Go island hopping in the beautiful archipelago outside Brevik and Langesund. The starting ports of Brevik, Stathelle, Langesund (Smietangen), and Helgeroa will make it flexible and easy to get out to the islands in the archipelago.

Jump on and off the boat or join a round trip
You can take nice day trips to different islands around Brevik and Langesund. Join a round trip, or you can go ashore and explore the islands. You can jump from island to island, hike around or cycle on idyllic paths and roads. You won't be able to visit all the islands in one day, but you can easily spend a night or two, either in a tent or with someone who offers accommodation.
