Visitors who are traveling the distance Sandefjord Airport Torp - Kragerø (Tangen) are recommended to use Nettbuss Express where you can buy one ticket for the entire trip. The route Torp- Tangen contains a bus exchange at Fokserød in Sandefjord.

The corresponding bus Tangen- Kragerø city center is included in the ticket fee. The entire trip from start to end is approximately 2:30hours.  

Another possibility is to change between Konkurrenten (Fokserød-Tangen) and Telemarksekspressen (Torp-Fokserød) at Fokserød, but then you would have to buy two separate tickets, one from Konkurrenten and then another from Nettbuss Express. You would also have to make sure that the busses are corresponding at Fokserød.
