3 1/2 days around Haugesund

by intlkitty

hi
we will arrive in haugesund on the 16 Aug and leave on the 19 Aug....i have looked at a bunch of sites and don't know where to begin. we are happy to rent a car and happy to stay outside of haugesund if convenient for our explorations. we would like to see fjords, nature, do hiking, and see the culture of the quaint villages..any suggestions of an itinery and hotels/ accommodation?
i saw the 'norway in a nutshell tour' it sounds great but i thought it would take too much time to travel to Bergen.
many thanks

I would suggest a round trip by car:

E134 along Åkrafjorden, left onto road 13 to Odda, a typical industrial place based on cheap hydro electrical power, industrial museum. It is situated by the bottom of Sørfjorden, an arm of the Hardangerfjord. Possibility for a two hour hike to Buerbreen, and arm of the glacier Folgefonna, or a 10 - 12 hour guided tour to Folgefonna itself.

Road 13 to Kinsarvik and ferry to Utne (or road 550 to Utne on the west side of Sørfjorden. Utne is by the Hardangerfjord with a beautifull od hotel from 1722 and an interesting museum, lots of norwegian history and culture!

Road 550 to Jondal, ferry to Tørviksbygd, road 49 to Gjermundshavn, ferry to Rosendal. Rosendal is a barony, the only one in Norway. The "castle" from 1665 is now a museum and cultural center and has a 300 year old garden with lots of roses. Several accomodation possibilities.

Road 48 to Ølfarnes, ferry to Skånevik, road 48 back to E134 and Haugesund, OR onto road 544by Husnes, ferry Sunde - Leirvik and road E39 back to Haugesund.

There are many more things to see onn the way, but I guess you would not have time.

white white sandy beaches

on karmøy u can find white white sandy beaches but it might be cold in the water since its out in the north sea..... but in late summer and after many warm days it might be just warm enough to go fo a swim :-)
sandve sanden is my favourite its not a long beach but a deep one with cliffs to jump from and beach vollyball netts
its about 40 min drive from haugesund and ca 15 min from Skudesnes ...the white town on Karmøy

HAUGESUND AND HAUGALANDET

by SORHUS

"THE TOWN"

Destination haugalandet, which includes the coastal town of HAUGESUND, streches from the island of Utsira in the west to Etne and Sauda in the east and from Karmøy in the south to Sveio in the north.

Have a look at my general tips for festivals and happenings during the year.

NORWAYS BIRTH PLACE
Haugesund is also Norways birthplace for more than 3000 years small kings at Avaldsnes collected tols on passing ships on hte strecht between Karmøy and Haugesund known as Nordvegen. It was here , following the battle of Harfsfjord in 870 AD, that Harald the Fairhaired established Norway's first throne and the straight of Nordvegen gave its name to Norway . North of town there is a big monument in onour of Harald the Fairhaired and his battle to make norway one kingdom instead of run by many small kingdoms

AND IN 2004 ITS 150 YEARS SINCE HAUGESUND GOT THE STAUS AS CITY
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

NATIONAL DAY (17th of may)
National day here is very special
it starts with the canon wakeing up everyone early early in the morning
7am ...the morning parade starts and anyone ( even tourists :-))) can join in) , it starts from diffrent parts in town and meet up with the fishermen statue in town where the flaggs goes to the top just befor 8
8 am ....starts a tradition that began in 1888...the rowing competition
10 am the children parade starts kids from all the schools and kindergarden starts from diffrent parts of town to meet up and marzh together to the townhall ( a building that you learn about in acitect history )
the speaker of the day can be anyone local or from abroad, lot of famouse people has spoken here
after this people join together with friends or go to cafes to have lunch
3 pm.....the folk parade starts it include diffrent clubs, activites ...for example sports team , choirs, carsclub, dancers, bands . its lot of fun to watch
5 am the graduates make a fun parade in their costumes red, blue or black...they make fun of local news, bring their cars etc

the whole day you will see people in their national costume from diffrent parts of norway and after 6-7 its great to take it off (since its so heavy) and hit the sofa after a long day, some of us sometime go out or to a party

the day is celebrated diffrently all around the country, i have celebrated it in diffrent places and must say this city has the best and longest day with things happening all day long...its very easy for tourist to experince alot of celebration without the local knowledge since it all happen down town

"SILDABORDET (herring table) and other festivals"

Every year the town have on on the longest table withe herring and people come running from far away to get to taste it for free

There is also the film festival , Viking festival, Rock festival , old boat/costal day estival, boat races and much more in this town so summer is a busy time

"BIRTHDAY CAKE"

In every ordinary birthday they have cake and so did the town when they celebrated their 150 years.... free cake for everyone :-)
