A vibrant town that dates back to the time of the Vikings, Haugesund is said to be where Harald Fairhair - the first Viking King of Norway – is buried and boasts an impressive history. Now known as the cultural hub of Western Norway, Haugesund is home to several festivals and events throughout the year including the Norwegian International Film Festival.

Formerly an important fishing and shipbuilding town, Haugesund has developed into one of Norway’s most exciting commercial regions, combining small town charm with bigger city amenities. Explore the town centre and discover Haugesund’s large shopping centres, markets, restaurants and pubs or take a short trip away from the town and immerse yourself in the scenic Haugalandet countryside, taking in the beautiful sights and sounds of the surrounding waters and fjords.

There are still plenty of historic sites to discover in Haugesund, despite it's recent modernisation. Haraldshaugen, the site of one of Norway’s most important historic monuments located just north of the town centre. Here you will find the burial mound, the stone cross, the church site and Haraldsstotta – the national monument that commemorates the unification of Norway. The site is said to be where Harald Fairhair – the first Viking King of Norway – is buried.
