 Oslofjord Tunnel

Hurum is a municipality in Buskerud county. The administrative centre of the municipality is the village Sætre.

Hurum is connected to the eastern side of the Oslofjord via Oslofjordtunnel, one of the longest undersea tunnels of its kind in Northern Europe. The tunnel is 7,2 kilometres long and connects Hurumhalvøya to Akershus county.

Hurum is located on the southern part of Hurumhalvøya, which is the peninsula between the Oslofjord and Drammensfjord. The administrative centre is the village of Sætre, which together with Holmsbu, Tofte are one of the two most populated villages in Hurum.

Holmsbu is a small village located on the west side of the peninsula of Hurumlandet on Drammensfjord. Old wooden buildings along the waterfront are largely preserved. The village has attracted both artists and tourists.

Hurum was once suggested as the location for the new national airport of Norway. The plan was, however, abandoned, due to fears of too much fog in Hurum, and the main airport is now situated at Gardermoen in Akershus.
