Portør and Levang

About

Portør
Portør, outermost on Levang Peninsula, was long one of the most important of the outer coastal harbours. Portør was mentioned as early as in Snorre’s Sagas of the Kings. Countless dramatic events have taken place in these waters. An old pilot station with guard room lies here as well as a reconstruction of an early optical telegraph. Numerous archaeological finds have also been made here.

Portør is just as fascinating in autumn and winter, when stormy winds howl and breakers pound the shore, as it is when the sun bakes on its beaches during summer. A path to lovely Ospevika Cemetery lies just after the turn-off to Portør. Open-air church services are held in this unique natural setting every summer.

Stangnes also lies along the turn-off road to Portør. This is an outstanding and award-winning recreational area with smooth and gentle cliff sides sloping down to the swimming areas. The peace and quiet of this delightful spot is ensured by restricting traffic to a parking area a short walk away from it. All summer long members of the Kragerø Hiking Association (Kragerø Turlag) use the fisherman’s cottage built in the 1870s as an informal cafe where they serve coffee and waffles.

Levang
A far different and much newer neighbourhood in Levang is Haslumkilen “village” on the Støle Fjord. This “village” of summer cottages, complete with narrow streets and lanes, is located only a short stroll from Levang towards Stabbestad.

Støle Church was built in 1892. This old wooden church, scheduled as a Historic Site, lies close to the old coastal road between Kragerø and Risør. The church’s cemetery is nearby in forested terrain.
