Sandefjord is one of the most southerly cities in Norway and lies around 100km south-west of Oslo, the capital. Its city centre is said to be the most charming in Scandinavia, with a mixture of buildings, a good selection of shops and plenty of parking. If you do rent a car with Sixt in Sandefjord, you can travel east and west very easily thanks to the E18 motorway which passes very close to the city. Sandefjord is a good base from which to explore Oslo and the south of the country, especially as it has its own airport with direct flights to the UK and mainland Europe. Sandefjord is also home to Norway's best gourmet restaurant, located by the harbour. Winter sports are very popular in and around Sandefjord and if you drive out of the city you'll find plenty of facilities for sport and recreation.
