park offers a host of experiences – all year round! Of course it’s lovely here in summer, when you can go swimming or bask on the smoothly-polished rocks, and the music of the nightingale trills out at dusk. But the coast is alive all year round, offering changes, colours and moments of beauty that are almost beyond our imagination. As any local person will tell you: you just have to experience it!
