Haugesund

Norway

Cruises to Haugesund

Although the region of Haugalandet has a rich Viking heritage, Haugesund is a vibrant young city touting culture and arts festivals. The Folgefonna Glacier to the north and the Preikestolen Mountains to the south - creates an enchanting backdrop for seemingly endless possibilities for outdoor exploration. Discover the Langfoss Waterfall - nominated by CNN as "One of the 10 Most Beautiful Waterfalls in the World" - that rushes down a steep mountainside and into the fjord below. Enjoy a scenic hike or bike ride on one of the many trails crisscrossing the landscape or visit the tranquil beaches of Karmøy for breathtaking views.
