Sitting in the Vestfold county of Norway, Larvik is a small town of about 46,364 inhabitants and covers 530 km². The birthplace of Thor Heyerdahl who is famous for his Kon-Tiki expedition in 1947, the area has its roots in bold Vikings and boats. Coworking in Larvik is possible, as there are a few spaces springing up for the local freelancers, entrepreneurs, startups and small businesses who are over working from the local cafe or for the global wanderers who may happen upon this intriguing city.
You can catch a ferry to Hirtshals in Denmark if you need to escape, as it runs on a daily basis, but Larvik's captivating city life with an astounding history should keep you busy when you are not tapping away on your laptop. Awash in beaches bedecked with promenades and the Bøkeskogen Forrest of dense greenery, the city is alive and buzzing with souls into outdoor sports and innovative thoughts.
When you feel the need to get out of town in the summer months but not over the water, you can head to The Kaupang Viking Town where you can gawk at a replica Viking House and a model of the original city. If you need to treat or pamper yourself from the stress of work you can indulge in a spa on the beach with water from a natural mineral-rich spring. Or, when you walk out the doors of your coworking venue you can head to Stavern and check out the area's vast archipelago of smooth rocks and idyllic islands, quaint lighthouses and the long coastal pathway. The Geopark of Mølen is smothered in rolling stones and where you will find 230 burial mounds from the Early Iron Age and the Bronze Age.
Larvik is one fascinating city.
