About

Skåtøy
We start the day by taking the ferry to Skåtøy. From the Skåtøyroa ( the ferry port) on a dirt road over a hilly terrain we travel by bike until our first stop of the day, the Skåtøy Church aka "Archipelago Cathedral". Close to the church is a small cafè Skåtøy Cafè and Gallery that offers nice homemade treats while watching this years many art exhibits. The onward journey cycled in scenic surroundings ends up at Korset , almost at the sea . On a warm summerday it is great to take a bath while waiting for a taxi boat that will bring us to Jomfruland and Aasvik pier.

Jomfruland 
On Jomfruland a flat dirt road will take you north towards Øytangen but first you´ll have the possibility for having a lunch at Haga Kystkafé (at Tower). After lunch you can walk up the tower to see the panoramic view of the archipelago. At the tower is both Lighthouse keeper's house and the old Skolestua where there are exhibitions in the summer. Not far away you´ll find the shop "Sjarm" that offers clothing, interior and delicious gourmet food.

Behind the tower is the famous Tower-pond where Theodor Kittelsen got his inspiration for the folktales character Nøkken (water troll). From this point you can clearly see the moraine that extends along the entire coast along Vestfold, Telemark and Aust-Agder. See also how different all pebbles are because they during the Ice Age came from different mountains in inner Telemark and Aust-Agder. Bicycling  further north, we will pass Jomfruland Manor and Hasselgården. On Hasselgården organic herbs and vegetables are sold. Then the bikejourney continue through a magnificent oak forest and out to Øytangen - a beautiful recreational area with lovely white sand beach.

We end the day by taking the ferry back to Kragerø in the afternoon from Tower wharf (Tårnbrygga) at Haga Kystkafé. Preorder a taxi boat before departure, and calculate approximately 3 hours after arrival Skåtøyroa to be picked up at Korset by the taxi boat. Then you have a enough time ! Taxi price will vary by number of passengers.
