Full description
Meet your guide at the cruise ship terminal in Haugesund. Start the tour in the city, where you will visit one of the most famous buildings in Norway, the Haugesund Town Hall. Learn about how the building was a gift to the city from shipowner Knut Knutsen OAS and his wife Elisabeth. 

Then head over to the Garpaskjærkaien harbor in Haugesund and climb aboard an air-conditioned coach. Depart for the Åkrafjorden and Langfoss fjordlands, driving along incredible mountain roads with sweeping views of the surrounding landscapes. Pass by idyllic gardens and lush hillsides as you discover the contrasting scenery of this part of Norway. On the way, hear inspiring tales and stories about life in the mountain caves. 

Make a stop at the workshop of an experienced 'rosemaling' artist. Learn about this form of decorative painting, which originated as a folk art tradition in rural Norway. Admire the ornaments of swirling flowers in refined color combinations as you are welcomed into the artist's home. Take a relaxing stroll through the beautiful gardens on her seaside residence. Enjoy a typical Norwegian local lunch buffet with tastes of the sea and the land. 

By the end of the tour, you will have found out what Norway is all about: the coziness of the home, beautiful views, and inspiring moments with good locally produced food.
