In the summer, Svelvik is a great place to be. It is then, that the small and charming village shows it´s best sides. During a few short summer months, the small town "look" is made more alive through holliday guests and travellers.
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.
