Eastern Norway Viken ASKER

Filtvet and Tofte villages by the Oslofjord

  • Stranda 3, Asker
  •  /  km From You
Overview

The tip of the Hurum Peninsula has had a central position when shipping traffic was the link between both sides of the Oslofjord and today consists of beautiful unspoilt coastal scenery and charming southern villages.

The tip of the Hurum Peninsula has had a central position when shipping traffic was the link between both sides of the Oslofjord and today consists of beautiful unspoilt coastal scenery and charming southern villages. Here we introduce you to two different towns that are reached by summer boat to Filtvet, by car or by bike.

Filtvet is easily reached by boat during summer time and we start at the pier where we have great views over to Son and towards Filtvet Fyr. Follow Strandveien past the small houses towards Filtvet Lighthouse and the beautiful white beach where you can rent waterjet, swim and sunbathe and enjoy good ice cream from the ice cream bar. On the other side of the lighthouse is a nice green area with benches.

Probably, Filtvet has been a port since the Middle Ages where loading and unloading of goods and exports of timber has been conducted. From the 1740s to the 1770s there were operations in three iron mines near Filtvet. These were owned by Moss ironworks, and were located on or near Husebykollen. Mining ceased and seamen settled in Filtvet. From the 1780s, Filtvet was also a customs office under Drøbak's customs district. But after Tofte Cellulosefabrikk was built in 1897, Tofte emerged as the largest urban area in the area.

If you have lunch at Villa Malla there is a real danger of not wanting to leave this beautiful white bay with a view to the lighthouse ....... but new experiences are worth the detachment.

Filtvet lighthouse is the region's only lighthouse and has been in operation since 1840 and was automated in 1985 and today is a coastal gallery with changing exhibitions throughout the summer. The garden and beach are open for for swimming and recreation. Various events such as exhibitions, concerts and lectures are also organized. It is possible to rent the lighthouse.

Tour suggestions at Filtvet:

Follow the dirt road that goes on the upper side of Villa Malla and you will reach a nice wooden bridge and Ekrebukta and follow the coastal path further towards Tofte. Alternatively, you can take the Bjørnstadt hike, which is an hour's walk in the loop north which offers bathing beaches, fishing opportunities and game drives from Svingen farm.

Tofte is located at the south tip of Hurum and is among the areas in the country with the highest average temperature. This leads to a lush plant and bird life on the islands and in the Sandbukta-Østnestangen nature reserve. It is said that the most beautiful part of the coastal path is the trip from Tofte to Rødangen via the nature reserve with the possibility of tenting along the way. Cozy trip with great views of the coast. There is abundant wildlife of seabirds and seals in the archipelago at Tofte. The area around Tofte has significant occurrences of the rare species of mistletoe and barberry.

Tofte center is elongated with small shops, Greek restaurant and local and mediterrean delicacies at Kultivar. Tofte has several beautiful sandy beaches and grassy areas for fun with good toilet facilities such as Apotekerstranda and Preisserstranda.

Tofte Cellulosefabrik AS and Hurum Fabriker AS, became the cornerstone companies that the entire Tofte community depended on for over a hundred years until the factory was closed down in 2013. A strong working-class culture grew on site and the population expanded. Today, the area has been transformed into a business park and Tofte has several well-preserved buildings that describe industrial history.

The polar ship Maud made for Amundsen is for storage in the harbor to the south of Tofte pending the construction of a museum.
