The 6 miles natural harbor in southeastern Norway made Sandenfjord the capital of whaling since the Middle Ages. Today, the Whaling Museum is unique for its exhibits showing the history of whaling in different cultures and Arctic and Antarctic animal life. The city symbol is also a monument related to whaling, that you can find at the end of the main street, Jernbanealléen; a replica of the Gokstad Viking ship also dominates the harbour, reminding of ancient times. The tourist will find a nice place to walk and relax in the nice parks and gardens in the waterfront area. Food is especially delicious; you should visit one of the best gourmet Norwegian restaurants near the harbour or you can enjoy a picnic along the coast by tasting the seafood from the local fishtraders; for this, a bike could be the perfect transportation in a sunny day.
