Cruises from Haugesund
Haugesund is a small municipality in the county of Rogaland, Norway. The port lies near the entrance to Hardangerfjord, and faces the North Sea. The town is situated on a strategically important sound, the Karmsundet, through which ships pass protected from heavy seas. It is the homeland of the Viking kings and Norway’s birthplace.
This is the best location to learn about Viking history. By coach, visitors travel back in time to experience Avaldsnes, 8km to the south, the place in Norway that was first ice-free. Here you will find it interesting to walk through a Viking settlement, where all the locals are dressed and live according to the times of the Vikings.
