Removals to Sandefjord

Sandefjord is a Norwegian city and the most populous municipality in Vestfold County, Norway. Boasting 150km of coastline, Sandefjord  has a rich and historical heritage. It’s a popular spot for expats who enjoy the traditional charm of this seaside town. It was also an important location for the Vikings, around 1,000 years ago. For history lovers there are numerous reminders of their presence in the form of monuments and artefacts.

Schepens have assisted many families moving to Sandefjord, especially over the past decade. We always enjoy hearing what this small Norwegian city has to offer from an expats’ perspective.


A Glorious Location

For those who are adventure seekers and have a passion for the outdoors, Sandefjord’s natural landscapes are paradise. And you don’t have to travel far from the city centre to enjoy them. Sandefjord is a relatively small county, but has three fjords the Sandefjordsfjord, the Mefjord and the Tønsbergfjord which combine to create 150 kilometers of stunning coastline.

Getting Around

Within a comfortable walking distance, there all numerous attractions in the city centre; although for some beaches and other venues public transport or a bike is recommended. It’s £8-13 to reach the city centre by bus and this journey will take approximately 15 minutes from Sandefjord Airport, Torp.

Eating Out

Expats really enjoy indulging in the local seafood, which is a Norwegian speciality. While in Sandefjord, try delicacies such as smoked salmon or Røkt, and dry-cured ‘gravlaks’, which literally translates as ‘buried salmon’. For a more advanced palette, moose reindeer, house and deer certainly provide an alternative and interesting choice. Local dish-favourites comprise kjøttkaker – which is  a ‘rougher’ version of Swedish meatballs, and Fårikål – a hearty mutton stew which is the national dish of Norway.


Sandefjord is home to an interesting range of galleries, sculptures and museums. The stand-out attraction is the whaling museum; which is Europes only venue dedicated to whaling and its history. The original museum building from 1917 features the animals and birds of the Arctic and Antarctic regions, the full-sizes replica of a blue whale immediately catches the eye. The museum’s exhibitions and films are entertaining and educational for all ages; and there is a special activity room for children.  Sandefjord is home to an interesting array of galleries, sculptures
