Hafrsfjord is situated north at Jæren and is 9 km long and leading to the airport. The depth of the fjord varies from 3,5 m to 60 m which means that large boats can not enter the fjord. In the north there is a bridge, Hafrsfjord brigde, where it is possible to cross the fjord.
Hafrsfjord is known through the Norwegian history as the place for the battle that united Norway to one kingdom in 872. King Harald Hårfagre (Harold the fairhair) won that battle and settled at Utstein which later became a monastery.
