The foundations for Haugesund's developing into an important city for herring export, and later as one of Norway's biggest maritime cities, were laid by the affluent herring fisheries located along the Western coast. Haugesund's maritime business continues to be its most prominent and the city is also home to the Norwegian Maritime Directorate.

Not far from Haugesund you can drive to Karmøy, Norway's most densely populated island. Karmøy has many surprises in store, as well as exciting, historical places to visit. To the south you will find Skudeneshavn, a vibrant and genuine fishing village from the 1800s. Here you can see the Empire style and experience the charming cultural landscape. To the north lies Visnes, an old and quaint mining town of major historical and international importance. Avaldsnes is thought to be Norway's oldest royal residence. This was the manor owned by Harald Hårfagre's after the battle of Hafrsfjord. Avaldsnes was strategically placed by the long stretch of water, which led to the name of our country - the way towards the north - "the Northway". Olav's church, which founded in 1250 by Håkon Håkonson, is the most important monument from past glories at Karmøy. Real coastal culture, fresh seaspray, sheltered bays, striking landscapes and exciting history is what Karmøy is today.

The Radisson Blu Hotel Haugesund can be found between Haugesund and Karmøy. It is set in the middle of a beautiful garden, not far from central Haugesund and Karmøy airport.
