The small town of Haugesund offers a broad spectrum of natural beauty ranging from a vast and wild coastline to snow-capped mountains with cascading waterfalls flowing into the fjords. The town’s biggest claim to fame is that the father of Norma Jean Baker, better known as Marilyn Monroe, originally came from Haugesund.
