Fredrikstad & Hvaler
The charming town of Fredrikstad and the spectacular Hvaler islands complement and complete one another in terms of history, countryside, townscapes, outdoor activities, gastronomy, art and culture. The two communities are almost fused together, being separated by just a handful of tiny islands. Both Fredrikstad and Hvaler are famous for their beautiful beaches and enchanting archipelagos, and together they seem like differing but adoring siblings who can display to their visitors contrasting moods.
