Why you must go there:
Before crossing the Atlantic, we had several test runs in the Oslofjord. We had many great experiences along the coast. But one of them stood out in particular: passing Færder Lighthouse. After a long, dark night in difficult conditions, approaching the 43 meters tall lighthouse at sunrise was a revelation. Færder Lighthouse has served as an important landmark for more than 150 years, guiding sailors safely towards Oslo. You can also experience the lighthouse in another fun way during Færderseilasen, one of the world's largest regattas. During this event, more than 1,000 sailing boats will circle the triple islands of Tristein, of which Færder is the middle one.
This is how you get there:
You can sail to Færder Lighthouse using your own boat, or you can contact the Færdergutt ferryboats. Organized RIB-tours to the lighthouse are also available. The nearest ports are at Tjøme and Hvasser. Here, you will also find amazing excursion destinations, such as the "Cliffs at the End of the World" and the Hvasser Syd beach. Please be aware that the area surrounding Færder Lighthouse is generally considered to be quite rough, so do not attempt to row there, unless you are traveling in a purpose-built ocean-capable boat.
