The city of Larvik stands on Norway's south coast and on the main E18 coast road. It has grown up between the mouth of the Numedalslågen River and Lake Farris. Larvik is 65 miles south west of Oslo. Visitors who hire a car in Larvik can explore the surrounding area, including highlights like the High and Low Activity Park with its zip wire, rope bridge and ladder trails through the forest, and the Foldvik Family Park, with its gardens, domestic animals and family activities. The old citadel fortification at Stavern makes a good trip too. The area is rich in natural attractions, like preserved beech forests and sandy beaches, including Lydhusstranda at Naverfjorden.
Larvik is an attractive waterside town with a busy harbor; ferries leave regularly for Denmark if you wish to explore another area. Hire a car in Larvik to tour round the city and its immediate surroundings. You'll see a collection of preserved historic buildings housing visitor attractions, including Larvik Museum, which tells the story of how the region grew rich on making iron, the 17th-Century Manor House which holds a collection of antiques, and the Maritime Museum housed in the old customs house. Larvik's open town square is a relaxing place to wander, note the sculptures made from local granite. Elsewhere, look out for the childhood home of adventurer Thor Heyerdahl and the new modern waterfront Bølgen Culture House on Larvik Fjord.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
