History

Fevik was a major summer tourist area from 1930 until about 1960. A large area at the northwest end of Fevik has some very interesting natural features (geological, plant, and insect) and it was made into a national nature reserve area. At the end of the 19th century, the biggest shipyard in northern Europe for iron hulls were in the bay of Fevikkilen. Some boatbuilders are still in the area, making modern cruisers and traditional wooden boats.
