This tour provides the perfect introduction to the ancient town of Haugesund, which dates back to at least 1217. You’ll drive past such landmarks as the pastel pink Town Hall, built in 1931 as a gift from a local ship owner and his wife. Continue towards “Haraldshaugen,” raised in 1872 as a national monument commemorating The Battle of Hafrsfjord. This is when King Harald Fairhair won over the chieftains of 29 historic counties and unified Norway into one kingdom. Then, it’s off to the Steinsfjellet viewpoint, almost 750 feet above sea level and offering impressive vistas.
