"A wonderful experience"
We have used many different ferry routes to get to Norway but this was our first on this route. The port, Stromstad, is scenic with lots of islands and one sees the ferry approaching between these islands. Once on board the ferry was lovely and clean and had a nice area in the stern where one could sit outside and enjoy the sun but were protected by glass so the view could be enjoyed, had a cold drink as the weather was warm. We then went into the shop which was like a department store selling just about everything at prices lower than in Norway, the meat was really good value. There was no passport check in Sweden but there was in Norway and customs check there too but as we were in a UK car we were not searched. The entrance into Sandefjord was also pretty so many photos taken. This is certainly a trip I will repeatRead More Read Less
"Very good experience"
We both feel that the trip over to Sandefjord was very succesful, with both friendly staff and good food. We will travel with them again.Read More Read Less
The city of Stromstad is located in the Stromstad Municipality, Vastra Gotaland in Sweden. The city has a small population of around 6,500 but due to historical reasons it is still classed as a city. Located by the mouth of the River Stromsan, the city can trace its origins back to the 1500's where timber was being transported along the river to be sold to waiting ships. Over time, the city became an important centre of shipping and then in the second half of the 18th century the city really prospered during the great herring fishing era. At the same time the foundations were laid for what was later to become the main symbol of Stromstad; the spa resort Stromstad.
The oldest part of the city is Bukten where terraced houses can be found offering great views of the harbour and of the boats. These houses were constructed at the end of the 18th century and during the whole of the 19th century. Stromstad's only remaining cobbled street is also in Bukten and according to local legend, the women who lived in the houses along the street carried all the stones there themselves.
From the city's port, ferry's can be taken to Sandefjord with a crossing time of around 2 hours and 30 minutes.
The Norwegian town and port of Sandefjord is a modern town that has an interesting history and is home to a number of cultural events. The town is around 120 km to the south of Oslo and is popular with tourists. It has a good selection of restaurants and cafes and according to some guides, the town is home to possibly the best gourmet restaurant in Norway, which is located in a modern building near the harbour. Also located at the harbour is the fishmonger which is well known for the excellent quality of its fish and other delicacies. Sandefjord also has a charming city centre which consists of a mixture of old and modern buildings and a wide range of shops.
One of the most important finds from the Viking age was found at the grave site of Gokstadhaugen in Sandefjord. The Gokstad ship can now be seen in the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo and is a popular visitor attraction.
Ferry services from the city's port depart to Stromstad and to other destinations along the Norwegian coast.
