In the summer, Svelvik is a great place to be. It is then, that the small and charming village shows it´s best sides.
Originally, there were two villages - Svelvik in the north and Strømmen in the south - which emerged on the banks of the fjord right opposite the Svelvik Moraine. This moraine divides the fjord except for the narrow passage of Svelvikstrømmen.
The ferry in the middle of the village is a part of Svelviks history when it travels from Vestfold and Buskerud every 15 minutes.
