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. It is known as the Homeland of the Vikings, as the area used to hold the royal seat of ancient Viking Kings. Today it is a prime travel destination that encapsulates everything Norway has to offer: fjords, waterfalls, mountains, rugged coasts and an eclectic city culture full of both fascinating history and a forward-thinking spirit.
