Map of Haugesund
Haugesund is lovely and well worth a visit. Lots of Viking heritage, breathtakingly beautiful viewpoints and extremely friendly people in this town said to be built on herring bones! I hope to come back and visit again.
Haugesund is a pretty town with a quay where locals pull up for a drink. There was a great IMAX like movie of the area that showed area waterfalls & mountains in helicopter spinning visuals. Apparently it was supported in large part by local energy companies, as they discussed the energy picture almost as much as the scenery of the region.

Went to visit Arquebus Defense Museum, excellent place to visit. All about Norway's occupation by the Nazis during second world war , hundreds of large and small exhibits from bullets to tanks, cannons, guns and everyday objects. Fascinating history and the time just flew.
Small town with soms nice bridges and houses. Free shuttle bus to the town centre. Do the panoramic tour sold by the red church. Cheaper then by the cruise company.
Didn't book shore excursion; walked harbor promenade & enjoyed free panorama movie at Scandic Maritime Museum, but should have taken excursion to Bukkoy or Karmoy Islands instead.
