Haugesund

Welcome to Norway’s new Port of Call: Haugesund. Haugesund is situated between Stavanger and Bergen – nestled between countless small islands and endless mighty fjords – such as Åkrafjord, Hardangerfjord and Lysefjord. The town itself offers exciting specialist stores for clothes, interiors and wellbeing. Trawl the pedestrian streets to sample the sea air or enjoy a soothing cup of coffee at a cosy café. Haugesund is a young and vibrant town with roots dating back to Viking times. A thousand years ago, King Harald Fairhair united Norway into a single kingdom near here. Ever since, Haugaland has laid claim to the title “Homeland of the Viking Kings – Norways Birthplace”. As in Viking days, seafaring and trade symbolise this coastal region.
